Chilstone Projects

Chilstone have worked on a wide variety of architectural stonework and garden landscaping projects throughout the UK and abroad. On this page you can find out more about some of the projects we are most proud of including The Laskett, Sir Roy Strong’s spectacular private gardens on the Welsh borders. Homewood Ridge House in Langton Green is a great perfect of an architectural stonework scheme that is not only sympathetic to the design of the property, but also the houses in the surrounding area. We will be adding a wide variety of projects – hopefully providing further inspiration.

Restoration Bespoke Planters for Kensington Palace Gardens

Kensington Palace in London, home of Prince William, commissioned Chilstone to replace twenty two 16th century Pulhamite planters that had gradually deteriorated over the century. Pulhamite was a renowned composite stone and a forerunner of Chilstone's cast stone. The palace asked us to replicate these small stone planters as part of a major refurbishment of Kensington Palace and gardens to commemorate the late Princess Diana.Chilstone used the original planters to replicate the detail on the replacement planters that were hand finished by our master crafts men.We were proud to be asked to work on this outstanding garden dedicated to the memory of Princess Diana and to add craft these  key pieces for the garden of the current residence of Prince William and his family. We were delighted when Prince Harry made our Kensington Stone Planters world famous when he announced his engagement to Meghan Markle to the world's press in the garden, between or Kensington Planters.With 65 years experience, Chilstone have created bespoke products to replicate damaged stonework for many clients, including Hever Castle, Kew Gardens, Embely Park and Tunbridge Well's famous Chalybeate urns in the Pantiles. Our cast stone looks like quarried stone. Its composition encourages moss and lichens and increases in value as it weathers.
