The UK’s leading supplier of natural stone

Welcome to CED Stone Group, natural stone specialists

CED Stone Group is a family business spanning three generations. A unique heritage, our involvement with natural stone dates back to the middle of the 19th Centrury when the company supplied raw flint from France to the ceramics industry. In 1978, our Chairman, Michael Heap, decided to sell specialist natural stone aggregates, and now, we are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of quality natural stone and hard-landscaping products.

At CED Stone Group, we pride ourselves on offering our customers the best products on the market. Our mission is to provide the landscape industry with beautiful, ethically sourced, sustainable materials to allow them to create a beautiful and lasting garden design.

We supply a vast range of materials, including composite decking, porcelain paving, and installation and maintenance products from some of the best brands on the market. Our passion, though, is natural stone.

We keep extensive stocks of natural stone products across our six nationwide depots, from decorative gravels and pebbles to paving, setts, walling and reclaimed stone. The designers favourite for rockery, feature stones and boulders, we have gained a reputation for being the go-to-company for sourcing the unique, the large, and the unusual.

Each nationwide depot has a display area showcasing our latest products, and our experienced teams will take the time to listen and get behind your vision, offering friendly and helpful advice to ensure you select the perfect product for your design.

We also provide in-house services such as Stone Matching, CAD Drawings,

Expertise And Knowledge

“Thank you to the guys at CED stone. Working only from a vague description and some photos, Will Meeks and the team worked through my design and requirements and have provided me with three tons of stone to create the pond and stream that I wanted. Many thanks for your expertise and knowledge, without which, I would never have been able to create the final product I had imagined.”
