It is strongly recommended that Customers request physical samples of stone from any range before placing orders; customers are advised to visit Milton Garden Products to view all products prior to ordering. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the goods are suitable for their intended purpose. The goods are sold on the understanding that they are of natural stone which is subject to natural formation characteristics, variation in colour, texture and markings and are all part of the natural makeup and appeal of natural stone.
