USEFUL INFORMATION
             CARE & MAINTENANCE


             With careful handling, Haddonstone needs no special maintenance as
             long as it is not exposed to extreme conditions. For example, it is
             recommended that in very hot weather a planter should be watered
             only in the early morning or cool evening. Also, in freezing conditions,
             fountain bowls should be emptied. To avoid harming the stone surface
             rock salt, proprietary de-icers or chlorine products should not be used.

             Haddonstone is less susceptible to the detrimental effects of
             weathering, which can damage the laminated structure of quarried
             stone, and can be aesthetically more pleasing as it often matures and
             develops character much earlier. Like quarried stone, Haddonstone can
             exhibit slight shade variations from piece to piece, reflecting the colour
             of the natural materials used in the production process. Customers
             should also be aware that natural dyes in composts containing peat,
             coconut husk or coir can produce a brown staining which is very
             difficult to remove. Many fertilizers contain ferrous compounds that can
             cause rust stains. Cast-in fixings and reinforcement used during the
             standard production process are non-ferrous, usually stainless steel.
