Established in the mid 1970s in memory of BALI founder member Geoffrey Chalk, the BALI Chalk Fund provides funding and bursaries for skills development across the landscape industry.
Trustees comprise past and current BALI members (including several past chairmen) whose role it is to identify industry causes that meet the Fund’s criteria for support.

To date, the BALI Chalk Fund has facilitated the development of industry training materials, awarded travel scholarships to enable young landscapers to learn from their counterparts overseas, provided training prizes for the winners of the national finals of the WorldSkills UK Landscape Gardening competition, and supported land-based colleges by providing trophies for outstanding achievement to students on landscape-related courses. The Fund is currently helping to support the development of an industry CPD programme.

 This site grew from a single page, established back in 1997, that attempted to explain the correct construction of a block paved patio for a friend who was having trouble with their contractor.

Since then it has been through at least 4 major revisions and now totals over 400 pages of top class information covering all the major paving types used in Britain and Ireland, and receives over 125,000 unique visitors each month during the season.

This version of the site has been specifically set up to improve the public perception of the paving and hard-landscaping trades by promoting best practice and best products with a free exchange of information between the three major participants - the contractors, the manufacturers and the general public. The aim is to provide contractors with a central source of information and news, to help ensure the general public and the keen DIY'ers have access to free, expert and impartial advice, and that manufacturers and stockists have a showcase for their quality products.
