Love your Lawn…

The grass doesn’t always have to be greener on the other side. Think about what shape you’d like your lawn to be, and feel free to be creative with this. From rectangular to square, circular to oval, there’s a shape that suits every garden. It’s important to look after you lawn, taking care of it in all conditions.

  • Smartedge lawn edging –We recommend using Smartedge lawn edging to keep your lawn looking neat and tidy all year round. This nifty product prevents roots and earth from distorting the edge of your lawn, making it perfect for placing around the lawn's edge, flower beds, or between lawns and paths.
  • MeadowMat –You can also add some colour to your garden with MeadowMat, which is a blend of 40 species of flowers and grasses that can help you create your very own meadow. It's a great way to attract birds and bees while adding a touch of natural beauty to your garden. These rolls of meadow flower planted turf are easy to install - in fact, just the same as laying a lawn!

Paving can be a game-changer when it comes to garden design. Whether you're looking to create a patio area, pathway, driveway, or courtyard, the paving you choose can make all the difference aesthetically and practically. There are many options available, from porcelain to natural paving and everything in between, so it's important to choose the one that's right for your outdoor living space.

Recommended paving products:

  • Porcelain Paving–Porcelain paving is a great option as it's man-made from natural materials, providing a beautiful finish with added slip-resistant practicality. It's resistant to water stains, salt, and mould, making it a hard-wearing, solid surface for your garden.
  • Concrete Paving–Concrete paving is also worth considering as it comes in a range of colours, shapes, and sizes, replicating natural paving in an easy to lay alternative.
  • Clay & Brick Paving–Clay and brick paving blend in perfectly with your garden, plants, and trees, providing a slip-resistant, durable, and strong option.
  • Sandstone Paving–Sandstone paving comes in a unique blend of colours, making for a rich and natural appeal. Sandstone is a versatile material with different styles and finishes to suit different tastes and styles.
  • Limestone Paving– Limestone paving is natural, hardwearing, and durable – great for withstanding the British weather! It’s also slip resistant and comes in a wide variety of colours.
