Along with the way people communicate and the changes in technology, the availability and range of landscaping materials have greatly progressed the use and purposes of our outdoor living spaces.

That perennial favourite decking has morphed into all manner of hardwood, recycled and composite alternatives, as well as the widely used softwood original.

The range of surface finishes continues to grow, check out our gallery to find some inspiration.

ARTIFICIAL GRASS has become far more sophisticated in appearance and choice and is improving all the time. Horticultural purists may frown, but for those who don’t have the time nor inclination (or perhaps find it difficult to cope through health reasons)- artificial lawn alternatives can offer a welcome relief from the drudgery of regular cutting, feeding, aerating and weeding, whilst, at the same time, providing a consistent, all year-round appearance.

We can even supply pet friendly grasses which are polyurethane, instead of the more traditional latex backed, for better durability. Completely safe and easy to maintain, we stock a complimentary range of associated products to ensure that your grass installation remains odour free and hygienic. 

Of course, you can employ a professional to manage your garden for you, but if that isn’t for you – this just might be the solution. We have a dedicated page offering four popular alternatives for general use plus options to cover a range of different situations.  Contact our knowledgeable team with your specific requirements to receive a no obligation quotation for supply and installation.

This stylish finish provides versatility and an alternative to traditional fencing or screening systems, with none of the rot, maintenance or warping associated with timber products.
