January 2015 - NEW FOR 2015 - COREgravel

Gravel is one of the most attractive, economical and versatile surfaces on earth. But without help, it's inclined to move around, creating ridges and ending up where it shouldn't. Core gravel is the solution. It creates a naturally porous stabilising base into which the gravel site - and STAYS! It's easy to lay, inexpensive and very, very effective.

As you can probably guess from the title, the month of November has taken the Living Gardens team to the coast. This month has mostly been spent in Lytham in a Landscape Contractor capacity, working closely with a leading northern garden designer, bringing to life their detailed plans by constructing a large modern outdoor space.

The Living Gardens Team can now tell that there is a bite of cold in the air, however some prefer these working conditions as opposed to the blazing hot sun! Autumn is a great time of year to see colour change in leaves which can give a garden a totally different look. It’s also one of our favourite times of year to go for a walk, kicking through leaves as you do!

August 2014 - Composite Decking

Weather-wise August was amazing! Good temperatures and nice breezes have made it a real joy to be out there doing what we love – building gardens! This month took us to Alderley Edge in Cheshire.

July 2014 - An Idea for the Front Garden!

It’s always a question that people ask, “What should I do with my front garden?”. It’s not always easy to answer – in fact it is usually followed by a question back from Living Gardens “What do you want from your front garden?”. A common answer is “I just want it to look nice”. A not so common answer is “An extra room for us to sit in in all weather conditions – hidden from the public view”.
