6 reasons why you should use aggregates in your garden?
If you are looking for an attractive, low maintenance alternative to higher maintenance flower beds then decorative aggregates could be the answer. You can choose from a wide range of colours and types including slates, beach pebbles and natural stones.
Topsoil is the top layer of soil in which all plants grow. It contains all the nutrients that plants need to grow and thrive.
Topsoil can be used to create new flowerbeds and borders or to provide a base for laying turf or grass seed. Topsoil is ideal for growing healthy vegetables. When planting trees or shrubs, replacing the existing soil with topsoil will help plants grow better. The depth of topsoil for either a new lawn or plants should be between 4 and 6 inches deep.
Twenty five percent of all heat loss is through an uninsulated roof. Insulating your loft, attic or flat roof is a simple and very effective way to reduce your heating bills and good quality insulation will last for up to 40 years.
Thinking of updating your garden? Adding a decked area will give you a place to entertain as well as somewhere to keep your garden furniture and potted plants. Before you begin you need to decide whether to use hardwood decking or the new composite decking.
