Are Samples Of Landscaping Materials Free

07/03/2023 - Developers And Self Builders

Choosing materials for a landscaping project involves quite a few decisions and having samples to hand can really help you and your clients to pick the perfect products.

When you have a sample in front of you, you can see what the product looks like when wet and at different times of day.  and in the environment of the property and its surrounding landscape.

You can also use a landscaping sample to help visualise how products will look side by side. Pavers with threshold drain channels for example, or split face stone cladding alongside an outdoor worktop.

So where is the best place to source samples of landscaping materials, and what will it cost?
