Hate Planting Hedges? Try This

It takes ages to plant a good sized hedge.  All those plants to peel out of their pots, position and protect from harm. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could just dig a trench, put a mature hedge into it, backfill, irrigate and go home?

Well, thanks to a British grower - you can do exactly that.

Instant Hedging solutions from Arbour Landscape Solutions do exactly what the name suggests.  Choose your species, select the height you want your hedge to be and we’ll deliver your living hedge in 2.4 metre long sections. The sections are even labelled so that you plant them in the right order.  Yes, they will need to be planted as soon as they arrive on site, and, being big plants, they’ll want plenty of water for the first few weeks. But my goodness - they do make life easier - especially if your client wants a mature hedge in a hurry.

Free Yourself From The Misery Of Building Block walls

Of the 5,000 or so products on the Arbour Landscape Solutions website, this has to be one of the most innovative.

The solid wall system replaces bricks and blocks for creating retaining walls, water features, solid screens and similar structures. The results - a solid, reinforced concrete wall with no joints, all ready for you to finish with tiles, cladding, render or paint.

Lightweight recycled plastic modules are assembled to make a mould for your wall. Fill the mould with poured concrete and leave your wall to set solid. It really is as simple as that.

Fun fact: Each module weighs just over 3Kg and measures L 60.5 cm  x H 53 cm x W 15cm.  Normal concrete blocks for an equivalent size weigh around 11Kg - over the course of a whole project, that will make an enormous difference to the state of your spine.
