Special Thank You To Rolawn

Rolawn is Europe’s largest producer of cultivated turf and is also recognised as Britain’s leading supplier of high quality sustainable soft landscaping products, including topsoils, mulches, barks and composts. The Rolawn brand is the recognised benchmark of quality and service, achieved through a commitment to advanced production processes, innovation and attention to detail in all areas for over 40 years.

Medallion® is Britain’s biggest selling and most frequently specified turf, being the first choice for both professional and domestic gardeners who demand the best. The Rolawn brand is the industry benchmark of quality and service.

Rolawn prides itself on providing technically superior market leading natural turf that will adapt more rapidly to the growing conditions in any garden, compared to traditional turf. All gardens are individual, with variations in shade, drainage, planting scheme, percentage of hard surfaces and levels of use, or should that be abuse! Turf that is healthy will want to root quickly and rapid establishment of newly laid turf leads to strong robust great looking lawns, best positioned to take on the challenges of being a domestic lawn.

At the heart of all great gardens lies plants. They are an essential part of our ecosystem and their healthy proliferation is dependent on what they are growing in, the topsoil. High quality, fertile, safe, peat-free topsoil is Rolawn’s other horticultural passion. The appropriate sourcing, testing and blending of base soils and soil improvers to provide a growing medium with the right characteristics to support virulent plant growth is far more complicated than it may first appear. Careful consideration has to be given to the elements that go into making both a general-purpose topsoil and then a task specific topsoil. As with Rolawn’s Lawn and Seeding topsoil, it has a higher sand content than a general soil, with added GroRight Lawn Establishment Fertiliser, to save householders from having to worry about soil nutrient levels for new lawns in their first growing season. All their products are now BS EN ISO9001:2015 and BS EN ISO14001:2015 certified, which gives independent audited proof about their market leading quality and environmental management systems.

The Best Tool For The Job – Is A Burgon & Ball Tool!

The team working on the 2016 series of Love Your Garden has once again enjoyed using high quality stainless steel tools from Burgon & Ball in garden projects across the country. This is the fifth series for which the Sheffield-based manufacturer has supplied tools and accessories, and the team still loves them. The tools are certainly put through their paces during the filming – and they don’t disappoint!

Spades-&-Forks-leaning-against-tree-(Lifestyle)

This year the Love Your Garden team has used Burgon & Ball digging forks and spades, Groundbreaker spades, hand tools, pruning knives, Ground Master multi tools, Kneelo kneelers and rakes. In addition, a selection of watering cans, retro enamel giftware, trugs, plant labels, and more besides have been featured in the gardens. Many of the tools are endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society, possibly the highest gardening accolade.

Burgon & Ball started manufacturing cast steel shears in Sheffield’s industrial heartland in 1730 and has exceptional expertise in steelmaking. This expertise makes all the difference when it comes to quality, since many of a product’s most important attributes only emerge when a tool is used. It means that Burgon & Ball can ensure an edge tool cuts beautifully – not just when it’s brought home from the shop, but months and years down the line, too.

In recent years Burgon & Ball has won some major industry awards for design and innovation with its tools and accessories; ideas like the Weed Slice, the Razor Hoe and the Poc-kit gardener’s utility belt.

All in all, Burgon & Ball offers a brilliant combination of expertise, design and quality, making these tools the perfect choice to tackle the challenges faced by the Love Your Garden team!
