Summerhouse by Rowlinson Garden Products

Chatsworth Summerhouse

We chose the Chatsworth Summerhouse by Rowlinson Garden Products for Luke and Jackie because it has a real cottage garden feel. It is bright and airy, with fabulous bifold doors and two fixed and two opening windows made of toughened glass.

“The Chatsworth” is based on a classic with its hipped roof, has generous roof height and bags of style for outdoor entertaining. With plenty of room for furniture Luke and Jackie can fling open the double-doors and enjoy life to the full.

This stylish outdoor building is made from 12mm shiplap cladding, with a 12mm tongue and groove floor and a mineral roofing felt.

We turned it into a wonderful workshop for Luke by adding a bespoke workbench, stool and tool cupboard.

Bespoke pond from Maidenhead Aquatics

Bespoke Pond Kit

Ponds aren’t right for everyone’s garden, but it was perfect for this one! We selected the bespoke pond kit from Maidenhead Aquatics because it contained all of the components that building a pond required – right down to the plants.

It comprised of 10’x8’ 0.75 EPDM rubber pond liner, underlay,  Laguna Clearflo kit 2500 –  which includes a pressureflo 2500 filter and a 2200 maxflo pump.

Pond plants include 8x 1L marginal/bog plants, 4x 1L oxygenating plants, 1x 3L water lily.

Maidenhead Aquatics also supplied us with some of the carnivorous plants, which are great fun to grow….and very amusing to open up last year’s pitchers to examine the dead flies! RRP £315.15 For more information, please visit fishkeeper.co.uk

GTL Bridge 2

Koi Bridge by Gardenbridge

Koi Bridge by Gardenbridge

We wanted to build a lovely bridge over the pond and we chose the Koi Bridge by Gardenbridge because it had a gentle gradient, with attractive and decorative handrails. The bridge measures 2.1m x 1.2 metres it comes in a natural wood colour (which is treated) , however we painted it in Protek Woodstain’s Royal Exterior cornish cream to match the summerhouse, shed and kennel.

The wooden garden bridge came in kit form and was very straightforward to put together. It comes in a range of sizes from 1m – 3.6m long and 60-120cm wide. There is an option to have anti slip boards plus solar LED lights in it.

The Koi Bridge retails at £419. For further information and lots of other fabulous bridges, go to www.gardenbridge.co.uk

Pavers from Bradstone

Woburn Rumbled Rustic Pavers

We wanted to give Luke and Jackie’s garden a really country cottage feel and the Woburn Rumbled Rustic Pavers by Bradstone were perfect. This delightful cobble-type paving features a rumbled finish with smooth rounded edges and a softer surface for a weathered appearance and a slightly mottled effect.

The natural stone pavers come in 4 different sizes and we used 3 to give a really natural and random effect. We selected the Rustic colour, however they are available in Autumn, Brindle, Fossil Buff, Graphite and Autumn Block – something to suit any garden.

Because they are pavers, they can also be used for drives and a feature circle kit is also available.

The pavers retail at £28.10 per square metre – for more information on the Woburn Rumbled Rustic Pavers and for more great landscaping products and ideas, go to http://www.aggregate.com/bradstone/

  1. Love the pavers! Just wondering if there is risk of weeds growing in between the blocks? I have seen this in some gardens while others with the same type of paving look perfect. Is it because the owners keep weeding or is there a technique when installing the blocks, to avoid weeds? Thanks

  2. Just caught up with last night’s episode – I too would like to know the name of the soft green colour that the fences were painted in please.

  3. Please could you supply details of the water feature (transparent bowl sitting in an metal basin) shown on 12/8/14.
    Thanks

  4. Protek royal exterior mendip mist I have just received a reply from protein clarifying the colour . They recommend I use this on my gate but to use sky grey blue wood stain protector on my fence, 2 coats on each. I too thought it was green but it’s a blue paint hope you find this useful and you can buy it direct from protek on line

  5. Hello, Could I please have a planting list too, and if anyone knows what the round purple headed flowers were that were in the cottage garden and also used in the handtied flower arrangements is, that would be appreciated. Thanks
