Company: Timco Wood UK Ltd
Product name: Grey solid composite board
Price: £48 m2
In the Iqbal’s garden we faced a couple of major challenges – no back access and the vast existing patio which was a bit of an eyesore. To combat the latter, we created the largest decking area ever seen on the show!
Timco Wood UK Ltd kindly helped us out with this providing their outstanding grey solid composite decking for the garden build. We wanted the decking to be a neutral colour to contrast dramatically with the bold, bright planting scheme and garden dressing. The great thing about Timco composite is the decking is made from recycled products like polyethylene, which also means it is extremely low maintenance, making it the perfect choice for the Iqbal’s and their busy lives. The decking will not rot and has a safe, anti-slip groove which makes it safe for children.

Company name: Ikea
Product name: Äpplaro Outdoor sofa
The Iqbal’s often hold big family gatherings and we wanted to give them a fantastic seating area which could not only fit everyone in, but also looked amazing. The Ikea “Äpplaro Outdoor sofa range” fitted the bill perfectly. The great thing about this range is that the pieces are sold separately, allowing you to add as many sections as you like to create the ultimate bespoke seating area. The rich colour of the wood complimented the colourful planting and other dressing of the garden.

Product name: Summer gas BBQ 4 burners
Product name: £1070
The Iqbal’s have traveled the World and experienced many cultures. We wanted to give them a little piece of Australian lifestyle by providing them with an outdoor kitchen. This way they can prepare food and still entertain their party guests. Wayfair came forward with this mobile outdoor summer BBQ that was perfect for what we needed. The BBQ came with storage, a sink and a large area for cooking. David did have a little trouble constructing the BBQ as came in quite a few bits. But once he got going the BBQ was soon complete and ready to put into place. We did have to plumb in a hose line for the sink, but this was easy for our boys from Frosts. We finished the kitchen with a preparation area and a colourful flower beds and herbs.

Company name: Acanthus Cast Stone Products
Product name: Octangular pool surround
We wanted to give the family a stunning central focal point with a tranquil feeling. Acanthus Cast Stone are a company that produce beautiful stone products like the octagon pool surround they provided for this episode. Portland stone was used to clad the water feature, chosen for its subtle yet sophisticated colour. Firstly we made a breeze block wall to the right shape and size, and then added the elegant stone surround. We wanted the pool to be as reflective as possible, which is why we used the black water proof paint for the inside of the cast stone surround. The Catalpa trees Alan planted around the pool beautifully framed the focal point and also reflect in the water. For a bit of fun Alan added a water jet system to provide some movement and at the same time provide some entertainment for the children.
