Wildflower turf – Tillers Turf
We wanted Roisin’s garden to have a natural feel, plus provide colour and attract wildlife. Wildflower turf is the perfect answer.
It enhances the biodiversity value by attracting a wide range of pollinators. It helps to re-establish wildflower species under threat.
Creates an immediate visual effect and is cost effective and low maintenance – needing cutting back only once a year in August.
Tillers Turf provide fantastic wildflower turf – the species in their turf have been specially selected to provide colour and structure from early spring through to mid-autumn. The wildflowers and grasses are grown on moisture retentive, recycled carpet fibre mat which acts as a mulch to suppress weeds. This system allows them to produce high quality, balanced mixtures of species, in a mature form, ready to be placed on site.
Contemporary Vogue Panel – Grange Fencing
Roisin needed a fence at the bottom of her garden because there wasn’t one. Grange Fencing’s Contemporary Vogue Panel is very attractive and contemporary, however it also blends in harmoniously.
It is constructed with a fully Mortise and Tenon jointed frame and slats on both sides for ultimate privacy making it their most substantial and durable panel yet. It also means that there is no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ side to the panel – great news!
The slats are planed and rounded for a premium look and feel. This panel is pressure-treated for protection against wood rot. You can use this fencing with with the Contemporary Arch, Arbour and Planter collection for a co-ordinated look. There is a matching gate available, which we used at the front.
Contemporary Vogue Panel retails from £70.99
Castlewood Swing Set & Slide – TP Toys
Little Ivy really wanted a play tower with swings and a slide. The Castlewood Swing Set and Slide is perfect for her. It features a fireman’s pole, Castlewood Den Pack, ladder leading to play platform with roof and shaded play area at base – perfect for a sandpit. The Double Swing Arm comes with two Deluxe Swing Seats, with the Tower complete with a Crazywavy Slide for even more fun!
he Castlewood Tower is made from kiln dried, pressure treated wood. This means the environmentally friendly preservative has penetrated deep into the centre of the wood rather than being simply applied to the surface of the wood. You can apply a water based stain to the Castlewood each year if you wish to for aesthetic reasons, but it is not necessary to apply a surface stain to maintain Castlewood’s excellent rot resistant properties and its performance guarantee.
The six sided shape provides lots of entry and exit points for great play value and fun activity. A ladder leads to a spacious covered platform and the shaded play area with bench seats at the base is ideal for a sandpit.

The machine sawn edges and calibrated 20mm thickness, present a ’tile’ like quality to the paving facilitating easier laying, especially when using it as an internal flooring.
