Ready for the coming season - Unreal Gardens officially launched on March 1st ready for the Spring season.
Unreal Gardens Specialise in supplying to both the trade and the general public, a wide range of low maintenance & artificial garden & landscape products specifically aimed at those people who love their garden but hate the work involved. The kind of people who dream about having a beautiful garden no matter how large or small that will add that little bit of extra to their homes. Some people just aren't cut out for gardening, I know because I'm one of them, and the mess that the builders left when they moved out with the bits of pipe poking out here and the lumps of concrete there are all that remains. But really it doesn't have to be that way, Unreal Gardens are here to help you create that visually fabulous and funtional, low maintenance garden which not only reduces the maintenance required to keep your garden the way you want it, but it will also add value to your house too.
So Spring is definitely around the corner (or so the weather men say) and in fairness we've already seen the Crocus' pushing their heads through and the Daffodils, the grass is starting to grow and some of the tree's are starting to bud and last weekend I succombed to the temptation to get cracking in the garden too. I often site looking out the patio doors across the garden and what seems to have been an incredibly long winter this year has certainly taken its toll on our garden. We had two huge Cordyline's which due to the snow we had through December kicked the bucket so they were the first to go. I now have two holes where they once lived which I feel will be just right for some of our stunning Artificial Bay Laurels.
So instant improvement made with the dead ones gone, it simply drew attention to how grubby and dirty the decking had got because of all the water and lack of sun. Instead of that nice deck brown colour the whole area just looked green and awful. So out came the pressure washer (or rather back it came from the neighbours) and I set about getting the grime and moss deposited throughout the winter washed away. Six hours I was at it and while it was wet I have to say it looked like quite a good job had been done - but as soon as it dried it looked really bad kind of resembling an old disused pier at the seaside. Not very nice at all - Wait for it, yes you've got it - Unreal Gardens have a solution for all this unnecessary work. We will offer a range of what is commonly known as Composite decking (call or email us for more details) which give the look of wood but without all the hard work and maintenance of keeping it, and it looks as good in years to come as the day it was installed.
Composite decking is essentially a product which is made from waste materials otherwise destined for landfill. Primarilly it is made of wood fibres and waste plastics and then coloured and patterned to give the look of real timber. So not only do these product give you reduced maintenance benefits, they also mean you are doing your bit for the environment too.
So that will be one of the projects outlined for the Unreal Residence once the business is stable this spring/summer - tear up all the old wooden decking and replace it with maintenance free composite decking. Another bonus is we will be able to still use the original joists so all the structure won't need redoing, kind of like relaying new floorboards.
So project no1 outlined for this year and subsequent others also in the pipeline such as a new lawn in the front garden, a patch of lawn in the back garden, fencing to replace the list goes on but my plan is to write about these here and we'll also probably feature some of our customers gardens too as we go along.
So I'll sign off for now and wish you all a good weekend, and lookforward to blogging again soon.
