We are enjoying running the builder’s yard come garden centre. We are supplying many tradesmen in & around the area now. Our aim is to now attract the domestic customer. We are confident that we have something unique to offer – sourcing individual pieces: from statues, to anchors, retro children’s swings…to give a garden that special ‘pizzazz’! For example….

  3. Sandpit – Trimdon Grange Infant & Nursery School

    We have loved this recent sandpit job from start to finish..from the design to the physical work itself & how it has evolved from the original design…eg: turning the outside of the sandpit into a track for the children to ride bikes etc around, & adding finishing touches to the play area such as a child’s water feature. With this job, safety & inclusion of all children were huge considerations – hence making the sandpit totally level with the surrounding area to avoid any falls & make it accessible for wheel chairs. I hope all the children enjoy this when we leave (though they might have enjoyed beeping the horn in our work van & sitting in the digger more haha!).

  5. Flower & Vegatable Beds Newton Hall

    IMG_3156Last week a young couple from Newton Hall Durham anted some flower beds in their front garden, as well as a generally more aesthetically pleasing look. The garden was just grass with a few plant pots. We used railway sleepers to create a rustic look for the flower beds, & for protection in the winter as they give depth. We added bark to a previously weed filled area – & bordered the bed with blue slate. For an affordable & quick transformation, this is certainly a good option…

    ” Our garden looks so much better, after just a day of work & at a cost that suited us. We are thrilled with the look of the flower beds & intend to plant some vegetables – the railway sleepers is a fab look. The bark suits us too as we don’t really want to be planting extra plants in that area. Thanks guys!”

  6. Snow Packages In County Durham….

    This week we are ordering our salt & grit for customers wishing to be included in a personalised SNOW PACKAGE to help you through the winter season. The basics of this package is snow clearance & gritting as often as needed. However, we will tailor the package to suit the needs of your home or business; eg: extra ‘home time’ clearances for nurseries & schools… Please do not hesitate to get in touch for more details or for a free quotation.

    ” I work for a private nursery in Durham City Centre – the bank leading up to the nursery is lethal in the ice (this is the parents access to drop children off plus staff access). Last year AA Gardening Services bent over backwards to provide us with a cleared & fully gritted bank at opening & closing times plus for extra pick up times throughout the day. We could not have functioned without this during the heavy snow & ice. ”

    This is a recent paving & turfing job. The customer wanted the entire garden landscaped with a combination of paving for furniture & potted plants to stand on & a softer grassed area for children to play.
