Garden Suppliers

The beautiful Rowlinson 'Gainsborough' gazebo kit.

The garden suppliers listed below provide a wide range of products; some specialising in a particular type of item, such as garden structures, pond equipment etc.; others having a wider range of landscaping products for sale.

Be sure to look out for bargains, which can be both seasonal and out-of-season offers. Some of these you can find quickly by going to my Fantastic Offers page.

When buying for my design business, I have used many of these  companies. Each one has its own strengths, either in a particular range of items it supplies, or because it is very cost effective.

Do look out for the gems that can be found on what we might consider bargain sites, where the product is great quality only for a fraction of the price you might expect to pay!
