  • Use WoodBlocX for edging, borders and bases

    Our modular system is ideal for building raised beds, planters, garden furniture, walls and steps and it can be used for a few other garden essentials including edging and kerbing and decking, shed and greenhouse bases too.

    The versatility of WoodBlocX means that all structures can be designed so that they are completely bespoke to your garden, whether it is completely flat or sloped, plus you can build them on soft surfaces including earth and grass or hard surfaces such as concrete, tarmac or paving.

    Edging, borders and kerbing

    Keep flower beds and borders from spilling onto pathways, protect vegetable patches and create beautiful pathways in front and rear gardens using our timber edging, kerbing and border options.

    There are lots of different edging options available on the market; plastic, metal, railway sleepers, wooden boards, brick and other manufactured stone, each has its benefits but WoodBlocX Garden Edging can really help your garden to take shape.

    Just like our other garden structures our edging, borders and kerbing is quick and easy to build, long lasting and requires no heavy lifting, its practical and attractive, the unique modular design means you can follow the contours of your garden, making it one of the best alternatives to railways sleepers available.

    Decking, shed and greenhouse bases

    WoodBlocX can be used to create a firm and level base for garden structures such as sheds, greenhouses and decking to sit on. The strong pressure treated blocks are made using the strongest part of the tree and are design to stand up to excessive weight and strain, so much so that it can be used for retaining walls, making them an ideal base material for large garden structures.

    Decking, shed and greenhouse bases built in shady areas can be affected by damp and algae growth therefore it is best to select a position in the garden that is dry and gets a good amount of sunlight.

    Working out the size of the base can be tricky especially if the area is sloped or has uneven ground, if you’re unsure or just need some help working everything out get in touch and our team will work with you to create a design that fits your garden and decking, greenhouse or shed perfectly.

  • Gardening for health and wellbeing

    We have been sharing lots of tips for detoxing your garden in 2019 and creating a healthy space to relax and grow because the garden is much more than an extension of your living space.

    Being outside in the fresh air with the sounds of insects humming and birds singing is one of the best kinds of escapism, whilst tending to the garden can help to take your mind off the stresses of everyday life.

    We have provided our timber raised beds for a number of public gardens designed by RHS ambassador and gold medal winner, Jekka McVicar , that place health and wellbeing at the centre of the design.

    St Mungos – The Quiet Garden, Notting Hill

    St Mungos is a homeless charity and one of the largest providers of outreach services to homeless people in the UK, as part of the charities.

    The Quiet Garden was created in partnership with the fragrance brand Jo Malone London as part of the Putting Down Roots project which aims to offer people a place to learn new skills and gain experience tending to the garden.

    Filled with fragrant flowers and herbs to stimulate the senses. The garden is a circular design centred around a tree that was already in place, with an archway for climbers to grow up and steps leading into it. It really is a beautiful space and a great initiative for the charity’s clients to experiences the benefits that gardening can bring.

    Malvern Health and Wellbeing Garden

    Launched at the RHS Malvern Spring Festival in 2017 Jekka McVicar unveiled the show’s first permanent garden which was designed in support of the Pathways charity, a work-focussed day service for adults with learning disabilities and difficulties.

    The design of the garden was inspired by the increasing need for reflection and escape from the stresses of modern life and seeks to preserve and share the vital knowledge of how horticulture and its associated therapies can help soothe the mind, body and soul.

    Featuring curves and a central seating area we were honoured to provide the materials to build the large wooden planters with seating built-in to our modular system.

    There is so much evidence to show that gardening really is beneficial to health and wellbeing and it doesn’t matter if you have a garden or not there are loads of opportunities to garden through community gardens and allotments.

    If you need some inspiration for your own garden head over to our inspiration section and see how our customers have used WoodBlocX raised beds, planters, seating, walls and ponds to create a garden they love.

  • Detox your garden in 2019

    January is the perfect time to make plans and simple changes that you will see the benefits of in the months to come, we’re not talking about the usual New Year fads of diets and exercise, not on this blog! We’re talking about detoxing your garden to create a healthier environment for relaxing and growing plants and veg.

    Swap petrol to electric

    Whilst petrol products including lawnmowers, strimmers and hedge trimmers are known to get the job done quicker and provide extra power, they’re heavy, smelly, noisy and need a lot of maintenance. There are some great battery and electric options available some that even offer the same power as petrol and are well worth researching next time you need to buy one.

    Switch plastic for terracotta and wood

    If you’ve got a lot of plastic plant pots in your garden slowly start swapping them for alternative options such as terracotta or wooden planters, pots and containers made from these materials are more expensive than the plastic versions so keep your eyes peeled for garden centre sales, where you could snap up some bargains...make sure you recycle the plastic pots where possible.

    Use fewer chemicals

    There will always be pests in the garden, so to reduce the use of your bug killer spray or treatment create little habitats for beneficial wildlife such as bug houses, they’re fun to make yourself or you can buy them. The more beneficial creatures that you can encourage to your garden the more aphids, white fly and black fly will get eaten! If you need to use a bug killer choose one that is neonicotinoid free which is better for bees.

    Beds and borders

    Using railway sleepers for raised beds can be detrimental to the health of your garden, they tend to be treated with chemicals that can leach into the soil, which isn't ideal if you're growing fruit and vegetables. Flimsy wooden boards will rot quickly and need to be replaced regularly. WoodBlocX raised beds are not treated with any nasty chemicals nor will they need any treatments or maintenance to keep them looking good, they offer a longlasting planting solution made from sustainable materials.

    Compost

    Save money on bags of compost and start making your own, this isn’t a quick fix though, if you start recycling your vegetable peelings, tea bags, egg boxes, newspapers and garden waste now into a small compost heap you may be able to start using it within six months to a year. However, you will reduce the amount of waste you throw away and by putting it back into the garden you will provide some great nutrients for the soil.
