3 years ago the WoodBlocX team collaborated with Cath and the Edinburgh Botanic Gardens Education team to bring their vegetable gardens to life. We helped them build an area of six raised beds for the wide variety of education programs Cath and the team offer. These cover everything from young nursery groups all the way through to adult groups, and have been put to good use over the years with a wide variety of crops grown across the beds. We had the pleasure of catching up with Cath and Pilrig Park School pupils to see just what they have been doing with the WoodBlocX.

A new garden design – or a new determination to transform the garden – can be a daunting prospect. Caitlin McLaughlin (RHS young designer of the year 2016), gives us her take on what makes a successful garden design!
Our friend Caitlin McLaughlin had a great Chelsea show this year, with her co-designed garden for Hilliers winning them yet another Gold Medal! If this garden inspires you to get out into the Garden.. then watch our other short videos from Chelsea and make the most of your Garden.
The garden, put together by the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) and The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL), is run in conjunction with Peter Seabrook and The Sun and is a celebration of Seabrook's 40 years working at the newspaper. APL member Bowood Landscapes has helped to build the garden, which features ideas and inspiration from a typical modest suburban back garden, and celebrates and promotes the the garden and landscape industry in the UK.
RHS Chelsea is the world’s most prestigious flower show, and this year didn't disappoint with one of the widest variety of gardens and new plant specimens for many years. We were there, showcasing our WoodBlocX raised beds within the 40 Sunbury Road Garden, but took some time out to get out and explore the best of what the show had to offer.
At WoodBlocX we are pleased to introduce our Raised Bed and Planter online calculator tool: https://www.woodblocx.co.uk/raised-beds This handy little gadget allows you to order a custom planter in what ever size you require online today.

Building benches, seats, tables and chairs has been part of the WoodBlocX offering since its inception back in 2001. Initially we developed a planter & bench combination, the idea being that those who were less able could use the bench as an aide to their gardening work. From there things have developed dramatically. We have worked on projects nationwide adding seating solutions to a number of Unite Student accommodation builds, new home development sites as well as public gardens and spaces.
Like Lego for your garden, WoodBlocX is a unique product for creating almost any structure you could want in a garden. Raised beds, planters, retaining walls, ponds, edging, seats and more. WoodBlocX lets you build anything, well just about anything for your garden. Whatever you want to build in your garden, build it with WoodBlocX.
