Highly recommend. From initial enquiry, they were prompt and helpful in their responses. A very thorough site visit was undertaken prior to works commencing. The lads who came to do the work were friendly, polite and hard workers. Wouldn't hesitate to use again.

I would highly recommend the team from Acorn Landscapes when considering revamping your garden, they provided advice and support including CAD drawings to help with the design of our garden. Graham and Zack were professional and friendly and had an excellent attention to detail. Some before and after photos.

Used Acorn for a garden redesign. They've done exceptional work and the garden looks fantastic. The group that came to do all the landscaping were great, and seemed to really be passionate about doing it. Very impressed with the garden and the company.

We recently moved into a new build and wanted a total garden makeover. We needed someone who could both help with the design and complete the work. We found Acorn Landscaping from a Google search and decided to commission them to do the work following an initial site visit and quotation, which was broadly comparable to other quotes we had obtained. From start to finish, we have been delighted with the professional and high quality service they have provided. David was extremely helpful and patient with the design service (despite us making multiple changes) and the 3D imagery he provided was great in allowing us to get a feel for what the end product would look like. The work was booked to start in late July and, despite recent poor weather, Ian and his team turned up as planned and got to work straight away. They always rang the doorbell in the morning to let us know they were here and explained what they were doing that day. They were courteous, polite and nothing was ever a problem. The whole build process took just over two weeks to complete, which was slightly quicker than originally anticipated. They did a thorough clean up afterwards and left everything spotless. Overall, we were very impressed with the quality of workmanship and are extremely pleased with the finished product. We would certainly recommend Acorn Landscaping to anyone in the Preston area who is looking for garden design and landscaping services.

We used Acorn for our new patio. David is very responsive by email and quickly gave us a quote and a design after we gave him our ideas. We are very pleased with the work carried out by Terry and the team. Terry kept us informed of developments each day and we felt fully consulted about everything. The job took longer than anticipated due to the amount of soil excavated to enable to patio to be lowered to its original level. Terry and team are very polite, professional and tidy and even warned our neighbours about the noise and mess. We would highly recommend Acorn Landscapes. Our new patio looks fantastic.

A guide to choosing the right shed

When you are choosing a shed for your garden, the first thing you need to know is what type of shed will suit your needs. There are three main types of sheds to choose from: wooden, plastic and metal.

Wooden sheds are usually made out of pine or spruce wood. They can be painted or oiled, depending on the project. However, they do not last that long if left untreated. They are relatively easy to care for and can be decorated into any type of design you like.

Wooden sheds need to be cared for regularly and thoroughly because they can eventually rot and warp.

Metal sheds are made of steel or aluminium. They are very sturdy, making them great for outdoor storage. Metal sheds do not need to be treated or painted in any way, they are ready for functionality once purchased.

One downside is that metal sheds can become extremely hot in the sun and can cause a fire hazard if stored with chemicals.

Plastic sheds are usually made of PVC or solid plastic. They are an affordable option, however they are easy to break into and not very sturdy. Plastic sheds can fade in overtime in the sunlight so make sure to by a UV resistant shed.

A good garden shed will need to suit your needs both now and a few years down the line so its a good idea to plan ahead and buy the correct size of shed.

The right size of shed for you will depend on how you use it, what your needs are and how much storage space you need.

Its a good idea to think about all the thins you would put in a shed and even lay them out to see how much space with take up.

Windows, shelves and work tops and just some of the choices you should make when buying a shed.

Windows can be a great source of light, however they also make the shed more vulnerable to break ins.

Work tops are a good idea as it allows you to use your shed as a workshop or extra storage space.

Shelving units inside the shed allow you to store a variety of items from small gardening tools all the way to your bikes.

Break ins are an unfortunate reality in some areas and if you are storing a nice bike or any expensive machinery in the shed, this is something you need to think about. To make your shed as secure as possible ,either buy padlocks, chains or a combination padlock

You can also install security lighting or a camera system to help keep your shed safe.

A shed needs a solid foundation to sit on. If you have a patio this can be a great ready made base for your shed.

If you need to install a new shed there are 3 main types of base:

  1. Concrete
  2. Paving
  3. Gravel (With stabilisation grids)

Concrete is the most sturdy of all these bases and the best value for money. It can simply poured into a frame and screed off to leave you with a stable base in 48 hours.

Paving and gravel bases both give you a sturdy base and are good value for money. They require more work as they first need to be laid on level ground and each stone has to be laid down one by one.

It is important that the shed floor is also water resistant as water can damage your tools and garden equipment if not protected against, especially if you have a worktop installed in the shed.
