Acorn have recently redesigned our rear garden installing a new patio and also re turfing. In addition, they removed a concrete wall along the side of the house which has made such a difference to the look and feel of the area. We are so happy with the results and can’t praise Acorn Landscaping enough. Ian and the team worked so hard in all weathers and did an amazing job! We really love our new garden. Many thanks to all at Acorn Landscaping.

Our lawn was transformed from an area of grass, paving slabs and an invasion of Mares Tail weeds, into a glorious array of coloured Indian Stone paving slabs. Absolutely stunning. Grateful thanks to Ian and his team of professional dedicated workers. Highly recommended. Mrs. Jp. Fishwick and family.

Just had 2 patio areas completed by this amazing team of guys. Turned up as expected and worked professionally and dilligently each day, even in pretty adverse weather. A pleasure to deal with right from the quotation stage and the attention to detail by Ian, Zak and Graham throughout the project was second to none. We will definately use this company again for any future garden work, and can highly reccomend them

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.

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.
