Our recycled plastic raised beds, permeable paving, planters and lumber are made from 100% recycled mixed plastic and come in a variety of colours.  Mixed, British waste plastic has been diverted from land-fill, incineration and dumping abroad and converted into a durable material essential for any gardener. Our products neither degrade nor rot.  They don’t leach chemicals into soil and in the case of raised beds and planters can be dismantled if required.  If you’d like to use maintenance-free materials which enable you to put your energy into growing rather than upkeep, get in touch!
