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 then converted into a durable, useful 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!

Horses for courses Of course we sell raised bed kits for people who want the simplicity of an off-the-peg solution, but people like Ken will always want [...]

They are a sociable group too, regularly dropping for tea and sharing a vegetarian lunch at their brand new, all-weather recycled plastic Todmorden picnic table. At the end of [...]

Made from British Recycled Plastic.

Not part of the plastic waste problem Our recycled plastic furniture, lumber and raised beds are robust, they don’t rot or require any maintenance other than a wipe once in a while. They withstand the worst of the weather and once installed can simply be forgotten about. One thing we’re not very good at shouting about is the fact that we use British recycled plastic to make our products. To a large [...]

Huw’s Plan to Grow a Gift

Not everyone understands why we get excited about turning other people's waste plastic into new things, but whenever we need a way to illustrate it to someone, we'll show them this guy. Helping people create wonderful things with minimal resources is at the heart of what we do, and Huw's Nursery is definitely a wonderful thing. If you're not already familiar with his 21st-Century-Titchmarsh approach to gardening and, more importantly, helping others [...]
