Episode one: Chandler's Ford
This table which is also a pond is the ultimate garden accessory. We chose it because
it enabled us to have a pond and a table in a small garden. It seats 6 people and has removable covers over the pond - to prevent dropping things in the pond when dining. There’s even a handy champagne holder to keep your bubbly cool in it. It comes with a built in pond pump, filter and UV to ensure healthy water for your fish. There are feature lights for the evenings and all of the electrics just plug straight in – a really simple idea. It’s made from Iroko wood with a parasol holder in the middle and is going to be a talking point in Louise’s garden for years to come.
It retails at £2500 including delivery and 1 year warranty.

Lazylawn is artificial grass that is perfect for a low maintenance garden. We chose the Lazy Lawn Signature because it is a brand new product made with an exclusive memory yarn technology that enables the product to recover after activity. Louise’s son, Ben, can play out in the garden year round without either getting muddy or flattening the artificial grass. If you look at the grass closely you will find that they have gone to great detail in making each blade of grass look real…there’s even yellowing blades in the lawn to give it the authentic look. It’s easy to install and with no mowing or watering, it’s the ideal solution for Louise’s garden.
Lazylawn retails at 23.95 & VAT per square metre and can also be professionally fitted.

Bradstone Granite Paving
The paving in this garden is natural granite which is a fabulous natural product. We chose it for its stylish, clean cut look in the garden. For contemporary minimalist style with maximum effect, natural granite paving is hard to beat. The colour, straight machine cut edges and textured top surface provide a dramatic background to architectural plants. We chose to have a light silver colour to keep the paved area bright.We used mainly 2 sizes of paving – 600 x 600mm and 600 x 300mm to keep the design simple, striking and to give the illusion of a larger space.

These red planters make a real design statement in the garden. We chose them
because the geometric design suits the clean lines of Louise’s garden and planting. A contemporary high gloss red finish to them, means that they really stand out. These top quality fibreglass planters have a special gel coat making them very hard wearing, this finish means the colour runs all the way through the 2mm thick gel finish. Even if it gets scratched, the colour will be mainatained. Fibreglass planters are lightweight, frost proof, tough and non corrosive which means they will remain looking
good for years. We have complimented them by planting simple box balls.
The small red planters retail at £54.95 each and the tall ones at £84.95 each
