Grange Urban Screens And Pergola On Love Your Garden

In the second episode of the new series, the Love Your Garden team chose two Grange products to help transform the life of a disabled child in Nottingham. Nathan James Dodd saw how the family's garden changed from a neglected space to become a fully accessible area that's full of interest.

Tilly is a young girl from Nottingham who is disabled following a domestic accident six years ago. Due to the amount of time that has to be spent looking after her, the family garden had become neglected and also a dumping ground for building materials following the construction of an extension.

Asked what she most wanted in the garden, the answer was a trampoline and a little house. Alan Titchmarsh and the team then set about reshaping the garden to include these features and much more.

Centre stage was a red and white summer house. It gave the garden personality and could be used in a number of ways including somewhere to eat or play in bad weather.

Pergola And Urban Screens

Next to it, a Grange Pergola was installed made from pressure treated wood with sturdy uprights and cross bearers. Part of an extensive range of pergolas, it provides a shaded area where children can play outside but away from the damaging glare of intense sunlight.

A football pitch was laid at the bottom of the garden using artificial grass. Separating the pitch from the other play areas, including the trampoline that was built over a pit, are Grange Urban Screens.

The panels have different sized slats and are part of their new 'Urban Range' that includes several complementary landscaping products, Giving the garden a contemporary feel, the urban panels are preferable to a solid fence as the children can still be seen playing and parents can keep an eye on them.

Finally, a set of outdoor furniture was introduced to bring the comfort of the home out into the garden, There's now an impressive range of all weather sofas, tables and chairs to choose from, made from quality materials that are UV resistant and do not deteriorate. This fabulous furniture has the effect of extending your lounge into the garden.

Completely safe, Tilly's garden is now an attractive space with hard and soft landscaping that can be enjoyed by children of all ages as well as adults.
