With the recent hot weather encouraging everyone out into the garden and the threat of frost disappearing during May, David Coton is in no doubt that this is going to be a busy month.
An Oase Stone Liner is the ideal way to disguise the edge of your pond. As David Coton found out, this high quality product provides a quick and easy solution if you want a pond that has a completely natural appearance.
A robust decorative liner which is watertight and coated with real pebbles for a realistic and very natural look, the Oase Stone Liner is the perfect way to cover the gap between the edge of your pond and the surface of the water.
It's suitable for use under or out of the pond water, will survive for many years, and can also be used for other applications such as a pathway or, combined with a normal liner, to create a decortive watercourse. The underside is fleece lined so that, if placed over soil, weeds are not going to grow through.
We even had one customer who purchased the widest size for his duck pond to give the ducks something to grip onto when getting in and out, as they were slipping on the traditional liner and disappearing back into the pond..
Available only in the sand colour which is shown, Oase currently produce Stone Liner in four widths and these are: 0.4 metre (1ft 3ins), 0.6 metre (1ft 11ins), 1 metre (3ft 3ins) and 1.2 metres (3ft 9ins) wide. All of these rolls are 0.5mm thick. We sell our Oase Stone Liner per running metre and half metre lengths are also available for those who only need a small amount.
The Oase Stone Liner is guaranteed for three years and we recommend that it should be bonded to your PVC or rubber liner using Oase's Uni-Fix.
David Coton suggests that there are plenty of gardening jobs that need to be done in November, from why you shouldn't throw away your fallen leaves to how to take care of your vegetable patch.
In these uncertain times it's reassuring to know that Barlow Tyrie have been designing and manufacturing top quality teak furniture for nearly a century, and they have announced several new ranges to coincide with their one hundredth birthday.
I had never heard of Evika Greenhouses but when I walked into our annual Garden & Leisure Exhibition 2019 (GLEE) it was the only product I really saw. A brand new greenhouse brand is always going to get my attention but the sense that this was not only new, but different, kept my focus.
There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2019.
