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.
New products are the lifeblood of many industries and it’s no different in the gardening sector and most of us above a certain age will know the Rubbermaid brand well, particularly if you have ever been in the cleaning industry.
GLEE is the garden retail industry's annual show at the NEC in Birmingham. David Coton took the opportunity to visit this year's event to catch up on the news, visit current/potential suppliers and evaluate new products we would like to offer on GardenSite in the coming year.
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.
Although the growing season is slowly coming to an end, David Coton can suggest quite a few jobs that need to be done over the next few weeks, helping you make the most of what's left of summer and preparing for the arrival of autumn.
