Bagged aggregates for your garden
Completing any home or garden improvements can be stressful, time-consuming and sometimes expensive. However, the sense of pride and that ‘YOU DID IT’ moment can make it all worthwhile.
If restoring the garden is part of your renovation plans, there are many elements to think about. For example, do you have the creativity to landscape the space yourself or will you be consulting a professional? How big is the area you have to work with? Do you require a range of different materials to achieve your desired look? And finally, what’s the budget you are working to?
All of these are important questions to answer before starting the project. In this article, we highlight some of the aggregates delivered in bags that may be of use if you are changing part of your garden or the exterior areas.
The all-important lawn
Do you dream of having the perfect lawn, like the ones you see on TV where the grass is the perfect shade of green and always free of weeds? Creating a show-stopping lawn is not as hard as you think and actually can be achieved fairly quickly.
If you can, it’s advised to start with a blank canvas, which could mean removing what is currently there and replacing with a new layer of topsoil that can be seeded or turfed.
At Avon Material Supplies, we offer a manufactured topsoil that is perfect for lawn restoration and makes a more affordable alternative to traditional topsoil. Our alternative topsoil can be delivered bagged or loose, whichever works best for you.
A suitable seating area
So, you’ve now got fresh grass, but the thought of ruining it with seating and tables is out of the question, therefore you will need an area away from the lawn for enjoying the sunshine and family BBQs.
This is when our other bagged aggregates may come in handy… whether it’s for creating a sub-base suitable for supporting decking or laying a decorative aggregate or shingle on pathways and seating areas.
Our ‘in stock’ bagged materials are mainly construction aggregates. However, if you require a decorative aggregate such as Cotswold chipping our associated company, AMS Nationwide can normally supply this within 1 – 2 days.
Other popular applications that our bagged aggregates are used within include fire pits and rockeries.
A driveway to be proud of
It’s likely to be the first part of your home that people will see, so don’t leave it looking shabby! Our aggregates in bulk bags are used frequently to transform driveways, with some people choosing them for the top ‘decorative’ layer or as part of the base layer. Popular aggregates you or your appointed contractor can trust us to deliver on time, include;
- Type 1 limestone
- Type 1 recycled
- 6F5 as crushed
- Building sand
- Sharp washed sand (for block paving)
- Crushed tarmac
The finishing touches
Your garden is so close to completion, but it’s those finishing touches that people will notice. Creating a simple flower bed is an easy way to make a big impact with splashes of colour and different textures.
Using our bagged topsoil alternative will give you a healthy base to your flower bed, which is ideal for planting in. Hopefully, you will have some left over from your lawn restoration, or alternatively, our tonne bulk bags start from just £36!
