I watch the Flower show at Chelsea perhaps all for the wrong reasons, I look for the timber and how it’s designed into the structure of the garden. The quality, the cut, the fixing and the many techniques as to how it is used…

GCM 12 GDL Professional Bosch Mitre Saw with GTA 2500 W Professional Stand
I would normally comment upon pros and cons of a new piece of equipment, in this case there is simply no need, only pro’s here. This saw is “off the scale” in terms of price, usability and most importantly accuracy. We have started using this saw on site this week and it is by far the best saw we have ever used (or so my guys have said), there was one other question “when can we replace the other saw”… I am not…Continue

For this new garden design we had to consider the exact requirements of the client. In most cases a brief has a certain amount of poetic licence; this compared to the norm was not at all what the clients expected.
