Cut to size and edged these slabs make particularly attractive steps and cills and we also stock ‘rustic’ monliths up to 2metres high.

Their garden furniture range is almost inexhaustible and includes slate planters (stock sizes and made to measure), slate tables can be circular, hexagonal, rectangular, square (dining or coffee height), whilst slate benches are available in a variety of lengths (with or without backrest).

Fernando G Fernando Gonzalez Garden Design is an award-winning practice with a reputation for making gardens that are artworks in themselves, whilst pushing the boundaries of conventional design by employing state-of-the-art technologies and manufacturing processes. In 2013, FGGD was named one of the 50 Most Innovative Practices across the Globe by Digital Landscape Architecture Now. At the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013 Fernando Gonzalez was awarded a Silver-Gilt medal for the garden called ‘ The Sound of Silence ‘. Fernando describes the garden, saying “It is a different and contemporary view of the traditional Zen garden , an abstracted small landscape that captures the essence of nature by contrasting opposing elements – the silence of the mountains made from Hi-Macs natural acrylic stone, the elegance and serenity of the bonsai and the sea made of gravel all contribute to the sense of calm and aesthetic pleasure. These elements provide clues in search for the garden’s deeper significance. Fernando is one of the featured speakers at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

The Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) was formed to try and raise and maintain standards in the industry and to help consumers make an informed choice in a market place that is susceptible to problems. Formed in 1995, the APL, which operates as a Specialist Group of the Horticultural Trades Association, represents landscapers who have met a required standard of professionalism. Members of the Association are registered with the government endorsed TrustMark Scheme and are annually inspected and agree to follow a customer charter with clients. All APL members also hold the appropriate insurance and have traded for a minimum of two years. The APL provides homeowners with an even greater choice when selecting a landscaper. As a customer, you can feel confident that the APL landscaper you have chosen has met prescribed professional standards. The APL have a close partnership with the RHS and are responsible for the ‘Low Cost, High Impact’ gardens at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. The category was introduced to the show for the first time last year providing APL members with an exclusive opportunity to showcase their work. The gardens showcase a practical approach which also provides a wow factor. The aim is that visitors will be able to recreate the garden design, based on a fixed budget for hard landscaping, plant material and labour. This ‘Low Cost, High Impact’ concept has been so successful, it has also been rolled out to RHS Flower Show Tatton Park. The APL also host regular cluster group meetings around the country. These meetings offer members networking opportunities and sharing of ideas and best practice in the industry through the course of the year. The Association of Professional Landscapers also have designated website with an easy-to-use map of the UK to help you find a contractor near you. The APL is looking forward to being at LANDSCAPE again this year, which provides a great environment and opportunity to discuss with potential new members and consumers about the benefits of membership and of using an APL registered contractor. Why not come along and say hello.

Ivan Black

See us at LANDSCAPE Ivan Black was born in London in 1972, he works predominantly in the medium of kinetic sculpture. His interest in sculpture began at an early age and motion quickly became central to his work; adding as he saw it another dimension of complexity and interest to his experiments. An inherent problem solver, he spent his early years amassing multi disciplinary skills in the pursuit of the means to realise his ambitious ideas. Ivan uses his unique methodology to create kinetic works that mutate upon the introduction of energy. The repetition of identical elements is a recurrent theme in his work, by this means he builds complex fluid structures. Each work is a section of a potentially continuous sequence, generated in form by the application of systematic rules to the geometry. Ivan takes inspiration for his designs from iconic natural forms, combining mathematical concepts and the pioneering spirit of the British engineer to create a synergy between science, art and technology.

His meticulously engineered and seamlessly integrated mechanisms are central to the behaviour and appeal of his work. Tending towards the minimalist in design, the movement is allowed to take centre stage. His work has been widely exhibited including at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice and The Cass Foundation Sculpture Park, Interart Sculpture Park in the Netherlands, Palmyra Sculpture Centre Mallorca and the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden. He is a regular exhibitor at the Kinetica Art Fair and his work is included in many significant private collections. Ivan Black will be presenting a new range of hanging and free standing wind powered kinetic sculptures at this year’s LANDSCAPE show. The works rotate gently in the wind creating striking and mesmerizing centrepieces for gardens and outdoor spaces.

The Guild of Master Craftsmen The Guild of Master Craftsmen is the UK’s most established trade association representing skilled tradesmen who strive for excellence in workmanship.

MCM When it comes to needing soil, you don’t get more demanding than the needs of the critically endangered Sumatran tiger. With only an estimated 400 left in the wild, the Tiger habitat at the ZSL London Zoo had to pull out all the stops to make their new enclosure suitable for our furry friends. Using Tru-Grow soil from MCM, the ZSL expert horticulturalists could carefully mimic the tropical foliage of the island of Sumatra.

The majority of members are modern day craftsmen including landscape designers, garden designers, interior designers, paving contractors, decking companies and those providing gardening services. Our search engine - www.findacraftsman. com – is promoted nationally throughout the year, and is the only place to list members of The Guild of Master Craftsmen exclusively. The Guild of Master Craftsmen are proud to support LANDSCAPE and look forward to welcoming their members to the show this September in Battersea Park.

Tru grow was perfect for this as it is sand based and when mixed with PAS 100 compost it made it lightweight and easy to use. With the rigorous testing done, everyone is now happy that the tigers, Jae Jae and his mate Melati, will have a lovely new home to settle into. Other prestigious projects that we have used Tru Grow include the Olympic park redevelopment at Stratford and a famous film studio in Watford. If you have any questions or would like to come have a look at this amazing soil then visit MCM at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Judith Hobbs Judith’s pots create dramatic forms for the contemporary house and garden, drawing on traditions as diverse as Minoan Crete and Art Deco, and inspired by the dramatic qualities of light and shadow in the Mediterranean and North Africa. Judith uses a range of techniques; including throwing and coiling to produce unique handmade pieces with bold geometric designs and strong simple shapes. The resulting work is dynamic and striking. “I enjoy the interplay of strong clear lines and edges and each pot that I make feels like an exploration of this.� She also makes lizards and geckos, many combined with pots, which have unusual vibrancy and a lifelike quality, they bring an element of the unexpected, the unpredictable to the garden. Judith was a student on the Harrow Studio Pottery course from 1983 until 1985. She now lives and works in Bristol in a purpose built studio in her garden. She is a regular exhibitor at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Over many years of making pottery and ceramics her ideas have shifted in focus and emphasis but the core influences are unchanged: open spaces, straightforward shapes, a simple ceramic palette crisp lines and bold patterns.

See us at LANDSCAPE Deep Root Partners is a leading urban landscape products and ecosystem services supplier whose mission is to integrate green utilities such as trees, soil and storm-water in to the built environment. The Silva Cell is a specialized tool to meet sustainability goals and improve the ecological function of urban sites through the integration of large tree growth and on-site storm-water management. The modular Silva Cells stack to create customized void spaces beneath paving (footpaths , plazas, etc.) that is then filled with soil. This soil provides unlimited rooting space for trees, enabling them to grow large and improving canopy cover without disrupting surrounding utilities. The same soil volume simultaneously acts as on-site storm-water management, significantly reducing non-point source pollution and controlling the rate, volume, and quality of water runoff. By integrating trees, soil, and stormwater, the Silva Cell improves sustainable site design. It is ideal for use in cities and towns and meets engineering and loading standards with no loss of structural hard landscape integrity.

Lynda Hukins British wildlife is her dominant theme although in recent years she has created abstract sculptures. Many of her wildlife bronzes hint at abstraction in their simplicity of form, giving them a contemporary character. Lynda is drawn to the strength and movement she finds in her subjects and uses a strong definition of line to draw the eye to the sculpture, and express these essential qualities. Samples of Linda’s work will be available for viewing at LANDSCAPE in Battersea Park this September.


The natural environment, the coastal shoreline and the beauty of the Weald countryside in Kent where she lives inspire Lynda Hukins’ work.

Gin Garden


A feature at this years LANDSCAPE show will be “Gin Garden”. A travelling, unexpected bar which you will often find across London, popping up in unexpected spaces, mixing and serving drinks.

They work with distilleries, complementing the botanicals of their unique gin with local herbs, fruits and flowers and they source as many ingredients as possible from local artisan producers and small businesses. The drinks are unique to the area they are created in. The Gin Garden can come to your space and make your location blossom into a decorative scenic background. They can “bring a strip of velvety turf, with a hedge of lilac or red may, or whatever happens to be in season, as a background, one or two cherry trees in blossom, and clumps of heavily-flowered rhododendrons filling in the odd corners; in the foreground you have a blaze of carnations or Shirley poppies, or tiger lilies in full bloom.” Gin Garden love learning about the botanicals in gin and about the fruit, flowers, herbs and spices that they use to make their drinks. They know lots of other people do too. So whether you are interested in how to grow chocolate mint, how to mix a drink using preserved plums or the health benefits the ginger in your hot toddy could bring you, one of their team should be able to tell you, and if they don’t - they know someone who does. Come and visit them for a taste of LANDSCAPE at the show this September.

Andrian Melka


Andrian Melka is a figurative sculptor working with different materials like marble, stone and bronze. The majority of his works have been commissioned by private clients in Uk and USA on which he has tried to develop and refine his own style. Working directly on the stone block without the need for detailed models make his work more challenging but ultimately more satisfying Andrian says.

In 2008 he was honoured to receive a QEST scholarship to study different methods of working in marble. He spent a month at Franco Cervietti’s workshop in Italy working alongside old marble masters. In 2010 he created a statue of The Medici Venus for Chiswick House gardens collaborating with English Heritage. One of his major involvements were in the project for recreating The Spirit of the Ocean Fountain for Santa Barbara Court House a historical building. Together with a team of 5 other carvers the fountain was finished in 7 months. Andrian is recognised for his skills in the sympathetic restoration of antique sculptures. Currently he is working on the restoration of the Grinling Gibbons Memorial of Archbishop Sterne which resides in York Minster and he will be featured on the QEST stand at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park, London.

Zoë Cull designs and makes functional and ornamental works in natural stone. Following two years’ training in the traditional skills and techniques of architectural masonry and carving, a grant from the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust in 2003 enabled her to spend short periods of apprenticeship with five of the country’s leading letter-cutters. She subsequently set up a workshop with partner, Alex Evans, with whom she collaborates under the name Stoneform. Aided by a Crafts Council Development Award in 2006, Zoë worked to establish a body of creative work, leading to a diverse and interesting variety of private, corporate and public commissions. These include a suite of liturgical furniture for the Church of St Anthony of Padua in Radlett, Herts; a trio of bench seats for Salisbury District Hospital; a large sculptural feature for David Wilson Homes in Bristol and a landscaped space incorporating carved paving and seating at Poole Crematorium, Dorset. She has exhibited widely, including in selected shows at West Dean (‘Art and Memory’), Roche Court (‘Riddles’) and The Garden Gallery.

Zoë Cull

Recently, Zoë has become interested in using other materials in association with stone, and also in the further integration of her work with its surroundings through the use of hard and soft landscaping. She welcomes all opportunities, no matter how big or small, and will apply herself as dedicatedly to the carving of a simple house name as to the undertaking of a complex and large-scale artwork. See her on the QEST demonstration area at LANDSCAPE this September.

Rothfuss More than 25 years ago, when the Rothfuss company introduced spot-welded gabions to the German market they were captivated by the idea of using durable, galvanized screen-mats to build retaining walls out of rock or other natural materials. The large-dimensioned metal baskets, called gabions, facilitate the engineering of firm structures by providing a supporting framework to nature. Playing the role of the pioneer of the industry, Rothfuss continued to research and develop new areas of applications, from facade greening to fencing gabions, by transforming their creative concepts into practical solutions. Rothfuss, based next to Stuttgart, Germany, is a medium-sized family enterprise manufacturing products out of steel wire, for more than 160 years, and meanwhile servicing many European markets. The company is guided by the spirit of invention, innovation and constant improvement, which is the typical mentality of Southwestern Germany, with Porsche, Mercedes and Bosch as the most prominent representatives of this region. Visit us at LANDSCAPE this September and see the range of products we have and how we might best help your next project.

Driven by the two founding partners, the ethos for the company has always been based in sound construction methods, and quality design & finish. And as the consultation and preliminary design service is free, there’s nothing to lose by arranging a visit. Come along and talk to us at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park, London.

The Pot Company Round Wood Trading is set to continue its recent, rapid expansion after acquiring the Pot Company, one of its long-standing suppliers. The provider of Home & Garden Features, has historically specialised in large scale cast iron products, including benches, urns and lamp posts. Over recent years, however, they have become increasingly active in the pot and planter market, with a focus on large scale, quality models well suited to the landscape market. A significant portion of market share, both trade and retail, has been won in this time through effective pricing and the development of supply chains. Whilst many products have been sourced from a number of international partners, a key relationship was established with the long running ‘Pot Company,’ based just 15 miles away in Lamberhurst, Kent.


As such, when Pot Company owner Kevin McMahon made the decision to retire recently, it seemed a natural fit for the two companies to open a dialogue. Discussions reached a successful and rapid conclusion that has facilitated a seamless and smooth transition. The Pot Company has been sourcing garden planters from around the world for almost 30 years. This depth of experience has allowed them to develop a unique and varied range featuring consistently popular design themes and materials with proven durability. A selection of their range will be available to see at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.

Shade Solutions


Shade Solutions is Kemp Sail’s fabric and textiles shade sail and garden canopy division. They specialise in designing and manufacturing standard and bespoke garden shade sails, and in particular, working with landscape contractors and outdoor architects, to design, incorporate and implement, contemporary outdoor shaded or sheltered fabric covered areas. These may be in either domestic or commercial settings.

Fabric shelters and shade sails can be a really striking way of creating a useable space and a visually very attractive feature. They have made many retractable and fixed solutions, but as they are essentially temporary structures, yet are subject to the rigours elements of weather, Kemp Sails bring the experience to ensure that the project works practically and exceeds all the expectations. Kemp Sails can bring assistance to the design process and advise with aspects of shading, shelter, drainage, windage, materials and fixings. We do not generally undertake installations, preferring to assist and support contractors with incorporating the installation into their own program of works, (which keeps the project price controlled and potentially adds another profit centre for the project). They do however maintain alliances with several Approved Installers who can offer an implementation service depending upon budget and location. Come and speak to them at LANDSCAPE this September in Battersea Park.
