Blooming marvellous

As a local business, we think it’s really important that we get involved with our community. And as a landscaping materials supplier, it makes sense that we’re involved with the multi-award-winning Halesworth in Bloom team. 

Each year, this band of dedicated volunteers works tirelessly to improve the appearance of Halesworth via community horticultural projects. Kings Landscaping has supplied topsoil, compost, railway sleepers – pretty much whatever we’ve been asked for! Among other jobs, members of the Kings team have helped to fill large planters in the town centre and by the railway station.

And it’s not just us who rate Halesworth in Bloom – they’ve received a handful of Anglia in Bloom awards, among other accolades. 

Kings also used to sponsor the Halesworth Gig in the Park (before it became Big Gig) and supplied all the hi-vis equipment for the security personnel.

This year sees Kings Landscaping branching out into the world of sport. We’re sponsoring a local football team, Wenhaston United FC Reserves, who currently play in League A of the Suffolk and Ipswich Football League. Hopefully our backing will spur the lads on to great success!

Autumn Update 2017

David King began his landscaping supplies business after a back injury took him away from building gardens himself. He’d noticed that he wasn’t always able to buy what he needed in the large quantities he required, so set up his own company. These days, he and his team (including his two daughters) supply landscapers and garden designers all over East Anglia and beyond, with more than 600 trade account customers, as well as members of the public. Designers and builders bring their customers into our Halesworth depot so they can see the full range of products Kings supply.

As we head into autumn, David and the team are preparing for a surge in public custom. Spring and autumn are the most popular seasons for taking on new garden projects. Sandstone paving is always popular in landscaping projects, as are railway sleepers and decking materials, as garden designers continue to explore the “outside living” trend. We’re also seeing an upturn in demand for porcelain paving, a strong, damage-resistant alternative to sandstone. Of course, turf remains popular, as people attempt to maximise their green space – but we’ve got half an eye on the weather, too… autumn and winter storms mean we’ll need to keep an eye on our stocks of fence panels!

A Relationship Set In Stone

We’ve been working with Global Stone since our business started in 2005, and have got to know the team there pretty well. Global Stone was formed around the same time as us, just down the road in Colchester, and we’ve forged a good relationship.
Global Stone supply us with sandstone, paving, walling, cobbles and porcelain paving, which is a really big trend right now. Porcelain paving is tougher than it sounds – it’s a ceramic outdoor slab that doesn’t absorb water, so it’s a brilliant low-maintenance option for an outdoor patio. It’s also strong, resistant to mould and moss damage, and won’t fade in the sun, which means if a particular colour is important to your garden scheme, it won’t lose its shade over time.
Sandstone is of course still really popular in many garden designs, and won’t stretch the budget as porcelain might. Global Stone’s range fits both modern and period schemes and is strong enough for driveways and patios, and we know that for many of our customers it’s the ideal solution for their garden schemes.
As Global Stone expands its product range, we look forward to working with our “old friends” and inspiring new landscapes.
