Garden services company Duxbury's buys Trebaron Garden Centre

Duxbury's, the Lancashire garden services company, has moved into retail after buying the Trebaron Garden Centre in Leyland, Lancashire.

The company plans to invest in the two hectare site after the £750,000 acquisition is complete.

The outlet has now been renamed Duxbury's Garden Centre.

Founder Frank Duxbury said: "We have bought the garden centre to complement our existing business interests.  

"Our landscaping company has outgrown its current premises and in addition, we have plans for further expansion in 2013; including building a training facility to give our staff the best training possible; which will require extra space.  

"Whilst the business has been successfully operating for three decades, we plan to improve the garden centre’s facilities; with changes to the car park and customer toilets.

"Additionally, we plan to develop the café, which will serve good food in comfortable surroundings; with leather settees and a log burning stove to add to the atmosphere. Children will be catered for with an undercover play area."

Alexander Mackie Associates were selling agents.
