Wyevale Garden Centres opens landscape stores
By Matthew Appleby Tuesday, 12 May 2009
Wyevale Garden Centres has branched out into the landscaping and fencing markets at eight of its centres.
Eight Wyevale stores are launching Landscaping and Fencing Centres this month.
The centres will feature up to 300sq m of display gardens in contemporary, cottage and Mediterranean styles to help provide inspiration to visitors planning a garden landscaping project.
Wyevale buyer Patrick Boyle said: "One of the highlights of the show gardens will be a brick and stone ‘folly' supplied by a specialist company called Redwood. There will also be several displays of water features. All the products on display will be available from the Landscaping and Fencing Centres either from stock or to order.
"We will have a dedicated sales counter to assist customers and the product range is intended to support people so that they can complete their landscaping tasks using items sourced from just one location. We have also invested in new merchandising systems so that we can maintain a good level of stock to ensure key products are available at all times."
He added: "We will offer competitive prices, a quality range, good availability of key lines and ease of access to the site. The centres will have a dedicated JCB Tel truck making the collection of bulky goods easier."
The new centres will carry a range of fencing products, including treated landscaping timbers and fencing, and fence panels.
