Alan Titchmarsh to demonstrate WoodBlocX on TV

Alan Titchmarsh will use "lego for gardens" - WoodBlocX - which are wooden blocks that fit together using large plastic dowels to create raised beds , planters, retaining walls, ponds, kerbing or special garden features like seats, on his ITV show at 3pm on 16 September.

The wood is selected pine from sustainably managed forests.

It is quarter-sawn and pressure treated twice during the manufacturing process. The first treatment is before machining and the second is after cutting and drilling. This ensures full penetration of the preservative through the wood and gives a service life of over 20 years in ground contact.

The dowels are made from recycled plastic and have a patented locking action when assembled. This means that your raised bed, pond or retaining wall will form one large rigid structure with many connections to hold it together. Because of this WoodBlocX structures need no foundations.

The modular system is billed as an alternative to railway sleepers.
