Deco-Pak offers the ultimate in urban style and convenience for a new generation of fashion-conscious consumers
Deco-Pak, the innovation-driven garden landscaping and decorative aggregates specialist with a reputation for being at the forefront of the latest consumer trends, is revealing its latest line-up of top-quality products, designed to help consumers transform outdoor living areas.
Deco-Pak’s new Enhance line-up of trend-driven garden accessories ranges from natural stone water features that create the ultimate focal point in gardens, to artificial grass laying accessories that have been created to help lay a perfectly level, low-maintenance artificial lawn.
Natural Stone Water Features will help retailers to raise the bar when it comes to staging high impact displays of instant aquatics. Available in small or medium tulip shapes, or as a 30 or 40cm ball planter, these beautifully hand crafted water features will appeal to time-pressed consumers who are increasingly looking to introduce the tranquil, calming effect of water to gardens and demand products that can be quickly installed and instantly spurred into action.
At the heart of Deco-Pak’s Enhance range are a series of garden features that tap into the latest urban design trends, allowing consumers without any garden design experience to stage a bit of Chelsea Flower Show magic in their own back yards. The Gabion Bench, Gabion Cube and Gabion Planter offer metal cages that can easily be filled with pebbles, creating a high-impact contemporary look that’s beloved by top designers at major flower shows. Deco-Pak’s Straight Bench provides a stylish curved-end bench that demonstrates how modern outdoor seating can be just as fashionable as the latest indoor furniture.
With recent hot, dry summers taking their toll on the nation’s lawns, leaving grass parched and dying, consumers are increasingly turning to artificial lawns to achieve their ambition of creating low-maintenance outdoor rooms. Deco-Pak’s large UK-sourced Artificial Grass Laying Sand will help homeowners to achieve a pristine finish when installing artificial lawns. Laying sand offers a coarser texture than soft sand due to its larger grains, with its flexible nature leading to a smoother surface that results in a perfect, level finish.
With many types of artificial grass featuring long blade heights, ranging from 25mm to 45mm, blades need support to stand up straight and offer the desired manicured lawn effect. This is where Deco-Pak’s Artificial Grass Infill Sand holds the key to success. In artificial lawn products that are manufactured without thatch (synthetic moss), addition of the kiln-dried silica sand adds weight to grass, keeping it level and helping it to bed in. As a further bonus, a two centimetre-deep layer of infill sand, also supplied in a large pack, can help to regulate the temperature of the grass, and can prevent artificial lawns from tearing under heavy use. Point of sale boards are available to draw consumers’ attention to the benefits of Artificial Grass Laying Sand and Artificial Grass Infill Sand and ensure they have the right accessories to make their projects a success.
Deco-Pak Director, Craig Hall, said: “Television shows such as Ground Force and Home Front in the Garden sparked a revolution in garden makeovers, with current TV series such as Love Your Garden continuing to inspire consumers to embark on their own garden renovation projects at home. We know that modern shoppers are time-pressed and seek instant solutions, to create alfresco dining and relaxation areas that reflect the latest urban design trends and demand little or no maintenance. By combining stylish water features, stone-filled gabion benches and artificial lawn accessories into our Enhance range, Deco-Pak is offering a one-stop shop for convenience-driven consumers – and providing retailers with the ultimate package to capture a growing share of the expanding market for low-maintenance, instant effect gardening.”
