Over the last few years we have been working closely with Moss Landscapes of Liverpool – they have a major show site based at Dobbies Garden centre in Speke near the Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
At the show site you will see a fine selection of their Landscaping work. With every thing from basic block Paving , Cobble paving , Patterned Concrete and general Patin Paving.
Within the next few months, Moss Landscapes Liverpool are providing us with a display of products at our Liverpool Show site.
We are presently in the process of revamping our show site . We have been finding that gradually over the last few years the trend has been changing from cheap Garden Sheds to better quality buildings.
Especially with the way the present recession is going in the UK the cheaper end of the market place is being squeezed by the big multinationals who put out low price low-quality Garden Buildings, basically flooding the industry with buildings that simply don’t sell.
We saw this happening and decided to steer away from the low grade , cheap and cheerful sheds and summerhouses the very same with Landscaping which as seen every Tom Dick and Harry buying a spade and rake then calling them selves Professional Landscapers !
For this reason, we have teamed up with Moss Landscapes because of the quality of their work and professional manner so we can display our new range of Premium Garden Buildings within a well-landscaped environment.

Sheds and Studios Tuff
The name Tuff Sheds is actually a very well know brand of Garden Buildings in America .
Yet the word Tuff Sheds can mean any number of things , but here in UK we would see it as being a Tuff , Strong Shed .
In some ways the Americans are way a head of us in the UK on their styles and verities of Timber Garden Buildings and Yard Sheds.
Tuff Sheds USA have recently launched a New Product called the :

Garden Shed Bases
Every Garden Building no matter what size will require a good Solid Level Area for it to sit on . Fail to do this will only give you long term problems
You simply can NOT just put your new garden shed directlyon to the Lawn or Grass , apart from not usually being particularly level it will immediately attract water directly into the Timber Floor of your new shed. and start to cuase damp and rot.
Ideally you Building needs to be raised above any wet or Damp Areas to ensure your floor says dry . If you can get it so you have an air flow under it all the better
After 35 years in this job i have seen many , many buildings and the damage an incorrectly sited building ends up reciving. Would you like to sit in Damp Cloths all Day ? No so why expect your Shed to !
There are a number of solutions to over come this problem.
All of which are jobs you can do your self or as part of our service we offer a Base Laying Service.
Timber Framed Bases
Above shows a Timber Framed base being installed onto a substantial strip flagged and gravel surround base.T
here are a lot of premonitions to this design, but fundamentally as long as it is solid and level is the Key. As every individual client has an idea of not only what they want, but how much they want to spend on a base.
It can be as simple or as complex or expensive as you want !
Pressure Treated Timber Base
Above image in a Pressure Treated Timber Frame base nearly complete. This sort of construction is mainly used for Heavy Duty Workshops or Log Cabins. The posts are usually concreted into the ground with speed setting concrete.
While this is setting the lads will start fixing the cross members and braces suitable for that size of structure.
This type of base is more suited to Garden Cabin type structures as they them selves are generally a more expensive product.
If you intend to buy a Log Cabin Style building we highly recommend this sort of base, it will allow air to be circulated and thus prolong the life of the building.
Above is a more traditional Flagged style base – laid on thin layer of sand – our prices include supplying and fitting used / recycled paving flags and NOT new versions .
The price is also only a guide as unless we can see the actual conditions it is Imposable to quote and is based up on the ground being reasonable level with an Inch or 25mm . Any more than this will require extra work levelling and as such an extra cost .
If you are in doubt in any way please send us a photo of the area for us to asses the situation . DO NOT leave it until the day of the job it can cause delays to both your job and other clients who may be expecting deliveries after you
Another great way of creating a suitable base for most buildings .
There are a number of ways this base can be undertaken all of which are controlled by ground conditions and the amount of budget you are prepared to spend on your gravel base .
The cheapest way is if you have a Lawn / Grassed area is to remove about 2inch ( 50mm) of that turf and basically fill in the area that is left with suitable gravel.
The idea is that the remaining turf acts as an edging stoping the gravel from spilling over.
It is recommended that this gravel base is made slightly larger than the building itself which will allow any wage that drains of the roof to be soaked away.
The second way is a little more expensive and will require a timber frame to be dug into the ground after removing the turf . This timber frame will effectivley support the gravel from over spilling.
What exactly is a Man Cave you ask ?
Well, it is a place of sanctuary when us men can go for some ME TIME with out the interruption / nagging / moaning for our Other halfs !
Woman go shopping right
Men hate shopping and that’s a fact so we need something to focus our attentions on – so why not let us have our own Man Cave. Somewhere we men can go and do what men do.
There is even an official man cave web site in the USA. I think it is called man cave.org
They State on their site and describe a Man Cave as –
a room or other area in a home that is primarily a male sanctuary, designed and furnished to accommodate the man’s recreational activities, hobbies, etc.: The basement is my husband’s man cave—during football season, you can usually find him down there watching the game with his buddies on the big-screen TV.
Basically for most of us it will be a Garden Shed at the end of the Garden Somewhere. But for those will a little extra money you could invest in a Interlocking Log Cabin Style Timber Building that can cost up to many thousands of pounds.
We recently completed a 5m x 5m Twin Skin 44mm Thick Cabin for a Premiership Footballer in Birmingham .
This was fitted out to a very hight standard and included Widescreen TVs / Bar / Surround sound music system and all the usual Boys Toys.
Try going a Google Search for Man caves and some interesting subjects will come up !Name(required)Email(required)Comment(required)
