Garden Floor

All the essentials, from ground cover plants to stepping stones.

We have a wide range of ground cover plants, low-growing grasses, succulents, stepping stones, pebbles, bark chips and crushed stone. We can help you combine these elements to create your perfect garden floor.

Beautiful living carpets are a great alternative to watering and maintaining thirsty lawns. Plant low-growing succulents, water wise ground covers and low-growing grasses with expanses of hard landscaping materials like mulch or gravel.
