  • Iroko Driveway Gates Special Offer

    Choosing a gate constructed from Iroko hardwood is a sound decision.
     Iroko is world renowned as a durable hardwood that will give many years service in all weather conditions without risk of rot whilst maintaining a beauty deriving from its wonderful grain.
    Iroko privacy gates are made using the finest materials & craftsmanship
    Every corner  and run of our gates has been hand bevelled in order to ensure rainwater runs off, maximising the lifespan of the gate.
    The timber panel boards are constructed allowing for swelling and slight movement caused by the changing temperatures in the seasons.
    Iroko privacy gates are the high end of timber gates they will still be standing tall and proud after many years of hard weathering.
    We are currently offering our display gates at a discounted price, so now could be the time to add a bit of class to your property/project.

  • Reclaimed Belfast Brick

    Donacloney Mill was the centre of village life from its expansion in the early 19th century until it closed a few years ago.
    The Mill was built using Belfast brick, so when we got news that parts of the mill were being demolished, we thought it would be a good idea to get some of these brick ensuring that they find a new home in some of the new and exciting projects our customers are undertaking.
    .
    A skilled demolition team went in and started the process; this involved stripping back roofs/trusses/slates etc and taking down the walls.
    This left the brick in a loose pile, the next step was to carefully go through this pile picking out useable brick and palletising them
     
     
    The Bricks were transported to our yard and it wasnt long before a couple from Dublin City centre fell in love with them and ordered 8000 for their garden project.
    Haulage was arranged and the pallets were loaded onto the truck to go to there new home.
     
     
    We will hopefully do a blog when the garden project is finished, so keep posted.

  • Finish Of A Garden Feature

    What to put my garden feature on?

    A very nice couple from Co.Down popped in a month or so ago and asked for some help in finding something to set a lead garden feature on. Whatever it was to be sat on would have to be flat, be of a certain size and must not look new.

    When had just recived a really nice batch of reclaimed six sided Yorkstone paving / flagging (i.e.Flat one every side) and we were able to find a piece of that particular size.

    The lady kindly offered to send us a picture to see how it turned out.

     

    I personally think the whole feature turned out really really and look perfect in her lovely garden.

    Many thanks for the picture Helen
