The masco garden yard

Well the summer is nearly coming to an end but September promises to be mainly warm and sunny  so if you’re still  looking to finish off garden projects, we have a great assortment of quarry tiles, pavers and path edgings.  Lovely for small garden pathways and creating seating areas.
