Throw weeds to the curb as Dansand® No Weed™ paves the way for fresh and practical garden spaces
Recent research by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) shows that a quarter of Britain’s front gardens are now paved, concreted or gravelled over, meaning more and more gardeners are looking for practical solutions to rid their slabbed areas of unwanted and pesky perennials.
On average Britons spend around £30,000 on their gardens and overall the number of entirely paved gardens is now estimated at 4.5 million, with a further 7.2 million mostly patio, according to the RHS, there is great demand for practical weeding products that dig down into the cracks. Let's face it nothing spoils the sleek lines and beautiful blooms in the planters surrounding paved areas more than the emergence of the common garden tumble weed.
Patios are an attractive option for space-pressed city dwellers and time-starved suburban settlers alike. In fact the right mix of paving and greenery can be an asset to any coiffed garden space, so much so it has attracted the attention and prestige of the creme de la crème of garden design.
Amateur gardener and winner of BBC Two’s The Great Chelsea Garden Challenge, Sean Murray showcased the power of the pavement to the nations' best gardeners at the Royal Horticultural Society’s (RHS) Chelsea Flower Show by designing a front garden with enough paved space to park a car.
With this in mind, no self-respecting landscape gardener can be without Dansand® No Weed™ - an effective solution to preventing persistent weed growth in the joints on patios, pavements and driveways.
