Melcourt leading the way

The future of British landscaping is peat-free – and Melcourt is leading the way with an ever widening range of products and a vastly expanded stockist network

The move towards peat-free landscaping is accelerating as the first of the government’s deadlines for the elimination of peat use approaches and awareness of the environmental damage caused by peat extraction grows.

The Melcourt range of peat-free topsoils, composts, soil improvers and mulches is now available from a national network of specialist landscape stockists and builders merchants which has grown by almost 100 outlets in recent months. The traditional Melcourt bark-based products are now also complemented by a range of decorative aggregates.

“Sales to landscapers of both bagged and bulk products continue to grow at an exceptional rate as their availability nationwide improves,” says Andy Chalmers, Melcourt Managing Director. “The peat-free deadlines need hold no fears for landscape professionals since we have a proven peat-free alternative for every situation and budget.”
