Episode 7 of the latest “Love Your Garden” series aired on the 22nd October 2019 on ITV1 and this week Alan and his team of horticultural helpers went to South Wales to tackle the most difficult plot the team has ever faced for father-of-three Chris Garlick who has lost his hands and feet to sepsis. Once again Maidenhead Aquatics was proud to have been able to contribute to this amazing project and help to create such a life-transforming space out of what was previously an overgrown dumping ground.
Take a look at the finished results of this beautiful accessible garden that now provides a place where the family can be together and good memories can be made.
With help from the local rugby team to clear the site, Alan’s team created a beautiful dining and social zone that included a cleverly designed water feature to drown out the traffic noise, surrounded by natural planting and accessible pathways. They also incorporated a wellbeing hut for Chris to take time out in and a fantastic adventure area for the children to create memories in.
For advice and ideas on how to incorporate water features and ponds into your garden, speak to your local Maidenhead Aquatics store team and take a look at our online store.
Old favourites tend to be in the hobby for a long time with good reason, usually, it’s because they combine a lot of desirable traits. The metallic form of the Gold barb (Barbodes semifasciolatus) makes an excellent aquarium fish suitable for both tropical and temperate (unheated) setups. These young fishes at our Pyle store are a perfect beginner’s choice.
It’s that time of year when the heating goes back on, and this is something that many of us have in common with our pets. To ensure they remain healthy, it’s important to know that your aquarium heater is working properly and is set to the right temperature for the fishes you keep.
