If you own a home or a business property in the Crawley area and require a dedicated garden or grounds maintenance service, look no further than Kings Landscapes. Located in Dorking, we specialise in panel fencing, security fencing and artificial grass. We also maintain land around domestic and commercial properties, and provide our customer portfolio with a full range of landscaping solutions under the banner of a single company.
We care deeply about the quality of product we provide so, on this page, Kings Landscapes takes an in-depth look at what goes into the three products mentioned in the opening paragraph; panel fencing, security fencing and artificial grass. We also discuss the history of these products. The professionalism we bring to projects in Crawley makes us a preferred choice for garden and grounds maintenance in Surrey, West Sussex and the South East.
Artificial grass first came to prominence during the 1960s through its use in American sporting arenas. The first venue to house artificial grass was the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. Since then, artificial products have become a low-maintenance choice for residential lawns and for recreational applications. Durability in all weathers and minimal maintenance requirements see customers in Crawley appreciating it for its “NO FUSS – NO MUSS” nature.
The technology behind artificial grass has come a long way since its initial inception, but manufacturers still produce it in much the same way. Artificial grass has layers made from materials used in carpet manufacture, like woven polyester and jute, for a stronger backing. Our grounds maintenance team sows rubber, made from shredded tyres, or sand between the nylon blades. This provides cushioning and galvanises the durability of artificial grass.
The final result is a robust, durable and hardwearing surface that requires practically no maintenance from property owners in Crawley and minimal attention from our company.
The personnel at our garden and grounds maintenance company have installed most fencing types over the past 30 years. The most common timber materials used for domestic and commercial fencing projects in Crawley are pine, fir and spruce. This is because they all have exceptional durability. These types of fencing have insecticidal preservatives known as CCA – Chromate Copper Arsenate – which we know to deter insects such as termites.
Kings Landscapes only uses pressure-treated panels with a water-repellent stain to prevent the spitting, cracking, rot and damage caused by damp weather conditions.
Customers may wish to consider some of the other fencing varieties we have available to improve the aesthetics of their Crawley homes or businesses. For example, bamboo fencing gives an Oriental feel to gardens, and it is one of the hardiest woods in our sector. Post-and-rail fencing provides excellent containment for livestock and is perfect for smallholdings.
We also construct pickets, trellises, screens, posts and gates. The grounds maintenance team at Kings Landscapes has experience in fitting fencing to suit the needs of all customers.
Because of its versatile and robust nature, our landscaping and grounds maintenance company likes to use steel palisade fencing on properties in Crawley that require security fencing. The term “palisade” comes from the individual “pales” or posts that this fence consists of. Palisade security fencing has been in use since the times of the Ancient Greeks and Romans, protecting their military camps with a fearsome wall of wooden stakes.
The design gave the enemy an unmistakeable message to KEEP AWAY!
The palisade security fencing used by our personnel is a cold-rolled steel, a treatment often used for industrial products because of its high tensile strength and an advanced turning process that eliminates surface flaws. We understand the need to protect valuable assets at commercial properties in Crawley. This is why our garden and grounds maintenance team uses palisade security fencing as an effective deterrent against all potential intruders.
