MKM opens Glasgow landscaping display

Published:  10 April, 2015

MKM Building Supplies has launched what the company believes is Glasgow's largest landscaping display.

Based at the company's Nuneaton Street branch, the display covers an area of more than 4,000sq ft and stocks a wide range of products from basic paving through to cutting-edge driveway products.

After more than a year in development, it opened in time for Easter and the onset of the traditional gardening season.

Craig Millar of MKM Glasgow described the display as "massive", adding that it enables the company to supply a huge range of turfs, aggregates, paving, walling, decking and fencing.

"Our products are designed and selected with meticulous attention to detail, ensuring our customers receive the best quality at a price that's right," he said.

The branch is staffed with a range of experts on hand to provide advice on any project that trade or the public are looking to undertake.

Mr Millar said: "We are really proud of the new landscaping display. Certainly it is the only one in the east of the city and we think it is possibly the largest one in the whole of Glasgow. We wanted our new display to be the place to go for garden projects and packed full of inspirational and innovative products to suit a range of outdoor spaces."

Mr Millar added that with Easter usually hailing the onset of better weather, the company was looking forward to a bright year ahead.

MKM has also developed a new landscaping feature online at Visitors to the site can see a range of inspiring landscaping collections available online to view or purchase for free delivery.

MKM Building Supplies is the largest independent builders' merchant in the UK, with 42 branches ranging from Perth to Deal in Kent.

Earlier this month, MKM Building Supplies reported a 31% increase in sales for the 12 months to September 30, 2014, compared with the same period in the previous year, significantly outperforming the industry.
