Meadow View supports Kate's Greenfingers fundraising
GTN Xtra Promotion


As Silver supporters of the Greenfingers Charity, Meadow View Stone welcomes the opportunity of collaborating with fellow suppliers to raise funds for this inspirational cause. So, when Kate Ebbens asked the business to sponsor her for running 365 days consecutively to raise funds – how could they refuse!


Meadow View Stone are a leading supplier of premium decorative aggregates, paving and horticultural grits and sands, exclusively to the garden centre sector. Having launched a series of phenomenally successful premium, washed, decorative aggregate blends over the years, the company has revolutionised the hard landscaping category with their collection of exclusive products and innovative point of sale concepts. 


At Glee, the company launched their new “Themed” point of sale vinyl’s which correlate products to a common theme, be it a design trend, colour theme or specific project. These inspiring graphics and display gardens give stockists a selection of stunning gardens to inspire customers by relating products to a project which they can then replicate. 


Customers are already commenting on the displays, having said “I never thought of using stepping stones to create a pathway, I am definitely going to recreate that in the spring.”    


Stockists are equally extremely impressed on the transformation these displays give to their hard landscaping areas and see the potential the new POS offers by inspiring customers to undertake projects, such as smartening up their front door, creating a pathway or a tranquil space to relax and enjoy. 


All at Meadow View Stone would like to wish Kate all the best with her endeavours and would urge fellow suppliers and customers to similar sponsor Kate.


Show your support for Kate

Kate is hoping to raise as much as £10,000 over the next 365 days. To show your support please visit her JustGiving page*, or look out for her at forthcoming industry events.
