A NEW gardening tool has been launched by paving supplier Marshalls.
The Birkby-based company has become one of the first firms in the UK to introduce an application for the new iPad.
Its free Garden Moodboard app brings together Marshalls’ landscaping expertise and garden inspiration ideas to provide the perfect way to plan a garden.
The Garden Moodboard features four main garden themes. The Gardener’s Garden inspires the fruit and veg growers to plan their planters and raised beds while the Sanctuary Garden creates a haven of tranquillity with ideas for accessories and areas designed for relaxing and sunbathing.
Play and fun are a big feature of the Kids Garden, while the Socialising Garden includes ideas for entertaining and making the most of your outdoor space for summer parties.
Each garden comes with lifestyle photos, videos, product information and swatches to bring ideas to life. Users can add images from an extensive library and find information on product colours, sizes and carbon footprint.
Chris Harrop, group marketing director at Marshalls, said: “This is a really exciting time for Marshalls. We designed this app specifically for the iPad and the result is an app that inspires and helps our customers visualise their dream garden.
“We’re really pleased with the result and we know people are going to love this app – it brings together all the elements you need to make their outdoor spaces perfect for them.”
He said: “We’re planning more updates for the Moodboard, which are planned for release later this year.”
Designed by leading digital creative agency Dolphin, the Marshalls Garden Moodboard has been approved by Apple and is now available to download from Apple’s App Store and Marshalls’ website.
