The benefits of a family run business and a personal service

My company, D&G Garden World, has been in the gardening and fencing business for over 20 years .

Along with my busines partner Graham, I founded Webb’s Garden Centre, a company that became a household name throughout Essex throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

I believe that Webb's became so successful and a household name in Essex because of the personal service we offered. Customers would ask us for advice on absolutely anything - and they got it. We didn't just sell gardening supplies, we helped people learn how to use them.

We’ve always liked to go a step further with the service we offer customers. Simply delivering fencing or turf isn’t really much help to anyone who isn’t confident in doing the job themselves. That’s why we provide a free advisory service to all customers purchasing products for their garden project.

We appreciate that not everyone can afford to hire a professional landscape gardening company to design their garden and that some want to tackle the job themselves. We make sure that garden DIY-ers are not left alone to get on with the job by helping customers choose the right type of products in the right quantities, whether that is turf, fencing, decking, patio slabs or anything else they might need for their garden. Graham and I are happy to offer the benefit of our experience and expertise by explaining how best to carry out the job and how to maintain their finished garden.

Feel free to call in to 1B Sunnyside Gardens, Upminster, Essex or telephone 07852 666858 or visit if you'd like to talk to us about your Essex gardening needs.
