What is a Garden Centre Canopy?

Garden centre canopies can be used to cover large external areas, providing protection from the weather. This allows the customers to browse at all times throughout the year and helps garden centres get more use out of their land. Covered walkways can also be installed to protect customers walking from the car park to the shop front.

A&S Landscape Garden Centre Canopies

With Garden Centres enjoying an upsurge in the number of visitors, now is a great time to further capitalise. One way to do this is by increasing the amount of covered space you have, to ensure a steady flow of customers even on a dark, wet winters day. An option to enclose the canopy offers more robust protection from wind and driving rain. A canopy can expand your retail space creating additional room for gift displays or offering a little extra protection for the plants that are less hardy.

Do you have an area that has less footfall? Customers are often put off by having to walk from a sheltered inside space to a different unit, a covered walkway could easily solve this problem. Would your wonderfully curated grounds benefit from a snack hut? A servery combined with a garden sun shade would keep visitors cool while they enjoy a hot beverage and take in their surroundings.

A trip to a garden centre wouldn’t be the same without a visit to the tearoom! Our dining canopies can be fully enclosed and even be equipped with heating and lighting. If you struggle for inside dining space, then it may be worthwhile to offer a covered outdoor area.

Our range of garden centre canopies have been expertly designed to offer a wide range of benefits, not only do they have the wow factor, but they are also robust and easy to maintain making them a worthwhile investment.

Taskers Home and Garden Store in Liverpool add Covered Walkway

Covered walkway we installed at Taskers Garden Centre

What was the project brief?

The Taskers store located in Hunts Cross, Liverpool has officially been open since 2015. They sell various supplies for the home and garden, including plants and outdoor furniture. However, like all businesses, the external areas are not immune to the effects of the unpredictable British weather.

Having a diverse range of garden supplies, they needed to develop a covered outside space which would keep their shoppers dry while browsing. They approached canopy experts A&S Landscape to help them achieve their goal. This was to add a covered walkway that would complement the existing structure. Taskers are a well-respected business after all, and so it was paramount for customers to have the best experience while shopping.

What was our garden centre shelter solution?

Covered walkway we installed at Taskers Garden CentreOur proposed structure was the Motiva Mono™. This is a prime example of a canopy that is an exemplary choice for covered walkways. With an asymmetric (one side higher than the other) curved roof, the shelters look attractive, modern and quite simply stylish. These canopies are fabricated with the highest-quality materials and have an in-built system of Alu-Tuff™ boxed profile guttering. Finished in Dura-Coat™ paintwork they are one highly effective structure!

An absolute necessity for Taskers was the need for the shelter to fit seamlessly with their high-end, slick-black branding. This was possible with the Motiva Mono™ canopy, unlike other non-versatile conventional structures. Made to measure at 27000mm x 3000mm, with a smart black steel frame (RAL 9005) and opal polycarbonate roofing, the shelter was an impressive statement, yet completely on-brand.

What was the result of the new garden centre canopy?

The result of the canopy has been fantastic. Not only does it look the part, but it also plays the highly important role of keeping the shoppers dry. This is great for business, as now customers can visit the store and browse the garden section even when it’s raining. It provides more space, and with that comes the additional retail opportunity.

The weatherproof canopy has been an excellent asset for Taskers, who are very much taking advantage of the covered walkway. There is no doubt that the customers now have a better shopping experience, the professional displays of flowers are protected from the changeable weather, and so are the customers!

About the client

Taskers are a home and garden store chain that have large stores scattered around the North West of England, as well as an online range of products that are suitable for delivery. The branch we completed the work for was the Taskers Store at Hunts Cross in Liverpool.

We took an integrated approach on this project, working with Taskers, the contractors and architects to ensure we were able to meet all of the needs for the commercial site. It was a pleasure to work with the home store, and source for them a canopy that really benefits their retail space.

Why invest in a garden centre canopy?

Garden Centre ShelterThe benefits of investing in a canopy for your garden centre can prove to be extremely fruitful – here are but a few of the possible positive impacts a shelter can have:

Commercial opportunities 

Outdoor under-utilised areas are just waiting to be transformed. Popular expansions for a garden centre include cafés and delicatessens, a farm shop or for various other outdoor goods. Our canopies are a great way to help your business to continue to develop while being superb value for money.

Protect the flower and plants

Hands up if you’ve ever spent a long weekend tirelessly working away at your garden, only for it to be destroyed not long after when a storm hits. It’s a real shame when it’s your own hard work, but when it affects your profits, it can affect your livelihood too. Let stock damage and loss be a thing of the past with a large, sturdy shelter.

Improve the customer experience

It’s not surprising that garden centres are a popular choice for an enjoyable day out. As a nation, we love to tend to our gardens, and with just an hour of light gardening a week burning off 87 Mars Bars per year, it’s a healthy hobby to have! While that is great for your business, it means it’s equally important that you meet the customers’ demands. When they visit your garden centre, they will want to be comfortable, and this means access to fresh air but also protection from the weather. Be an inspiring destination and add that weatherproof canopy!
