    Not that I know of, the only places with that much hardscape are generally wholesalers.
    ALF stock hardscape in similar quantities. However, they are staunch supporters of the high street bricks and mortar shops so they will not sell to the public or even businesses with online presence only.

    I do support my LFSs, and think we all should, even though they are usually about 10-20% more expensive than buying online. Its just the available choices are very limited, and they tend to stock smaller items, understandably.

    Aquarium Gardens have a new type of wood in called Millennium wood - pieces are four foot long. Depends what you’re after.
