Marshalls is the UK’s leading hard landscaping transformation company which has supplied some of the most prestigious landmarks in the UK with hard landscaping solutions since the 1890s. With a market-leading position in its industry Marshalls has become synonymous with quality and innovative product development whilst still caring for the environments and communities in which it operates by actively operating a sustainable business model.
Sustained growth and diversification has seen Marshalls expand to become the market leader in its sector. It supplies superior quality natural stone and innovative concrete hard landscaping products along with street furniture and water management solutions to the construction, home improvement and landscape markets.
The Marshalls Group operates its own quarries and manufacturing sites throughout the UK and, as a major plc, is committed to quality in everything it does. This includes environmental best practice and continual improvement in health and safety performances.
Marshalls recently became the first company in the world to carbon label its entire domestic product range by working with the Carbon Trust to create independently audited values using the PAS2050 methodology.
Marshalls was the first company in the hard landscaping industry to belong to the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), a diverse alliance of retailers, brands, trade unions and NGOs working collectively to tackle the complex questions posed by ethical trade.
Over recent years, we have had the privilege of supplying materials to many projects in the Middle East, Far East and USA where clients have insisted on materials of a more prestigious nature than obtainable locally. Local projects include Dubai Marina, Festival City, Yas Island, and Masdar Institute, Abu Dhabi, where we supplied Victorian Gold Sandstone in various sizes and 100x100x100 Concrete Conservation Setts.
Marshall’s brand values are based on trust, honesty and integrity in all of its activities. Its vision is to be the supplier of choice to the landscape architect and contractor for architectural landscaping and to the consumer for garden and driveway improvement projects.
To fulfill the security needs of locations which require very different levels of protection, Marshalls Street Furniture has developed and successfully impact tested a range of high security RhinoGuard bollards to BSI PAS 68. Independently crash tested at the MIRA research facility, RhinoGuard bollards provide assured impact performance at three distinct levels of protection and budget. This ranges from a 1.5 tonne car at travelling 30mph, to a 2.5 tonne 4x4 vehicle and fully laden 7.5 tonne two axle lorry travelling at 40mph.
Further development and testing has enabled us to offer a range of high security PAS 68 planters. These solutions mean that the inclusion of hostile vehicle mitigation measures in landscape design does not mean that the overall look and feel of a scheme should be diminished in any way.
