Log Cabins Alba
www.logcabinsalba.com is a recent addition to the Milestone Garden and Leisure range.
For the logcabinsalba.com range, we aim to be the number 1 choice for log cabins in Scotland so we have carefully chosen our range from some of the most experienced manufacturers in Europe to bring our customers a great selection of quality and value for money buildings.
The timber used in our buildings comes from strictly managed forests in the Baltic area where the slow grown wood is stronger and more dense and therefore is ideal for garden buildings. And it is not just the timber we have taken great care in sourcing; the windows and doors as well as all other materials such as roofing and insulation have all been chosen to complement the high quality log cabins in our range.

September Gardening Tips
Now that summer is coming to an end it is time to get ready for autumn. If you have a fruit or vegetable patch it is time to harvest and enjoy the fruits of your labour! The most important thing for September is to enjoy the nice weather in your garden while you still can! We have outlined some of the main activities for the garden in order to help prepare for autumn, winter and also next year.
- Remember to dig the remainder of your potatoes before slug damage spoils them
- Use copper based fungicide in September and October to prevent cherries from getting canker next year
- This is the most effective time to use glyphosate weed killers to get rid of tough perennial weeds such as dandelions, bindweed and dock
- Plant spring flowering bulbs and winter bedding
- Trim your hedges to keep them neat and tidy throughout the winter months
- Start cleaning out greenhouses and cold frames ready for use in the autumn remember to line them with bubble polythene to act as insulation as the night temperatures begin to fall
