Blooming Troughs was founded by Stephen and Clare Thompson who have over 20 years experience in building and developing property. The Thompsons are incredibly passionate about design and build, they developed the troughs after looking for something similar for their own garden and realising it didn’t exist. The Thompsons then created their own planters, vases and burners and Blooming Troughs was born! Stephen and Clare worked tirelessly with the design and development to ensure that the troughs not only look good, but they stand everyday wear, weathering and extreme temperatures too!

The process of building the troughs is completely unique – even the glue we use was specially developed by Stephen. This unique formula means that Blooming Troughs can comfortably survive freezing temperatures to -18 degrees with absolutely no damage – as discovered after extensive testing in a blast freezer!

Made in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Blooming Troughs are created from individual slabs of stone – so no two troughs will be the same. Stone used is completely natural and hard wearing – perfect for the troughs outdoor purpose.

We use similar methods to artisan stone masons, which creates a stunning natural result.

Blooming Troughs create the perfect first impression for any grand entrance, garden or outside area. Designed to withstand freezing temperatures, our garden troughs, firepits and vases are not only beautiful but hardy too.

Hand crafted from the finest quality stone and marble, Blooming Troughs are the perfect addition to enhance any outdoor space. As each trough is made to order, we can even design bespoke options to suit.
Blooming Troughs are also eco-friendly and sustainably made. Individually cut to size in our on-site workshop, we utilise any off-cuts during the fabrication process, ensuring that there is absolutely no waste. We also finish and polish each trough by hand, allowing the natural beauty of the stone to shine.

Stylish and luxurious, Blooming Troughs are completely unique – perfect for creating the best first impression of your property!
