Wickes has made Dansand No Weed available online and in 149 of its stores, according to Active Products UK, the exclusive distributor of the product.

Established in 2003, the Essex-based Active Products business has built a strong reputation among the trade for creating high quality, sensibly priced products across handheld lighting, gardening and DIY products.

Active Products has secured a number of exclusive UK distributorships, including US-based Turtle Wax and Dansand No Weed from Danish company Dansand A/S.

The range of Dansand No Weed products have proven particularly popular with landscapers, builders and homeowners as an effective range of environmentally friendly joint-filling products that inhibits weed growth on patios, pavements and driveways, according to the company.

Wickes DIY will be stocking a number of products from the Dansand range, including;

  • No Weed Block Paving Sand, with a stylish light colour
  • No Weed Stone Dust for paving for dark joints
  • No Weed Polymeric Paving Joint Fix for jointing and repairing paving.

The naturally high pH value helps to create desert-like conditions making it effective at inhibiting weed growth and germination. The Dansand products are water resistant, long lasting and eco-friendly, and suitable for use on new and old stone and block paving, driveways, patios, tiles or bricks.

Ted McLoughlin, sales director at Active Products, said: "We are delighted that Wickes will be making our range of No Weed products available across their network of stores and online. The Dansand brand makes a great fit with Wickes, where quality, product performance and value for money is paramount."
