About Us

Broadoak Leisure Buildings was established in Torrisholme over 25 years ago by Derek Sumner. Well known locally for its comprehensive range of sheds, conservatories and greenhouses, Broadoak has also been a major supplier of real Christmas trees over the years, a popular tradition that continues to the present day.

Gardners Tiles was established in Lancaster in the early 1930s as a roof tiling company and later on as one of the first tile sellers in England. The family company went from strength to strength throughout the next few decades until it moved to a new home on White Lund Industrial Estate. In 2010 it was taken over by Mike and Jane Foster, ably assisted by showroom manager Dan Nield. Since then, they have continually pushed to preserve Gardners’ high level of quality whilst maintaining competitive prices.

Due to the need for more space and work starting on the new Heysham bypass, these two valued local businesses merged in 2013 to become Broadoak Home and Garden, retaining the Gardners brand within the new business.  Having settled into the new location at Southgate on White Lund, we aim to keep growing and improving to continue to meet the needs of our customers – and helping them to put the heart into their homes!
