About us

After almost 30 years of growth and development, three words continue to describe our ethos – ‘Quality of Service’. Our reputation as a market leader is built on:
  • Our industry heritage
  • Providing high quality products
  • Our expertise
  • Attention to detail

2019 was a landmark year for the AVS team with increased investment into both infrastructure and our team skill development as we plan our future strategy. Specifically our focus has been on:

  • Fleet expansion
  • Increased and more diverse product range
  • Complete rebrand
  • Launch of a new eCommerce trading site
  • New front of house product displays
  • New ‘in house’ staff skills and development training courses
  • Forming a new operational management team

We now currently stock over 5000 items including fencing, gates, decorative aggregates, sleepers, tools, sheds and summerhouses. Additionally 8 of our 10 branches now have on site workshops with skilled craftsmen creating bespoke gates and fencing to the highest quality.

All of this is just part of our ongoing commitment to ensure that our ‘Quality of Service’ remains exactly that.


At AVS, we know where all our wood comes from. 90% of our timber is home-grown in the UK and Ireland and it all comes from forests that are sustainably managed by the UK Forestry Stewardship Commission


Our founder started working in fencing over 50 years ago and started AVS in 1993. In 2020, AVS was acquired by Lawsons - a respected and family owned business operating from seventeen branches throughout London and the South East.


AVS only work with the best suppliers who produce the highest-quality products: whether a gate manufacturer who supply the Royal estates or a family-run sawmill who've been cutting timber for generations. We always go for quality first.


We know timber and landscaping like no-one else and are here to share our knowledge and expertise. Our in-house workshops offer bespoke craftsmanship. With our help, you can achieve the garden you've always dreamed about
