Attending Glee, the leading garden and leisure industry show, was a great opportunity for Nathan Dodd to spot trends and anticipate products that will come onto the market in the near future.
Massarelli’s have entered the UK water feature and fountain market, gracing our gardens with their American made fine stone products which are beautifully detailed and built to last.
The Massarelli’s Lawn Ornaments brand was born in 1972 when Mario Massarelli was just 17 years of age on a three acre site in Egg Harbor City, New Jersey.
Mario is self taught and did everything himself to begin with, he designed the products, made moulds and even sold his fountains to the trade and the public.
The business grew and in 1994 they moved to a 100,000 square foot facility on 12 acres in Hammonton, New Jersey. In 1996 25 more acres were added to this site to account for growth.
Over 40 years have passed since a young Mario started his business and today he is still hands-on, enjoying the pleasure of seeing his business as a passion and not actually work. He has a hand in every Massarelli product that comes to market, something he prides himself on.
Massarelli's offer an extensive range of products that includes fountains, bird baths and statues. They tell us that they believe this is the reason for their success, they already offer a large range of products in the UK which they hope to increase in the coming years.
Every Massarelli’s fountain is American made which means high quality and they all come with their own pump so you can set your new fountain up right away. Selected products also come with lights so you can enjoy your water features day or night.
You can choose from small fountainettes to their very large 3 or 4 tier fountains which have their own pool, perfect as a centrepiece in a large garden, driveway or even somewhere such as a wedding venue.
Massarelli’s range of fountains are all available for delivery to your home and will arrive on a pallet. They’re extremely well packed, wrapped in sack cloth and then the whole pallet is black wrapped too.
