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.
Palmako are one of Europe's leading manufacturers of garden buildings using high quality Nordic timber, and David Coton is pleased to announce that their new range of garden houses will soon be available on GardenSite.
Based in Estonia, Palmako are part of a group that take timber from their own forests and saw mills through to the final product. This means that quality control is second to none, and the company emphasise the environmental benefits of working with wood.
Kiln dried Nordic spruce is slow growing and hence highly durable. It's been used as a construction material for hundreds of years and comes from managed forests.
Lightweight, strong, renewable and processed with the minimum use of energy, Palmako timber structures are quick to install and offer great insulation and heat retention, in addition to looking highly attractive in the landscape.
Their Garden Houses are wind and rain resistant with a solid timber roof and floor boards. The foundation joists are pressure treated and the turn-tilt windows glazed. Door frames are laminated and the door sill covered in stainless steel.
GardenSite will initially offer the most popular garden houses from three ranges, including the 'Elegant' line. These are multi-sided pavilion style structures, each with exceptionally high build quality.
They can be an additional room for a hobby or relaxation, a place to spend a pleasant evening with friends or perhaps used for storage of garden equipment.
The Elegant collection also features open sided timber framed covered areas that are ideal for entertaining and relaxing, perfect for summer afternoons and balmy evenings.
'Quick Fit' structures are contemporary buildings for cities and modern developments. They are both attractive and functional, garden buildings that suit the urban lifestyle.
The 'Weekend' selection contains buildings extending up to nearly 70 sq mtrs. There are an impressive range of styles some with extensive glass frontages, others with porches and patios.
As the name implies, they are substantial enough to live in at weekends, and can also be comfortably used as guest accommodation or workshops.
Quality is Palmako's main priority, they use the best raw materials, advanced technologies and have a highly skilled workforce. That's why GardenSite is so pleased to be able to offer their exciting range of garden houses.
