The Forest Log and Tool Store is a handsome garden structure and, now that winter is approaching, a very useful acquisition. Martyn Loach purchased one recently and here he explains how it is assembled.
In order to bring our customers the best quality products at the keenest prices, we insist on staying close to our suppliers. That's why David Coton and Nathan James Dodd spent a day recently at Rowlinson, manufacturers of quality timber garden products.
An insistence on high standards and the finest materials has been key to Rowlinson's success and that's why this family business has been trading in timber products for nearly 90 years.
Based in Cheshire, we were shown around their impressive premises where arbours and arches, canopies and gazebos, cabins, summerhouses, sheds, storage and a lot more besides, are assembled by their skilled workforce.
Always striving to keep their offering fresh and relevant, the management team showed how new products are designed and manufactured, and these are now available on GardenSite.
Increasing your storage options are a 4ft x 3ft pressure treated shiplap shed, and a contemporary Wooden Patio Storette that will protect cushions and other accessories from the weather.
Their furniture range includes the seven piece Plumley hardwood dining set that folds for easy storage. Faux rattan furniture is designed for use indoor or outside where you may find a choice of sturdy benches.
Wildlife benefits from a range of premium quality bird tables with either slate or wooden roof panels.
Rowlinson take the environmental responsibilities seriously and we were assured that all their timber comes from well managed FSC accredited forests.
With large stock levels, the availability of Rowlinson products is excellent. They are all supplied with full instructions and the appropriate assembly fixings including any felt and glazing.
Our visit to Rowlinson was thoroughly enjoyable, and GardenSite continues to be proud to sell their superb British made products. See all their range at /Garden_Structures/Rowlinson_Garden_Products/ and read about how we are including the Carmen Pavilion into the Halcyon Days show garden at Gardeners' World Live.
