Forest New Storage Range

Another 12 months have flown by since I was last at Forest Garden. I look forward to visiting their offices, storage and manufacturing facility in Worcestershire each year, and this time I was specifically interested in seeing their exciting new storage products for 2018 which were announced to the trade a couple of months ago.

I met with Rachel Lowe, our National Account Manager, along with her 'Bump' and Sales & Marketing Director John Gomersall who both talked me through what Forest have to offer GardenSite and our customers in the way of storage for 2018.

What's On Offer For 2018

Garden Stores already vary widely in style and size, and Forest, who use local sustainably sourced timber and manufacture in their own sawmills, have now announced a new range to complement these existing products.

At the moment Forest offer compact storage for bikes and miscellaneous garden equipment together with wheelie bin stores and even a version designed specifically for boots and wellingtons.

Additional outdoor storage always comes in handy and they have now launched this innovative new outdoor range that offers something for everyone who doesn't need or can accommodate a full sized shed.

Available with shiplap or overlap cladding and with an apex or pent roof, the choice ranges from a compact storage box to larger outdoor units. All are pressure treated and carry a 15 year anti-rot guarantee.

With great specifications, Forest have ensured that each store has an attractive appearance to go with their practical design, and they will certainly enhance any garden or outside space.

They are all designed with ease of use in mind and helpful features such as a pent roof being able to be assembled sloping forwards or backwards as necessary.

Whatever storage solution is required, and this could be for anything from tools to seat cushions, lawn mowers to barbecues, Forest now offer a product to meet all your needs.

Forest's Exceptional Home Delivery Service

Home deliveries now account for over 50% of Forest Garden's business. Over the years more and more consumers are purchasing great products with the intention of having them delivered directly to their homes and this trend has become key to our business. We understand how important quick and efficient delivery is to our customers, that's why GardenSite and Forest  are always looking to improve systems and processes year on year. 

With this in mind, development is now underway to offer customers a pick a day delivery service directly at the point of purchase. Further changes to the home delivery pricing structure will enable the product to remain competitively priced and, as logistic costs have also been reviewed, Forest will be able to retain the same high level of delivery standards.

Congratulations To Rachel

After a great meeting, all that was left was to wish all of the team at Forest Garden a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year, and especially wish Rachel and her partner big congratulations and all the very best as they are expecting their first child to be born very shortly. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
