Timber garden decking never seems to lose its popularity, and why should it, when it's such a useful way of extending your living and entertaining space. Andy Taylor explains why decking is so easy to install and how best to look after it.
Over the past few years, Citizen Khan, starring Adil Ray, has established itself as a very popular BBC comedy. We were therefore more than happy to supply the production company with a pair of Lion Garden Ornaments to decorate the front entrance of Mr Khan's house.
The comedy series Citizen Khan was first shown in 2012 and received impressive viewing figures, the central figure is a laughably opinionated community leader who naturally wants to make his rather mundane house as grand as possible.
This is taken from the BBC website:- "Citizen Khan is a warm family comedy set in the capital of British Pakistan - Sparkhill, East Birmingham. It follows the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan (Adil Ray) and his long suffering family."
These pair of lions were the obvious choice, as they are made from solid concrete and very durable, you should see a lot of them as the series progresses.
They are not the only lions available on GardenSite, our Gondwana and Etosha lions are named after the Southern Africa game reserves, the Leazes Park Lion was specially commissioned as part of a restoration project and, as an alternative to these fierce guardians, there's a cuddly version - Vivid Arts Sitting Lion Cub
In addition, we have an impressive range of other animals crafted in resin and marble as well as stone. These include other exotic animals, domestic pets and amphibians.
Dogs, puppies, birds and farmyard animals abound and the children will love the meerkat collection with these lovable animals portrayed as several characters.
All the animals will certainly be great conversational subjects. Manufactured from high quality materials they are very hardwearing and can be displayed indoors or outside where they are frost proof and weather resistant.

There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, tips and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2019.
Wood burners and open fires that require a good supply of dry, well seasoned wood, have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity over the past few years. Log stores have therefore become increasingly essential and David Coton explains the differences between the many that are now available.
