Woodshaw is the brand name of the new timber garden furniture and decorative features range that Kelkay, one of the UK's leading landscape materials suppliers, are launching following their acquisition of Anchorfast.
Presented by Sarah Beeny, Double Your House For Half The Money helps people achieve their property dreams without breaking the bank and at a fraction of the cost of moving. A GardenSite product is once again featured in the programme, this time a lockable container to solve a couple's storage problem.
The episode features Russ and Jen Hunt from Sheffield who want a larger family but don't really have enough space. They can't afford to move into a larger home, so must build an extension to their current house. However, they will still have plenty of belongings that need to be securely stowed away.
The programme offers information on the latest products, technology and up-to-date design, so Sarah suggests using Suncast Plastic Outdoor Storage.
These high volume containers can be padlocked for security and are manufactured using top quality, highly durable, UV stable resin and new blow moulding technology. That's why they are guaranteed for so many years.
Ideal for storing anything from garden tools to cushions, they won't look out of place anywhere in the garden, decorated in a style to replicate wicker and rattan.
There are benches and seats as well as boxes and chests, and the Wicker Deck Box, which has a piston mechanism lid, would look fantastic on a patio or decking area.
Plastic storage solutions, with their durability and long life, are increasingly seen as sound investments, highly practical, attractive and virtually maintenance free.
With autumn approaching, it might be time to consider one for anything that might be left in the garden unprotected from the weather until next year.
New products are the lifeblood of many industries and it’s no different in the gardening sector and most of us above a certain age will know the Rubbermaid brand well, particularly if you have ever been in the cleaning industry.
GLEE is the garden retail industry's annual show at the NEC in Birmingham. David Coton took the opportunity to visit this year's event to catch up on the news, visit current/potential suppliers and evaluate new products we would like to offer on GardenSite in the coming year.
I had never heard of Evika Greenhouses but when I walked into our annual Garden & Leisure Exhibition 2019 (GLEE) it was the only product I really saw. A brand new greenhouse brand is always going to get my attention but the sense that this was not only new, but different, kept my focus.
Although the growing season is slowly coming to an end, David Coton can suggest quite a few jobs that need to be done over the next few weeks, helping you make the most of what's left of summer and preparing for the arrival of autumn.
