David Coton was recently invited to the exclusive launch of Grange's new products for 2018, the result of significant investment that the garden structures and fencing firm have received from their Polish parent company.
Grange is a timber products firm that has been around more than most, so Nathan James Dodd and David Coton from GardenSite visited their Telford base to see how the company's impressive range is manufactured.
Since 1868 the company has been producing fencing and an impressive variety of garden structures, including gazebos and arbours, arches, planters, gates and furniture.
An outstanding selection that will enhance your garden and encourage you to make the full use of any outdoor space you may have.
Sourcing the best materials from throughout the world, we saw how traditional skills and new technology combine to create such wonderful products.
Always innovative, their Flower Walk and Rope Walk pergolas and Flower Circles are particularly striking pieces of contemporary design that have been featured in TV gardening programmes.
Grange also explained that their pre-painted colour range is the first of its kind in the industry.
The colours – Sage Green, Venetian Red, Cornish Cream, Iris Blue, and Rush Green – are long lasting due to UVA protection and the structures are delivered ready painted together with a pot of touch-up paint.
All Grange products carry a 10 year guarantee against rot and the timber has the FSC logo to certify that it has come from well managed forests.
Famous for their fencing which comes in many different designs to really change the appearance of your borders, the people from Grange also showed us their metal gates and railings which are galvanised and powder coated for corrosion resistance.
We came away from Grange thoroughly impressed by the diverse nature of their timber products and there commitment to the future. After nearly a century and a half, Grange continue to offer traditional quality coupled with contemporary design.
