David Coton was delighted to recently meet with Frank Honald, President and Owner of Henri Studio USA, who had flown in from Chicago to discuss the opportunity of bringing their products back into the UK next year.
Grange are introducing several new fence panels and gates in 2017 and Andy Taylor has been looking at these fresh additions to their already impressive collection of timber products.
Grange has been making timber fencing and related products for more than 140 years, and they are continually adding new items that match traditional quality with modern design.
This year sees their Contemporary range expanded to include Vogue panels in two sizes and a Vogue gate. Their design features a strong mortice & tenon jointed frame and slats on both sides that are planed and rounded.
Substantial and very durable, the panels and gate will ensure your garden's privacy in a most attractive way and can be used in conjunction with the collection's arch, arbour and planters.
With a choice of three widths, Elite Meloir double driveway gates can complement St. Meloir Fence Panels to create a fabulous first impression for your visitors. Very distinctive with a waved lattice on top, the gates are substantial as well as decorative with mortice & tenon joints again ensuring strength and stability.
Two new Ultimate fence panels and a braced gate are sturdily constructed in the same manner, with the timber fine sawn for a smooth finish.
The Elite Lille Panel, which has planed clean-cut straight slats and a horizontal trellis top, completes the new year's introductions.
You can be assured that these new additions, as with all Grange products, use FSC timber that has been pressure treated for rot resistance and they come with a ten-year guarantee.
Clouds usually have a silver lining and, as we slowly but surely start to live normal lives again, our taste for preparing succulent meals in our own outdoor space will be satisfied by a new range of barbecues and modular kitchens from market leaders Napoleon.
Although the days are short and the view from our Garden Centre is dull and overcast, David Coton suggests that getting out into the garden is one of the few pleasures we can enjoy while social distancing restrictions are still in place.
There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites in 2021. However, during the current government restrictions don't be surprised to see repeats filling gaps in a depleted schedule and other programmes adopting a different format..
There was a time when entertaining outside meant firing up a modest garden barbecue, but that's all going to change with the introduction of a fabulous range of outdoor kitchens from those Aussie BBQ specialists, Beefeater.
