With gardens becoming smaller, neighbours closer and roads busier, we all suffer from different types of noise pollution. But, as Andy Taylor reports, Forest have now come up with a new kind of fencing that minimizes this nuisance.
The Ultimate range of fencing is the new offering from Grange and, as David Coton explains, this is a collection of contemporary lap panels that is already receiving increasing attention from our customers.
Grange are one of the leading UK fencing and timber product manufacturers, and the success of the Ultimate Fence Panel range can be attributed to this premium product being available at a very affordable price.
Using innovative design features, Grange have re-engineered the traditional lap panel, increasing both its attractiveness and functionality.
The 6ft wide panels are available in four heights from 0.9m - 1.8m, and there is also a similarly styled 1.8m gate.
Straight cut slats are fine sawn and boast a superb smooth finish, they sit within a neat yet substantial 40mm rebated frame.
Mortice & tenon joints improve the panel's stability even further, making Ultimate perhaps the most durable fencing currently available, especially as all the timber is pressure treated.
There's still time this summer to completely revamp the appearance of your garden with these contemporary panels and enjoy the difference they are sure to make.
But, with autumn not not too far off, perhaps you should also consider replacing any worn out fencing with something that is much better looking and ultimately far more durable.
If you want to completely overhaul your garden's appearance, and that of any outdoor space, there is also Grange's collection of planters, panels, arches and arbours.
Eye catching enhancements that are part of their Contemporary range, pre-painted timber products that can create elegant areas for relaxation and entertainment.
All these stylish products can stand alone or be formed into a cohesive design, they represent excellent value for money for what are high quality products.
In October, David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that you should also now be planning ahead for next year.
At GLEE this year David Coton visited the VegTrug stand to find out how their specially designed space saving planters can encourage us to grow more of our own food without the use of pesticides.
Forest have been making high quality timber garden products for over half a century and at GLEE David Coton had the chance to see their brand new storage range that has recently been launched.
Everyone should be serious about encouraging wildlife, and whether you focus on pollinating bees, pest devouring birds or slug eating hedgehogs, David Hall has been looking at the products that Wildlife World design and manufacture to aid their conservation.
