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.
Love Your Garden is returning for a sixth series and David Hall previews how the team once again use Grange timber structures to create delightful gardens.
Starting on 28 June, Grange products feature in all six episodes as Alan Titchmarsh and his colleagues transform outdoor spaces with planting schemes and outdoor structures.
They first visit a 90 year old former ballroom dancer who is now too frail to look after her garden. By the end of the programme, the neglected landscape can once again be tended and enjoyed.
A bold colour scheme is then devised for an eight year old in Nottingham who has been receiving hospital treatment for six years. A safe garden will aid her recovery and that's just what is created with surprise spaces for children to discover.
Previous series have featured the Grange Flower Circle that can be used on their own as a distinctive garden feature or, when planted at the base of each arch with climbers, to form a scent and colour filled walkway.
This time around, alongside existing ranges, Grange's new Urban and Contemporary collections are featured - planters, screens and garden pergolas whose high quality planed timber will introduce clean lines and innovative style into your garden.
Screens can delineate different garden areas, while pergolas are wonderful places in which to relax, benefiting from lovely dappled shade created by the slatted roof and sides. Planters complement these features and introduce colourful interest.
Love Your Garden is on ITV at 8.00 for six weeks from Tuesday 28 June. If you are inspired by what you see, why not see the whole range of Grange products on GardenSite.

It was quite an honour for GardenSite to be asked to supply the Christmas Tree to Birmingham New Street Station this year, and to celebrate we're offering a Champagne High Tea to the winners of a seasonal selfie competition.
With Storm Caroline reeking havoc many people are likely to be contacting their insurance companies at some time regarding damage caused to sheds, greenhouses, fences and other garden property. Robert Hall explains how GardenSite.co.uk can help with an independent insurance quote and claim.
