Following on from GardenSite's successful television advertisements earlier in the year, Senior Partner Robert Hall explains why terrestrial TV is being used for the first time in the current campaign.
Massarelli’s have entered the UK water feature and fountain market, gracing our gardens with their American made fine stone products which are beautifully detailed and built to last.
The Massarelli’s Lawn Ornaments brand was born in 1972 when Mario Massarelli was just 17 years of age on a three acre site in Egg Harbor City, New Jersey.
Mario is self taught and did everything himself to begin with, he designed the products, made moulds and even sold his fountains to the trade and the public.
The business grew and in 1994 they moved to a 100,000 square foot facility on 12 acres in Hammonton, New Jersey. In 1996 25 more acres were added to this site to account for growth.
Over 40 years have passed since a young Mario started his business and today he is still hands-on, enjoying the pleasure of seeing his business as a passion and not actually work. He has a hand in every Massarelli product that comes to market, something he prides himself on.
Massarelli's offer an extensive range of products that includes fountains, bird baths and statues. They tell us that they believe this is the reason for their success, they already offer a large range of products in the UK which they hope to increase in the coming years.
Every Massarelli’s fountain is American made which means high quality and they all come with their own pump so you can set your new fountain up right away. Selected products also come with lights so you can enjoy your water features day or night.
You can choose from small fountainettes to their very large 3 or 4 tier fountains which have their own pool, perfect as a centrepiece in a large garden, driveway or even somewhere such as a wedding venue.
Massarelli’s range of fountains are all available for delivery to your home and will arrive on a pallet. They’re extremely well packed, wrapped in sack cloth and then the whole pallet is black wrapped too.

If you're interested in viewing any of the Massarelli's fountains or bird baths before purchasing you can see them on display at our Sutton Coldfield garden centre which is open seven days a week. Telephone: 0121 355 7701.
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.
