Log burners and open fires have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity over the past few years. Andy Taylor explains how you can have a continuous supply of dry, well seasoned, wood by investing in a log store.
Palmako are one of Europe's leading manufacturers of garden buildings of many different styles that all use high quality Nordic timber, and David Coton is pleased that GardenSite can now offer their new versatile and beautifully constructed product range..
Based in the Baltic state of Estonia, Palmako are surrounded by vast forests. The company is part of a group that take trees from their own plantations and then process the timber in the saw mills that they own all the way through to the final product.

You might not be familiar with the UK Men's Sheds Association but this is a fast growing organisation that, as David Coton discovered, encourages camaraderie and a sense of achievement among its members.
The Wildlife Aid Foundation recently purchased several animal ornaments from GardenSite and David Coton, one of our partners, thought that this charity carried out such terrific work that we made a charitable donation to assist with the cost.
With high winds increasingly affecting most parts of Britain, many people are likely to be contacting their insurance companies at some time regarding damage caused to sheds, greenhouses, fences and other garden property.
