Zest 4 Leisure have always offered a popular range of timber garden furniture and this week at GLEE, the garden industry's leading trade show, David Coton had the opportunity to review their new products for 2018.
When the weather becomes too cold and damp to sit outside or host a barbecue it's also time to safeguard your garden furniture, Nathan James Dodd reviews the covers that offer protection from wind, rain and snow until spring arrives.
Over the colder, wetter months you have to ensure that valuable garden furniture and equipment is protected against the elements. The problem is that some are fixed into place and you may not be have enough storage space to bring other items inside. This means that covers are an essential investment.
Bosmere are the major manufacturer of waterproof and UV stabilised outdoor waterproof covers for all kinds of garden furniture. Their circular and rectangular patio set covers are manufactured from top quality material with a wipe clean surface. Different sizes are available for 4 – 10 seater patio tables, and they come in square and rectangular shapes. Brass coated eyelets, strings and cord locks enable for effective fastening.
Furniture covers of all types and sizes are specially shaped to fit specific items. Benches, folding chairs, armchairs and sun loungers are also no problem with Bosmere Cover Up and Premier furniture covers. Whether they are giant or just large, parasols can be protected as well as variously designed patio heaters including chimeneas.
If you have children, they'll be unhappy that the trampoline will be out of bounds for a while but relieved to know that a trampoline cover will keep it in perfect condition until the following year. Hammocks and swings can also be covered but probably more important to adults will be the barbecue.
Barbecue covers come in various sizes to fit a basic kettle BBQ to the largest super grills. And it's not only winter protection that's important, summer rain showers aren't exactly unknown, and these hardwearing covers are perfect to use all year round.
