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.
Grange have a long history of manufacturing decorative timber garden structures. Their new Urban and Contemporary collections feature the type of sharp, clean lines that Nathan James Dodd thinks will benefit any modern landscape.
Grange have a long history of manufacturing decorative timber garden structures. Their new Urban and Contemporary collections feature the type of sharp, clean lineswhich GardenSite believe will benefit any modern landscape.
Although with a long history, Grange have always been at the forefront of garden design and their Urban and Contemporary collections have the ability to enhance a modern garden or transform a traditional one.
Both ranges emphasise the creation of 'garden rooms' or zones, distinct areas that maximise the use that's made of the garden.
These can be for relaxing, entertaining or other activities. Grange have set out to provide screens, arches, planters and other structures that delineate these areas.
'Defining your garden’ is at the heart of Grange’s philosophy and its extensive choice of products enables homeowners to do just that, no matter what their style or garden size.
The Urban range can be viewed as minimalist with its clean sharp lines, and it's certainly eye-catching. Garden screens allow you to zone off areas but keep an open aspect, this is achieved through the use of bold slats that also let through plenty of light.
To add interest there's the Urban Screen Planter which has a large planting area and and the same strongly defined slatted trellis to support climbers and hanging baskets.
An Urban Arch can be the gateway into another 'room' while the Urban Timber Garden Pergola provides a significant private area with dappled shade.

The Contemporary collection is equally stylish but perhaps more appropriate for larger gardens.
There's a beautiful Contemporary Wooden Garden Arch with rounded and chamfered edges, smooth curves and a domed roof. This can be used over a walkway and is perfect to decorate with climbing plants.
The straight lines of the Contemporary Garden Arbour are complemented by an arched roof, a lovely place to relax, and the Square Planter can be used to add extra interest.
Combining materials in a thoroughly modern way, the Fusion Trellis features both metal and timber, and the result is robust and aesthetically pleasing. Finally, a Contemporary Panel is an attractive alternative to a traditional panel to conceal an area or create an elegant boundary.
