by | Sep 21, 2017 | News | 0 comments

Forest Garden?s showroom at its Hartlebury headquarters near Kidderminster is ready to welcome retailers to preview the company?s 2018 product range.

The newly revamped showroom is a great space to showcase products, both existing ranges and brand new.

A key focus for 2018 is the growing demand for storage solutions, Forest has its new range of innovative outdoor storage units on display.? The range offers something for anyone looking for additional outdoor storage without committing to a full size shed.

From a compact low level garden storage box to large outdoor stores the models in the range are available in either overlap or shiplap timber cladding, with apex or pent roof designs, and are pressure treated to protect against rot.

Each unit has been designed with both aesthetics and functionality in mind so that they will look good when placed anywhere outside the house or around the garden. Clever design features include pent roofs that can be assembled with the pitch sloping back or forward as required. As well as being designed by Forest?s in-house team the new range is proudly manufactured in the UK at the Hartlebury factory.

The new collection for 2018 also features new on-trend planter designs, including the 3-tiered Plant Ladder Display which provides extra growing space for small outside areas.? Luxury round timber Gazebos and a newly designed Venetian Pavilion will also be introduced, offering consumers the opportunity to extend their living space at an affordable cost.

In total, there are over 30 new products set for launch next year ? many of which are on display in the new 500 square metre showroom.

?We are delighted to welcome customers to our updated facility, it?s really impressive.? We have re-designed the layout to make it easier for our customer to see the products, their quality and how they function,? said Nicola Simpson, head of marketing at Forest Garden.

2017 marks Forest?s 50th anniversary, which it celebrated with a show garden at RHS Hampton Court Flower Show, designed with a theme of a Great British summer garden party and championed the company?s tagline ?making British gardens great?. It highlighted Forest?s position as a leader in the industry and showcased the breadth of products available.

The majority of the timber used for the company?s products is grown and felled from managed UK forests across Scotland and Wales and cut and processed at one of the company?s nearby sawmills.? All the timber used is fully FSC approved and carries its seal of approval.
