Hasn’t the time flown! Spring is inching closer and closer, and we’re noticing quite a bit of colour out, about and around. Despite two snows so far, we’re noticing quite a lot of daffodils popping their heads up – a sure sign that spring is coming. It’s not just the daffodils which are indicating that spring is on its way – the clocks are due to go back next week, the skies are getting lighter, and we’re starting to get quite a few enquiries for our stock!
As such, we’ve been working extra hard in our workshop in North Wales to produce new garden furniture, folding and heavy duty greenhouse staging in order to keep up with the demand. We’ve put together a small list of our essential items for the spring and summer season, so you can bring some much needed love to your garden for the warmer season.
Without further ado, here’s our list of the top garden products at Greenhouse Staging for 2018.
1 – Adirondack Chairs
Our range of Adirondack Chairs are doubly good for the environment, via the fact that they’re made from recycled plastic and can be recycled again. It’s becoming more and more apparent that plastic waste is a major worldwide problem, and certainly for us, last years’ Blue Planet didn’t leave us with dry eyes.
It is estimated that every year, 8 million metric tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean, being eaten by fish and sea birds by mistake, and eventually killing them. When you look at your next garden set, do you want to see it in the ocean, years after you’re gone, or a guilt-free (and gorgeous!) garden chair set that you’re proud of? We’re betting it’s the latter.
2 – Banana Benches
For those looking for a traditional (but unique!) touch to their garden, we manufacture and produce a stunning banana bench from teak. This stylish bench is delivered fully assembled (ensuring no frustration with a drill!) and is long-lasting, to ensure that year after year, it will look its very best.
A small tip: After some years, it will take on a silvery hue due to the amount of oxidants in the air. Have no fear! Your banana bench can be brightened right up again with a generous application of teak oil.
3 – Vintage Marine Portholes
One of the very best things about spring for us is nautical styling. It’s just so cute and cheerful, and it’s not just for your clothing. Nautical themes look great at home and also in the garden, with the help of our own reclaimed porthole windows.
We don’t just manufacture garden furniture – while the majority of our stock is indeed crafted in our warehouse in North Wales, we do also source varying bits and bobs of interest – and our vintage portholes are certainly interesting. Whether you wish to use them externally or internally, they’re perfect for your garden – genuine, sturdy (and rather heavy!) you don’t have to worry about them taking off at the slightest gust of wind.
