Create the ultimate outdoor dining experience this summer

pergolaSummer in the garden: it’s all about relaxing, having friends over, family fun, drinks, and eating al fresco every opportunity you get. With Forest, the UK’s leading manufacturer of quality FSC timber garden products, you’ll want to be outside all summer long thanks to the company’s stunning range of structures and features that are designed to create the perfect outdoor entertainment space.

Set the scene with a Dining Pergola

Forest’s Dining Pergola RRP from £456.99 So many of your photos from this summer, and many more to come, will feature the area in which you entertain your guests – so it’s really important to have something that provides an attractive background. With Forest’s Dining Pergola (RRP £456.99), you get a modern, stylish framework that looks great in any location, at any time of the year. Its vertical design is ideal for climbing plants – perennials like clematis or annuals such as sweet peas can be grown in containers at each corner.  Two panels can be added to create extra shade and privacy as well as adding a contemporary feel to the overall structure.

Other pergolas from Forest include the Venetian Pavilion, which is available with decking for RRP £1,599, or without for RRP £999.99.

Create a stage for sizzling performances

It’s a cliché that the man of the house is always the one to take control of the BBQ – it’s actually more apt to say that it’s the member of the family that most wants to show off!  Whether you want to honour them by creating a special area for them to serve up some spectacular sausages, or set up a barrier from their burnt burgers – the Forest Garden/BBQ Shelter (RRP £419.99) is a must have. The unique vented roof keeps everyone dry and warm, whilst also allowing smoke and odours to escape.  The BBQ king or queen will love being surrounded by guests, made comfortable with the provision of extra wide rails designed to accommodate drinks and plates.

New Double Sleeper Bench furniture

If you are looking for versatile, hardwearing furniture to suit any type of garden – take a look at Forest’s new range of double sleeper modular furniture.

 The Double Sleeper Benches, which can be placed on any surface – decking, gravel, patios or grass, come in various sizes and are designed to work together complementing Forest’s wider product portfolio.  Sizes range from 0.9m (RRP £89.99), to 1.2m (RRP £104.99), 1.5m (RRP £109.99) and 1.8m (RRP £114.99).  These can be used in conjunction with the Low Sleeper Table 0.7m (RRP £99.99) and 1.2m (RRP £139.99), to create a socialising area that is perfect for a party, or simply just sharing a pot of tea.  The Double Sleeper Planter/Table (RRP £59.99) can be used as a corner table for drinks or a stand for plant pots – but can also be inverted and used as a planter to create an entirely unique seating arrangement.

Each double sleeper product is manufactured and pressure treated in the UK from FSC timber, and comes guaranteed against rot for 15 years.
