Onward and upward – new pergolas and arbours from Forest

Forest, the UK’s number one supplier of garden timber products, has just brought out two new additions to its range of garden structures, providing further inspiration for homeowners looking to take their garden design to another level. 

Pergolas and arbours are stand out features that can transform even the most unexciting outdoor spaces.   The ideal way to create an instant and long lasting focal point in the garden, both provide a designated area for solitude and silence, or socialising and celebrations.

The value of a house can be seriously affected by the space around it; neglected lawns, invasive species such as Japanese Knotweed or ramshackle sheds will both make things difficult for those selling their houses.  On the other hand, installing attractive garden structures like a pergola or an arbour could help to increase the value of the property by up to ten times that of the product itself.

The word ‘Pergola’ actually originates from the Latin word to go forward – pergere – and when it comes to moving ahead with improving the look and layout of your garden, you’ll be doing just that with these brand new designs from Forest.The sky’s the limit!

 Forest Portico Pergola

A ‘portico’ literally means a covered walkway or entrance to a building – but this brand new pergola design, featuring a unique double arching roof commands a place in the centre of the garden for all to see.  At 2.8m tall, this structure adds another dimension to the garden – especially important if you want to create the illusion of space and help lessen the impact that removing trees can have.  Its tiered arches provide shade and an excellent frame over which to train suitably tall climbers such as hops or vines.  A contemporary, grand statement that will provide years of interest and enjoyment, add value to your property and make you feel great about your garden.

Available from garden centres, DIY stores and online – find your nearest stockist on Forest’s website: www.forestgarden.co.uk/retailerfinder

 Lyon Arbour

A decorative throne from which to peacefully reign over the garden, this fully functional item of garden furniture includes a trellis surround for climbing plants and a sturdy roof to keep rain and fierce sunrays at bay.  But perhaps the most interesting aspect is the handy storage chest built in beneath the seat, ideal for stashing cushions, blankets, books and other knickknacks.

Available from garden centres, DIY stores and multiple online retailers.

 Forest sells a wide range of FSC timber garden products, all available to view and order on online at http://www.forestgarden.co.uk.
