August is  “National Romance Awareness Month”.

Most people are romantic at heart even if they refuse to acknowledge it, this applies to a lot of our customers too going by some of the items they have bought over the past few months!

This week we thought we would have a run through some of our most popular products which have been designed with romance in mind. You might even find something to ignite your passionate side – who knows!?

First up is our Paris Loveseat.

The Paris Love Seat

The Paris Love Seat

The French capital is of course considered by many to be one of the most romantic places in Europe with its countless restaurants and art galleries. In fact a recent poll showed that the top of the Eiffel Tower is one of the most popular places to propose marriage  in the whole world!   All of this should spring to mind when you and a partner are relaxing in this attractive seat, it has a laid back style for optimum comfort and both seats are connected by a central table – just right for a nice bottle of red wine and a couple of glasses.

Along similar lines to the Paris is our Emily Love Seat.

The Emily Love Seat

The Emily Love Seat

This outstanding model is manufactured with FSC certified wood  and has a ten year guarantee against rot. This seat also has a central table for drinks, flowers or books but the seats are angled slightly toward each other, which of course can encourage coversation between its occupants.

Another variation on this design is the Frecan.

Frecan Wicker Love Seat

Frecan Wicker Love Seat

This double seater is made with wicker and includes soft grey cushions in the price (one per seat). The construction of this seat is very light which is ideal if you wish to move this seat around at different times of the day (to either sit in the sun or avoid it). The seat is finished in an anthracite grey colour and is completely water proof, frost proof and tear resistant.

The Poseidon Swing Seat is a more traditional spin in our romantic thread.

Poseidon Garden Swing Seat

Poseidon Garden Swing Seat

This delightful two seater is manufactured from high quality planed timber sourced from managed forests. As the name suggests, the seat on this product swings backwards and forwards which in itself is very relaxing. The Poseidon also has solid roof sections which can provide a little  shelter while strengthening the structure of the seat further. Did we mention that it is also on special offer!? save £30 until the end of August!

Another avenue worth exploring could be the trusty picnic  blanket which is ideal for day trips or a surprise soirée at the park or by the seaside.

We have one picnic blanket available and this is the Molly

The Molly All Purpose Blanket

.

This is waterproof thanks to its coated underside and has insulated padding made from 200g/m2 hollow fibre and a cuddly flannel surface.This blanket features practical clips for ease of transportation and, thanks to a zip, the headpiece can be converted in to an extra cushion.

So there you go! Romance is the theme this month so why not treat yourself and your partner to one of our romantic, lazy day items and enjoy the lovely weather while we still have it!

Have A Sheltered Life With A Kiosk Gazebo

The Kiosk Gazebo Range.

One of our most popular sellers in the past few months is without a doubt our Kiosk Gazebo range.

Gazebos are excellent additions to any garden as they protect against rain and snow while allowing you to enjoy your garden whatever the weather. They are particularly useful if you are hosting a party with many guests where indoor space may be at a premium, another good idea for these structures is to place a dining table underneath to eat your meals outdoors (particularly nice on a pleasant summers evening).

Solid Kiosk Gazebo 2.80m x 2.80m (9'2 x 9'2)

Solid Kiosk Gazebo 2.80m x 2.80m (9’2 x 9’2)

A nice feature on the square / rectangular models is the pyramid style roof which comes with the option of different colour shingles (choose from grey, green or red). The supporting posts are manufactured with sturdy wood sourced from a sustainable FSC approved sites and comes pressure treated to protect against rot.

 

Octagonal Gazebo

As well as the standard square / rectangular variety we also have hexagonal and octagonal versions available. The hexagonal and octagonal models each come with attractive diamond lattice work and  a  distinctive slatted roof which creates a decorative centre piece for your garden (not to mention a real talking point too)

Smoking Area

Smoking Shelter

 

One popular use for the Kiosks is as a smoking shelter for pubs and restaurants, you may see a few of these on your travels if you like to socialise and eat out regularly.

 

 

Wooden Bench

Wooden Bench

 

Whether you are buying for your home garden or business you might be tempted to buy a bench to go under it. We have a vast range of wooden benches on our site, some of which are made by the same manufacturers as the gazebos above.

 

Garden Lighting at Taylors

Illuminated!

 

Maybe you could go one step further and buy some attractive lights to illuminate your gazebo at night or possibly even buy a selection of plants to decorate it further?  The possibilities for these wonderful structures is almost limitless.

 

Whatever you decide please feel more than welcome to send us your pictures of your new decorated gazebo in place!

We look forward to seeing them!!

The voting goes on….

As we said the other day, it has been near enough impossible to avoid the general election and the constant stream of party political broadcasts these past few weeks. We decided to do our own fun vote as to which were our best garden buildings.

We picked our favourite 3 sheds based on factors such as features and benefits, supplier support, price value and lead time for delivery.

Now the ballot continues with our three favourite summerhouses.

Our choice for the three best summerhouses in our range are as follows;

1.Popular Summerhouse

2.Prima Fifth Avenue

3.Denby Summerhouse

 

Popular Summerhouse

This has been a real hit with our customers, the classic design  suits most english gardens and it is available with or popular summerhopusewithout a verandah. There are 6 sizes available in this model from the smaller 5×7 up to the largest at 8×10. The manufacturer of this range of summerhouses deliver and install their buildings to a majority of england and this is all included in the price. This is not only excellent value for money but eliminates the stress and hassle of having to arrange an independent party to assemble the building. It is also delivered and installed on the same day. The cladding on these summerhouses is whitewood tongue and groove boarding with a sturdy rounded and planed frame, this framing is also incorporated in to the roof which is finished off with barge boards and green mineral felt.  The many optional extras (including a generous selection of paint finishes) means that you can create a building to suit your garden decor and reflect your personality in its design.

Prima Fifth Avenue

One of the best features of this model is the pentagonal shape which means it can be placed in any part of your garden including the corner. If you prefer a more non-classic design of building for your garden this one is a real contender and its modern style can be adapted to suit your tastes, primathere is a selection of roof colours to choose from and a choice of chrome or brass fittings. Other options include different colour stains and a choice of three finials (a ball or one of two stylish weather vanes – a witch or cockerel). I have always been a fan of these buildings and the feedback we have received from our customers means that they are all fans too! If you come to our garden centre one of the first buildings you will see is a Prima, that proves just how highly we regard this model.

Denby Summerhouse

Another modern styled building, the Denby has a sturdy shiplap tongue and groove construction over a rounded and planed framework. The interior of this summerhouse is very spacious and the abundance of toughened SONY DSCglass to the front means that it will get a lot of light all through the daylight hours. This building is an outstanding garden feature and comes inclusive of joinery made doors and windows and redwood cladding. The manufacturers of this remarkable building offer a delivery and installation service which is included in the price for many parts of mainland england. This means that you can get the whole package at the click of a button – delivered and built all in one go!

Next time we will take a look at our three top Log Cabins – see you then!

 

 

Fred’s Shed. A poem about sheds

Fred’s shed

A Man’s home is his Castle
which you may have heard or read
but to Fred the place he loves the most
is his very own Garden Shed.
This structure he made from wood
is where he likes to be
inside he can set the World to right
over a sandwich and a mug of tea.
Yes his Shed is looking a bit ramshackle
and luxurious it definitely ain’t
what with the roof needing repairing
not to mention a good old lick of paint.
But Fred’s shed is his sanctum
where he goes to get some space
inside it’s like a small Bedsit
with a comfy chair and a Bookcase.
So if you don’t see him in his House
and think could old Fred even be dead?
don’t worry he’s alive and well
he’s probably moved into his beloved Shed!
