Garden structures for mini summer makeovers

In the summertime gardens tend to become an extension of our living space, we use them to relax, eat and play, and with all that fun stuff to do any updates need to be quick and easy.

Forest Garden has selected five products that can be installed and styled in less than a day making them ideal for those weekend mini-makeovers.



Update tired plastic or metal seating with a beautiful wooden bench, the Forest range includes two traditional designs, the Harvington or Rosedene, each is made from smooth planed timber for a splinter-free finish.

The Harvington uses chunky wood and has an attractive curved slatted back, choose from either 4ft or 5ft benches or a Love Seat, which includes two chairs and a connected table. The classic Rosedene range features a straight back and arm rest, this design is also available in single chairs and a dining table. Accessorise benches with colourful cushions or a draped throw to create the perfect spot to relax.


An arbour is the ultimate multifunctional structure and will transform any space. The integrated arch and bench can be used as a centrepiece in the garden. The beautifully curved wooden arch can be used to grow climbing plants or to hook lighting on to. Place in the centre of a garden or against a wall. There is enough space on the bench for two people just add an ice bucket and some cold drinks on a warm evening.

Plant Ladder

This is much more than just somewhere to display plants. Placed against a wall it becomes a focal point of the garden and the plants can be changed to match the season. It can double up as a garden divider and, if decked out with lights, it becomes a delightful night-time feature.

Linear planters

Forest Garden’s range of contemporarily designed planters bring a fresh, modern dimension to any garden. Available in four sizes, the planters can house permanent plant displays or be changed to match the season – throughout the year.

Ultima Pergola Arch

Forest Garden’s high quality Ultima Pergola Arch is another structural piece that will add a contemporary look and feel to your garden. Gardeners can grow beautiful climbing plants across the arch to create a stunning visual and scented walk way.
