How does your dad spend his spare time? Is he an avid veggie gardener? Does he love a DIY project in the garden? And can he often be found kicking back with a beer at the end of a long day, surveying his plot? If your father loves being in his garden, Forest Garden has gift ideas galore for Father’s Day.
Give the gift of ‘me time’
What man doesn’t long for a man cave? Somewhere quiet and uniquely his, away from the hurly burly of family life. Forest Garden’s new range of Overlap sheds are supremely flexible, with panels that are the same size, meaning the customer can choose where to position the windows and which side to hang the door. They all offer plenty of head room and the doors are reinforced with double Z framing to prevent door drop and improve security. Solid timber floors are standard on all Overlap models. With a huge range to choose from there is size to suit everyone. The smallest shed is 4 x 3 feet (RRP. £199.99) and largest is 10 x 20 foot (RRP. £1119.99).
