Forest Garden launches new garden building range

Forest's new Garden Buildings Collection now feature a new range of sheds and workshops, many of which have been redesigned and enhanced with improved build quality and security features such as hidden hinges and unbreakable polycarbonate glazing.

Forest Garden sales and marketing director John Gomersall said: "Our shed offering is one area that has benefitted the most from a makeover for 2016.  The new range will benefit from a clear product hierarchy, that offers simple trade-up options for the consumer. Retailers will also benefit from this development, as it makes it much easier for them to sell higher value products to increase sales values."

There are four collections: Overlap Dip Treated, Overlap Pressure Treated, Shiplap Dip Treated and Premium Tongue & Groove.


All collections feature felted roofs, barge boards, finials, double z-framing and polycarbonate glazing, except the high-end Tongue & Groove collection which benefits from premium acrylic glazing.  The mid-range Overlap Pressure-treated and Shiplap Dip Treated ranges have the addition of boarded flooring, whilst the Tongue & Groove designs also exclusively benefit from premium hinges, rimlock, and tongue & groove flooring.


The bestselling Shiplap 6 x 8 Apex design is the only design to feature Onduline corrugated roofing material.


Each collection also offers flexibility of roof designs, with both pent and apex designs available. In total 47 different sheds are available as part of Forest’s updated shed range.

Finally, Forest has added shed bases to its offering, providing easy to fit bases for its most popular shed sizes.
