Autumn Garden Pond Project

Autumn can be a good time to build a pond. Some years the weather is quite sunny and pleasant, and the ground can be softer, making it easier to dig a hole. A pond in autumn can look very calm and relaxing as it reflects the golden colours of the season.

Covid delivery info

All large timber products, such as sheds etc are currently not available. The only wooden products available for delivery are garden arches.

Gravel and paving circles are currently not available.

Water butts and composters are available, but they are taking longer to deliver than normal times featured on the product pages. Eg, a 200 litre double water butt kit takes about 7 days usually, but might take up to 3 weeks at the moment due to couriers being very busy, slower warehouse dispatch due to social distancing and higher demand than normal. The two largest products the 350 litre water butt and the 330 litre composter do not go by courier as they are oversized, instead they go by haulier lorry network, Even in normal times they average about 14 days for delivery. Currently they could take up to 1 month.

Preformed ponds, pond liners, solar water features and solar pond fountains all have the fastest delivery times of everything for sale. In normal times they can be with customers next day. In some cases this is still happening, but with courier delays in some areas, it would be best to say 1 to 6 days for delivery at the moment.

New Wooden Greenhouse Sizes added

Some new sizes of wooden greenhouses are now available. They are delivered in large sections which just need to be joined together. The panels are durable styrene so you don't need to worry about breaking glass when you are putting the greenhouse together, or when kids breaking glass when playing in the garden. (I remember as a kid trying to lock my sister out of my grandpa's greenhouse, and we were struggling with the door handle, me on the inside and sister on the outside, and the door slammed and cracked the glass. I think it's the one and only time i got told off by my grandpa.) So with styrene windows this sort of problem can be avoided!

The frames are wood, which as a natural material blends in well with gardens. Available in the grow your own section.
