About UsForest Garden Ltd is the UK’s leading manufacturer and distributor of garden timber products, primarily garden buildings, fencing, decking and decorative garden structures. The business has two main brands, Forest and Larchlap. Forest brand has its heritage within garden centre retailers and has long been synonymous with quality garden products. Today this range can still be found in many garden centres, builders merchants and DIY stores up and down the UK. The Larchlap brand is our popular no-nonsense, no fuss trade range of products. All manufactured in the UK using locally sourced timber, this range of products can be found in trade merchant outlets nationwide.
Since the late nineties the business has seen many changes through acquisition and organic growth. In 2006 a new management structure integrated a number of operational processes to ensure faster response to market demands - while retaining an absolute commitment to the further development of both the Forest and Larchlap brands.
The company now operates two separate divisions, Forest Garden and Forest Sawmills, the latter operating out of two sites with the largest being based in Lockerbie, Scotland and has the largest specialist fencing sawmill in the country.
Forest Garden is the manufacturing and distribution arm of the business and is based in Hartlebury, Worcestershire. It proudly boasts the largest manufacturing and distribution sites in its sector from where it delivers weekly to over 3,000 retail outlets in peak season. In addition to that, it also operates an industry leading home delivery service which delivers a staggering 100,000 units per annum.
