Wooden awnings

Are you fawning for a new type of awning? Looking for something that wood make your garden stand out? Well, Primrose is here to cover you once again. We’re delighted to roll out our stunning range of new wooden awnings.

After being inspired by the traditional store front awnings on our research trips around London, we developed this collection of DIY wooden awnings exclusive to Primrose.

The new look

The full wooden cassette, which protects the awning canopy from the elements when retracted, is supported by black powder-coated steel arms and chain.

With a wooden casing, these awnings have a look that harkens back to traditional design and craftsmanship. They have a distinct, tactile feel, bringing a level of class to your garden that sets them apart from the regular awnings.

Why wooden?

As our awnings buyer says, ‘Wooden awnings would add a nice touch of character to the garden compared to normal metal casings. The beauty of the softwood cassette will complement the surroundings.’

The specs

The wood frame is crafted from Scots pine, a softwood which will age gracefully when left exposed to the elements. It has been treated against rot and decay so will last for years to come. Made using only FSC certified timber, a guaranteed sustainable supply.

The awning fabric is waterproof and has UPF 50+ protection, so will shelter you come rain or shine. It is available in ivory and charcoal colours. All our wooden awnings also come with a detachable valance.

George’s idea of the perfect time in the garden is a long afternoon sitting in the shade with a good book. A cool breeze, peace and quiet… But of course, he’s usually disturbed by his energetic wire fox terrier, Poppy!

He writes about his misadventures in repotting plants and new discoveries about cat repellers.

Garden Sleepers are the perfect construction material for any DIY garden transformation, as they are great value-for-money and extremely versatile, for use in a wide of projects, from raised beds to decking.

Now, Primrose is offering their own garden sleepers with three woods – brown softwood, green softwood and premium hardwood oak – at thicknesses 10, 12.5 and 13cm. Our major selling point is that the cost of delivery – £4.99 – remains the same, regardless of quantity ordered. This can prove great value for money at large quantities and your sleepers will arrive next working day.

All our sleepers are produced from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified timber and are pressure treated, so you can expect decades of use and feel comfortable they are sourced sustainably. They are also brand new and hence free from oily muck commonly found on used railway sleepers.

We are very excited to bring these to the market and hope Primrose continues to enable dream garden transformations at reasonable prices!

Recently, a few of the marketing team ventured over to the Green Isle for important business activity, but I couldn’t help but spot a handful of unique planters scattered around.

As most of you know, Primrose is the largest supplier of garden planters, so my spidey senses were tingling, and the creativity and innovation inside me was going off.

Which is your favourite?
