Zest a Finalist in GIMA Awards

Outdoor wood furniture, decorative garden structures and timber ‘GYO’ specialist, Zest 4 Leisure was twice a finalist in the Outdoor Leisure category at the GIMA Awards with its Burghley and Chepstow Arbours. The awards ceremony took place on 11th November at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales.

Launched at Glee in 2020 and already a multi-award winner, the Burghley (see below) has an extra deep canopy which is not only stylish, but which provides additional shelter to extend the time spent in the garden. Part of the Zest 4 Leisure Easy Build range, it is also especially quick and simple to build.

Among numbers of other recent products, it is part of an expanding range focused on convenience for the consumer. Designed using DFMA (Designed for Manufacture and Assembly) principles, it is all about using fewer components which are more easily put together.

The Chepstow Arbour (below) is all about sunshine and natural light. It has an airy, high arched canopy made from quality diamond trellis allowing a 360-degree panoramic view of the garden, all from a comfortable, stylish seat. With the diamond trellis casting beautifully patterned shadows, it is also a stunning garden feature and a real statement piece.

Commenting on Zest’s latest GIMA accolade, Simon Davison, Zest’s Head of Commercial Development said:

We are delighted to be recognised by such an esteemed panel of judges, especially given the high standard of submissions overall. As a company specialising in the natural beauty of slow-grown softwood, we have just invested over £400,000 in top product designers and in our new product development centre, so it is great to see our innovation strategy paying off.
