ÖÖD House Launch At ‘The Landscape Show’

17 September 2018 in

Find us exhibiting at stand CP36 at The Landscape Show, where our new, state-of-the-art ÖÖD house is making its UK debut.

Developed by Estonian company ÖÖD- and now exclusively distributed and assembled by ourselves in the UK - the 18/m2 mini dwelling was originally envisaged as a pop-up hotel room or Airbnb pad but can also be used as an office, den or even yoga space.

The first ÖÖD house in the UK, available to purchase for £55,000 plus VAT, is currently in situ at Lime Cross Nursery in East Sussex for potential customers to view, or even stay in before purchasing.

The stunning, mirrored buildings which feature a steel frame, insulated glass and thermally treated wood are already proving popular with clients. The standard interior offers a studio layout with a kitchenette and bathroom as well as heated floors and LED lighting.

Established as one of the UK’s leading industry events, The Landscape Show, which runs from Tuesday 18th to Wednesday 19th September in London, attracts garden designers, landscaping professionals, architects, and interior designers from around the world.

Also exhibiting alongside us is our sister company The Pot Company, a leading wholesaler to the garden industry. Not only does it have over 30 years of experience in supplying garden industry professionals, it boasts over 30 ranges of planters in its vast collection and 150,000 pots at its warehouse in the Kent countryside.

We will also be showcasing our new range of thermo-treated decking and cladding at the show. Thermotreated.co.uk is a new division of our company which distributes Thermory® products throughout the UK.

The Thermory® range consists of decking boards, cladding, flooring, shingles and bathroom tiles, all of which have been heated and steamed at temperatures of up to 215°C in computer-controlled kilns. This process toughens the timber, ensures a low moisture content and develops a dark, luxurious colour, resulting in an attractive board that is extremely stable, even when cut from softwoods. Crucially, Thermory® also boast outstanding environmental credentials; their processes are entirely chemical free and are only applied to responsibly harvested raw materials. 

Director Jason Frost who will be attending the Landscape Show said: “It’s always a great pleasure to exhibit here and this year we are really excited to have some really innovative and interesting new products to showcase”.

Cumaru Decking Now Available

6 September 2018 in Oak & Decking Products

Our decking range continues to expand with the addition of Cumaru, a rot resistant hardwood with outstanding durability. 

Cumaru, also known as Brazilian teak or Tonka Bean, is native to Central and northern south America. It is one of the toughest timbers available on the market and is proven to excel in any temperature, making it perfect for outdoor use. 

Thanks to the tropical climate it is found in, not only does its range of benefits include it being rich in harbouring oils and rot resistant, it is also insect proof too. 

The wood’s golden-brown tan displays all the beauty and finesse of an interior hardwood while representing great value for those seeking good value, hard wearing decking that is durable in all weathers. 

Cumaru boasts a similar density to the timber and garden specialist’s top-quality and consistently popular Ipe decking, which due to it being three times harder than cedar, is often referred to as “ironwood”. 

Cumaru is available as 140 x 19mm smooth decking boards at £52.97 per m2 or as deck tiles (500mm x 500m x 30mm) at £17.40 each.

The “ÖÖD” House Summer Launch

1 August 2018 in Oak Framed Buildings

A Summer party hosted by ourselves celebrated the addition

of a new stunning, mirrored building to our collection.

 

Providing a striking backdrop to the event, the glass-fronted ‘ÖÖD’ house  wowed our VIP guests, clients and staff as they enjoyed an evening of wine and canapés at Lime Cross Nursery in Herstmonceux. Exclusive paintings and sculptures were also on display as potential customers viewed the impressive ÖÖD house for the first time.

Developed by Estonian company ÖÖD- and now exclusively distributed and assembled by ourselves in the UK - the 18/m2 mini dwelling was originally envisaged by its creators as a pop-up hotel room, Airbnb pad or standalone guest accommodation for homeowners.

But keen buyers have already been using them in a number of creative ways from offices to teenage dens to yoga spaces.

The first ÖÖD house in the UK will now remain in situ at Lime Cross Nursery for potential customers to view, or even stay in before purchasing.

The buildings feature a steel frame, insulated glass and thermally treated wood. The standard interior offers a studio layout with a kitchenette and bathroom.

Typically ÖÖD houses are hooked up to water, sewage, and electricity supply, but off-grid capabilities are under development. The houses are now available to purchase for £55,000 plus VAT, with a limited supply for the first few months.

 

Managing Director Zac Soudain said:

“We are really excited to add ÖÖD Houses to our collection as their only UK distributor and perhaps unsurprisingly they’ve already proved very popular.

“It was clear at the launch that these glass-fronted houses really have the wow factor and could be used for many purposes from pop-up accommodation to garden rooms to offices… they were generating a lot of excitement.

“They blend beautifully into any setting courtesy of the insulated glazing that covers the front and side while the rear elevation features eco-friendly thermo treated ash cladding, which also cleverly conceals a service void.

 

“Where they really come into their own is in a rural or natural landscape such as where our example ÖÖD house can be viewed at Lime Cross Nursery – it has been kept there since the launch potential customers can try before they buy.”

 

 Marketing material for The ÖÖD House is currently still being developed and will be available very soon. For any further information please contact the team on 01435 860 260 or send an email to sales@roundwood.com

Winning Stand at BBC Gardeners World Live

1 August 2018 in Home & Garden Features | Oak & Decking Products | Oak Framed Buildings

Our decking, cladding, oak framed structures and planters featured on a winning stand at BBC Gardeners World Live.

 

 

We recently helped one of our regular customers triumph

in the “People’s Choice Award” at BBC Gardeners World Live. 

After providing several striking elements for Conquest Creative’s garden, it was voted by visitors as most popular in show.

Entitled “Across The Board,” the stand was presented as an example of an ideal outside space for a professional, retired couple with grandchildren. It also claimed a silver gilt award for show judges.

Conquest had the helping hands of our team in giving the stand a contemporary edge with eco-friendly thermo treated cladding and decking, as well as supplying a striking oak pergola and children’s swing from our oak framed building workshop.

 

The garden, which won for its creativity whilst being “easy to maintain”, making it ideal for its intended client, also impressed with our corten steel planters, a contemporary choice thanks to its deep orange, weathered appearance.

The multi-functional, low maintenance garden space “ideally suited to a professional couple who’ve embarked upon early retirement with grown-up children that have fledged the family nest” also included an outdoor kitchen, boardwalk and lawn.

Other highlights included “elements for all seasons” with granite stepping-stones across the grassed lawn with a reflection pool and a corner sunken seated fire pit.

 

Ross Conquest of Conquest Creative Spaces said of Round Wood and its help in winning the BBC “People’s Choice” garden last month: “Round Wood is a landscaper's hidden gem for creating something a little special in the garden.

“Their ranges of tropical hardwoods, oak and Thermory timbers has allowed us to be more creative with our designs and suit different client budgets and expectations. The Thermory range [which was used in the BBC Gardeners World Live garden] with its special clip system is great. 

“Round Wood are a combination of importers and skilled joiners, with a keen eye for garden life-styling. A great combination for top service and expertise, can't fault their service over the years and they always deliver with impeccable reaction times, cheers guys!”

New Whisky Barrel Collection

31 July 2018 in Home & Garden Features

Check out our exciting new collection of oak Scottish whisky barrels - all are waiting for a new home to fill with a pleasant aroma and a taste of history.

 

The sturdy, dark-oak barrels, repurposed after years of being seasoned in whisky distilleries, make beautifully rustic garden features and furniture as well as outdoor tables for pubs and bars.

 

The casks come in a range of sizes from approximately 90cm in height to the fantastically extra-large Puncheon Barrel, which stand at over a metre tall and are ideal to be used as unique table tops.

 

All the barrels, which range in price from £60 to £175, are available to buy direct from our website.

 

Our launch of the new whisky cask collection is a result of discovering wine barrels had become scarce in recent years. Some of the top vineyards in France had started to hold onto their barrels for extra seasons after a poor harvest, meaning they had few to sell - and those that were available soared in price.

 

After looking at other options, we discovered decommissioned barrels from Scottish whisky distilleries. The ever-popular wine barrels also remain in stock after a new supplier was found and are currently available for purchase.

 

Director Jason Frost said: “Though traditionally used for storing and fermenting whisky, our new collection of barrels make great outdoor furniture or garden features. 

 

“They are a darker, richer colour than wine barrels and also have a pleasant aroma. Having come from some of the oldest whisky distilleries in the UK they also come with a piece of history too.

 

“While we originally sourced whisky casks as an alternative to wine barrels, which have been in short supply, they are already proving equally popular and with new stock available from our vineyards in France, they both equally complement our collection of alternative garden features beautifully.”

 

The standard whisky barrels, currently on sale at £60, have a capacity of 200 litres and include traditional hand curved staves and metal bands and a variety of finishing touches with some daubed with paint around the bilge. 

 

 

The oak Hogshead Barrels, priced at £95.00, are favoured by Scotch Whisky distillers due to their larger size. These are made from standard barrels which have been broken down and reassembled with new ends. Allowing a higher capacity, some experts believe these casks allow the whisky to mature better. 

 

 

The Puncheon Barrels are the largest in the collection and are £175.00 each.

Eco-Friendly Homeware

31 July 2018 in Home & Garden Features

We are now offering the Green Tones range of recycled Bamboo Fibre homeware, including coffee cups, kids sets and planters.

 

With single use plastics hitting the headlines for posing one of the most significant risks to our planet,  we are now retailing the full Green Tones range, a recycled alternative to plastics, ceramics and glassware. 

 

In bright, bold tones, the sleek products, which have been used in Channel 5’s Big Brother House, offer a natural choice for those wanting to ditch the many commonly-found plastic items inside and outside the home including garden pots, picnic sets, children's tableware, pet bowls and takeaway coffee cups.

 

As well as being non-toxic and dishwasher safe, eco-conscious shoppers can also be reassured that while plastic takes 450 years to break down - putting enormous toll on our wildlife and ecosystem - the Green Tones collection biodegrades in under five years with minimal landfill impact.

 

Sometimes sold with the tagline “I used to be a chopstick”, the eye-catching range was spotted by one of our very own directors on a business trip to China.

 

 

 

After being drawn to their bright colours and sharp lines, his interest deepened on hearing the products had been created with offcuts from decking, bamboo placemats and chopsticks.

 

Director Jason Frost said: “It looks and handles remarkably like its plastic equivalents but has none of the nasty components or drawbacks. We started off with plant pots and coffee cups but we’ve been expanding into new areas and now have tableware and many more domestic items – the potential range is endless.” 

 

 

 

 

For more information on the Green Tones range please visit our website www.roundwood.com or call our sales team on

Alongside the Burnay, you will also find the Fiori Algarve, Glazed Herb Pots and Alpine ranges.

 

 

Some of these pots can be very weighty and may require a trolley – so you will also find the Wagner range of Trolleys all at great prices. They are perfect for moving around your plant pots safely and quickly. They remain practical yet attractive and are great for aiding drainage whilst raising your plant container off the ground. 

 

In order to make way for new stock, we are also currently clearing several end of line batches of engineered flooring at heavily discounted prices.

Fire pits are ideal for entertaining guests and adding that finishing touch to your garden and if you’re in need of somewhere to store the fuel, we have a sale on our wrought iron log baskets. Choose from either a Gothic or Knotted style, both with the ability to store your logs neatly whilst remaining as a stylish fireplace accessory. Be sure to browse the rest of the garden features on offer to see what other great additions can be made to you garden. 

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As a manufacturer of oak framed buildings, windows and doors, we generate a significant volume of offcuts and sawdust. Rather than let this high grade material go to waste, it is mechanically compressed on site into eco nuggets. These quality briquettes offer an extremely high burn temperature and are very clean to handle. You will find these in the special offers section at brilliant prices.  

For further information on any of these products, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Ipe Decking Reductions

15 December 2017 in Oak & Decking Products

If you are happy with shorter length boards, our 140 x 19mm Ipe decking is now available from just £7,61/lm.

Historically, we have sold Ipe decking at one price, regardless of the length supplied. Recently, however, we have been able to source shorter boards at a lower cost, so are pleased to be able to pass these savings on!

As such, we are now selling our boards in the following length groups:

Under 2.14m - £7.61/lm + vat

2.4m – 4.4m - £8.61/lm + vat

Over 4.5m - £9.61/lm  + vat

Shorter boards are ideal for smaller and narrow projects, such as verandas and balconies, as they reduce wastage and on-site cutting time. They can also offer an unusual and dramatic look on larger projects, particularly when fitted with the hidden fastenings we supply.

Given its durability and stand out appearance, Ipe has continued to increase in popularity over recent years. In order to cope with anticipated demand over the coming months we have recently increased our stockholding, so can fulfil most requirement on short notice if required.

New Handscraped Flooring

15 December 2017 in Oak & Decking Products

Our popular Handscraped engineered flooring is now available in both pre-oiled and unfinished 189x15mm boards.

These now feature alongside our 148mm, 220mm and 260mm ranges, which are supplied in a range of sections, finishes and stains.

Handscraped flooring is often the choice of homeowners with older, more traditional properties as it features a rippled texture that gives the impression of years of wear.

As an engineered board it features a solid wear layer of oak, so offers all the advantages of solid equivalents, but is far more stable and easier to lay. 

The 189mm is sold in packs of 1.4364/m2, comprised of 1.9m lengths, but with two short boards permitted. The finished boards have been pre-coated with two layers of hard wax oil, although we suggest the application of an additional layer to seal the joins once fitted. The unfinished board is ideal for those looking to apply a specific stain, oil or lacquer.
