Our Story

Introducing Zest

Zest (formerly Zest 4 Leisure) is a fifth-generation British company that has been designing and manufacturing wooden garden products for over 35 years. We passionately believe in sustainably, so we use FSC®-C114990 certified slow-grown softwood, expertly selected for beauty and durability.

We are true timber specialists, crafting this stunning natural material into fresh and innovative garden products which combine comfort, style and easy build convenience. 

Whether it’s a garden arch, a set of outdoor furniture, a trellis, a planter or a gazebo, you’ll love the freshness, the touch of nature and the understanding of what makes your outdoors inspiring, calming and special. 

For relaxation and wellbeing, socialising and entertaining, family time or home grown food and flowers, we have the natural outdoor solution for everyone.

Zest for life outdoors


Every gazeboplanterraised bed and furniture set is made to exacting standards from the highest quality materials.

Award winning design and craftsmanship 

From humble beginnings, we have grown to become one of the leading specialists in the timber garden market by continuing to put quality and innovation at the forefront of our business.

Our products are designed by a team of experts who combine their ingenuity to create pieces that are not only comfortable and visually beautiful, but which also reflect the different ways we like to enjoy our outdoor spaces.

Whether it is a relaxing gazebo where you can sit and watch wildlife come and go, a space-saving wooden planter to grow your own produce, or a garden furniture set that provides the setting to create lifelong memories with friends and family, our expertise and passion is for longevity and quality using sustainable, natural materials. 

We create softwood garden products that are tailored to the changing lifestyles and needs of our customers
