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.

Our vision is to be the best choice for outdoor living. We passionately believe in environmental sustainability, so we use sustainable, slow-grown softwood sourced from FSC® certified (FSC®-C114990) and PEFC-certified (PEFC/16-37-1490) forests, expertly selected for beauty and durability.

We are true wood specialists, crafting this stunning natural material into innovative garden products that combine comfort, style, and easy-to-build convenience.

With our range of garden furniture, outdoor dining sets, benches, planters, arches, arbours, gazebos, and furniture ranges, we design products for outdoor living enthusiasts—ideal for everything from outdoor entertaining and relaxation to growing your own.

Our purpose is to enhance your outdoor living experience without costing the Earth...
