News from Fountain Timber


We constantly endeavour to find new uses for products previously considered waste. Ever since we installed  Eco Woodchip Drier all the mill offcuts are either sold as firewood or chipped and dried on-site to produce quality woodchip for use in biomass boilers. 

A large load of woodchip went to a chicken farm in Somerset today.


We are very proud that one of our bespoke garden buildings featured in the gold medal-winning garden design by Stonebarn Landscapes at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.

The building had an extended pent roof, a solid frame made from 50x70mm CLS graded timber and T&G pressure treated cladding. The artist who painted the building used wax and fence paint to achieve a distressed, driftwood effect which contrasted beautifully with the dark, double glazed doors and windows. 

Garden buildings are often ideal solution to growing families and people working from home as they can be turned into an office, summer house, playroom, gym, hot tub enclosure... the options are endless.  

All our garden buildings are made to measure in our on-site workshop and offer a choice of style, size, cladding, doors, windows, external storage, insulation to help you create your perfect building.  

Visit our displays and talk to our garden building specialist.


 We are looking for an experienced bench carpenter /joiner to join our busy workshop. 37 hours per week from Monday to Friday from 7.30 -5pm. Overtime occasionally available.

The role includes manufacturing gates, panels, trellis, garden seating, structures and buildings.

Commercial woodworking machinery experience is essential. Forklift licence, first aid and manual handling qualifications would be useful although training can be given to the right applicant.

Your own transport is essential due to rural location (near Bristol Airport).

NEW Spring 2019 Catalogue

We are pleased to announce that our new Spring 2019 Catalogue has been published and is now available in both digital and hard copies.

We kept handy A5 size but added many more products, useful tips and advice, product details and other relevant information.

Alternatively, if you would prefer a hard copy either pick one up when you next visit our shop, or simply request a copy to be sent to you by post by completing the FORM on our website or emailing your details to


January is a perfect time to start planning what you want to do with your garden in the months to come. Think about what you would like to change and draw plans of what needs to be done to improve your outdoor space. 

Our new spring catalogue, full of new products and ideas will be published on 1 February.  In the meantime visit the Advice Centre on our website, or come and talk to us about your requirements and ideas and we hope to be able to help you make your garden work better for you not just in spring and summer but all year round.     

We look forward to seeing you soon. 


As we are normally closed on Sundays throughout the winter, special arrangements have been made for the first three weeks of December. Although the site itself will be closed on Sundays, our Christmas store will be open from 10am – 4pm.  This will enable the Christmas Tree company to sell freshly cut Christmas trees from our car park again this year. As always, we are happy to help them and their customers by offering a place to display and sell their lovely trees and by processing their credit /debit card sales in Fountain Timber Christmas Store. 

Visitors can also get amazing  Christmas decorations and unique gifts from our beautiful Christmas shop.  

As the site is not fully staffed, we can only offer limited service and sell items displayed in the shop, but we will be happy to take orders for collection or delivery of any of our other products including firewood.


Local sourcing has become a buzzword but when your row materials come from a forest 5 minutes away from your yard then ‘locally sourced’ gets a whole new meaning.  As Fountain Timber has always been an environmentally minded organisation, we were absolutely delighted to learn that our latest loads of logs were harvested by our supplier Euroforest at Wrington Warren – just up the road from us.  

More than 300 tons of logs, mainly pine were brought into our yard from Wrington Warren, to be cut in our mill and treated in our own treatment plant.

Due to its structure, Pine responds well to treatment and it is great for Use Class 4 standard (UC4) for use in external, permanent ground contact applications, severe weathering and attack of fungi (for example fence/gate posts and all timber in ground contacts like decking joists and sleepers).

Although we will have to go a bit further for our next load of logs, we take great pride in producing high-quality products while minimising the impact our production has on the environment and always endeavour to obtain our timber from responsibly managed sources. All logs purchased by Fountain Timber to produce square sawn timber within our own sawmill and small round logs purchased to manufacture Round Fencing on-site have full FSC®  certified chain of custody.


With the Beast from the East, cold wind and our woods still covered in snow, it is strange to think that this week actually marks the astronomical beginning of spring. As we are all looking forward to longer days, first blooms and hopefully some warmer weather, here at Fountain preparations for a busy season are in full swing.  We are updating our displays with a new design sheds and garden buildings,   garden furniture and decking.  In addition to fencing and landscaping material form featheredge and fence panels to sleepers, log walls and planters, we also have a selection of beautiful softwood and hardwood gates. All our gates are handcrafted in our on-site workshop and can be made to measure to suit your particular requirements. 

Visit us in the heart of the woods, talk to us about your requirements, get inspiration and advice and see if you can pick up a little treasure from our Bargain Corner (a few ex-display gates and sheds still on offer).


Fountain Timber has always been committed to actively promoting wider sustainability agenda and receiving a Certificate of Environmental Performance from Blackmore Ricotech has further strengthened our green credentials.

We participate in the Blackmore Ricotech IT WEEE reuse programme and during 2016 we saved 73kg of carbon emissions by up-cycling 180kg of IT WEEE for reuse before destructive material recovery.

This Certificate demonstrates that we have met all our responsibilities by successfully following best practice and the priorities set out in the Waste Hierarchy framework and by doing so made a positive contribution towards protecting the environment.

FOUNTAIN TIMBER’S  FSC Chain of Custody Certificate RENEWED

We are very proud that our certificate for the FSC Chain of Custody has been renewed and is now valid till 15 February 2022.

The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to promoting responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC certification is the most recognised scheme for sustainable forestry and traceability of forests products. The scheme is growing globally and creates an incentive for forest owners and managers to follow the best social and environmental practices. 

The FSC Chain of Custody (CoC applies to manufacturers, processors and traders of FSC certified forest products and allows the tracking of FSC certified material from the forest to the consumer. 

Only an FSC accredited certification body can evaluate, monitor and certify companies to FSC standards, and only continuous compliance can assure that certificate holders can keep their certificates.

Having the FSC Chain of Custody Certificate helps us to show our commitment to actively promoting wider sustainability by ensuring that our logs come from forests managed with consideration for people, wildlife and the environment.


Although the temperatures may still be a little on the chilly side and the spring hasn’t quite arrived yet most of us have started to think about the importance of getting our outdoor living space ready for spring. 

You can find a lot of useful tips and information in our ADVICE CENTRE from how to care for your timber, erect the shed or choose the right decking to make your own compost.  

If you have experienced any bad weather this winter there is a possibility that your fence and other garden structures may have been damaged. Whether you need a fence panel, a trellis or maybe a gate now is a good time to come to Fountain and choose from our extensive range one that would best suit your requirements.   

Welcome to 2017

Christmas holidays are now well behind us and January is a perfect time to assess your garden and start planning for spring. Think about what you would like to change and draw plans of what needs to be done to improve your outdoor space. 

With our new spring catalogue out soon and a lot of handy tips in the Advice Centre on our website, we hope to be able to offer you quality products and new ideas to help you make your garden work better for you not just in spring and summer but all year round.     

May the New Year bring us more wonderful opportunities to work together and don’t forget to keep feeding the birds as food is scarce for them over winter.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

Our Christmas Shop, packed with seasonal goodies is now OPEN.

Enjoy a drive to our woods, visit Fountain Store to see our beautiful displays and pick up unusual Christmas decorations, tree ornaments and interesting gifts.


Well, it's that time of the year again, temperatures are dropping and sitting in front of the log fire is becoming more and more appealing.

At Fountain Timber, we sell seasoned hardwood and softwood logs, cut to size, easy to use and ideal for both open fires and wood-burning stoves.

Keeping your logs dry is very important as dry, seasoned wood is easier to light, it burns cleaner with less smoke and produces more heat.  

Our log stores are perfect for storing firewood. They come in various shapes and sizes and will enable you to keep your logs neatly undercover and off the ground while allowing maximum airflow from all sides. For more information about choosing and storing your firewood, visit our advice pages.

BASF Wolman GmbH 2016 Conference

Fountain Timber Products Managing Director Steven Sutton and  Treatment Manager Chris Goldstone attended a 2-day Symposium in Sweden organised by our wood preservative supplier BASF Wolman GmbH.

They both enjoyed the event and thought it was very interesting, informative and extremely well organised.

On their return, Steven told us that he was very impressed by the BSF Wolman employees and their desire to assist their customers by sharing knowledge, expectation and best practice in the industry.

The highlight of the trip was a visit to Bergstimber Bitus in Nybro, one of the largest treatment businesses in Europe which are pioneering new ways of timber treatment.   

You can find further details and photos from the conference in the article TREATED SUPERBLY…THE WOLMAN WAY published by  Fencing and Landscaping News

 Wear it pink 2016 small  October - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity. Every October, their fundraising event wear it pink raises around £2 million, by asking people to wear something pink and donate whatever they can. 

The staff of Fountain Timber Products were happy to take part in this event again this year. We decorated our entrance with pink balloons, baked cakes, had a raffle and we are all wearing pink to help raise money for this worthwhile cause. 
The memory will be preserved by this photo taken by our able photographer Lizzy Lou who not only painted her nails in pink but as a winner of our Pink raffle donated her winning to the cause as well.

We operate three Hargassner biomass boilers to supply all our heat requirements throughout the site, including heating our offices, store and workshops, running our timber drying kilns and to force dry some of our woodchips.

This is a major step forward in reducing our carbon footprint and helps us maintain our ISO 14001 environmental accreditation. We no longer purchase any heating oil fuel.

We also produce and trade our own ‘bsl’ authorised wood chip and firewood fuel from residual waste.  The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) is a method that is used to provide RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) participants with a simple way to demonstrate that their fuel complies with RHI fuel sustainability standards.  

This material is produced from FSC managed woodland supplied from within the region and qualifies for RHI payments.

We can supply and deliver high-quality woodchip for the biomass boiler.  We specialise in regular small loads (12 cu meters in our tipper vehicle) ideal for customers with restrictive access to their site.  If you want to find out more… Contact our sales office for more details.

Biomass heating saves money and does the work for you…

Jagram use their own experienced trained team to install their structures and buildings and they have been very busy in our display area this week putting up this gorgeous Edwardian greenhouse as well as  Arizona carport and S-line curved pergola so come up to our site this weekend and see our new displays- they look even better in real life. 

  New Carport Display Edwardian Greenhouse Display  S line Pergola  Arizona Carport Display finishing touches


 There are several reasons to think about adding a carport to your property: 

  • Carport protects your car or other vehicles from the elements - sun, rain, hail or snow

  • It makes unloading the car easier as there are no doors to open but there is still overhead protection if needed

  • Parking in the carport, closer to the front door rather than in the street is safer for both driver and a vehicle

  • Carport is much cheaper to purchase and install, it has more flexibility in design and location and usually, it is subject to fewer regulations than a garage.

  • Carport has more versatility than a garage and can be used as a covered entertaining or dining area, sheltered play area for children as well as a convenient and protected space for adults to chill or work under.

  • Adding a carport will increase the value of your property and make it more attractive to prospective buyers when it comes to selling. 

Visit our site and talk to us about your requirements. In addition to a newly erected ARIZONA Carport that can be seen in our display area, you can choose a number of other carports from our standard range or we can discuss truly bespoke structure constructed to your exact specifications and needs.

New Chipping Line Starts Production 

Using wood for heating has many advantages from reduced C02 emissions to the financial benefits from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). 

Having a reliable local supply of woodchip that meets appropriate quality standards is a very important factor in day to day running of a biomass boiler.  At Fountain Timber, we have recently introduced a new chipping line which enables us to supply high-quality wood chip at the correct moisture content and competitive price.  Local deliveries help minimise the financial and environmental costs and promote wider sustainability agenda.

For further information and prices please call 01934862710 or e-mail and we shall be happy to discuss your particular requirements.

Fountain Timber Shed transformed into Santa’s Grotto

There's nothing more exciting than meeting Santa at Christmas.  Our friends at Tesco Nailsea were lucky enough to find a slot in Santa’s busy schedule, so they invited him to meet local children and find out what they most want for Christmas.

With the sprinkle of magic dust, one of Fountain Timber sheds was transformed into an enchanted grotto to host the big man himself and his little visitors.

Still, time to Improve Garden Soil with High-Quality Woodland Mulch

As the weather has been unusually mild for this time of the year and the soil is moist and still relatively warm, there is still time to apply mulches and garden compost - your soil will love it.

When it comes to mulch a weed control might be your primary aim, but the organic woodland mulch will do much more for your garden.  It will help the soil retain moisture in summer, prevent weeds from growing and protect the roots of plants in winter.  It slowly decays, adding organic matter to your soil, encouraging earthworms and improving soil structure and water-holding capacity.  To be effective mulch needs to be at least 5cm (3 in) and ideally 7.5 cm (3in) thick and it should be laid over moist soil best in autumn or spring when the soil is not frozen.  

Woodland Mulch

Get a composting bin for your dead leaves

The winter weather with rain and wind is here and the leaves are falling rapidly so why not get a composting bin to put all your garden and kitchen waste to provide compost for your garden.

Although spring is an ideal time to start composting, if you get your composting bin now you will have a great place to put the dead leaves and other garden and kitchen waste, your composting pile will have time to grow and it will be ready for spring.   For more information on how to make your own compost visit our advice page:

Feed the Birds this Winter

Winter can be a tough time for birds and your supply of food can help save their lives. Make sure you put out food and water on a regular basis. In severe weather, feed twice daily if possible, in the morning and in the early afternoon. More information can be found on the RSPB website:

Fountain team up with the health club to create the region's toughest boot camp.

Cadbury Bootcamp

Fountain Timber has created a series of bespoke, arm numbing and leg trembling outdoor fitness apparatus designed to test the most ardent fitness fanatic for the South West’s leading independent health club. The new boot camp produces arguably one of the toughest boot camp courses anywhere in the region. Our picture shows the fitness team trying out the new kit for the first time before the facility opens at the beginning of September.

The new course has been constructed on the grounds of theclub at Cadbury House in Congresbury by Paragon Gardens of Clevedon and is the first venue in the country to take delivery of the new Fountain designs and includes a three-metre climbing wall, parallel bars, varied height chin-up bars, balance beams and monkey bars.

Tom Horton, fitness manager at the award-winning club, is now looking forward to putting members and guests to the hotel through their paces on the new course. He said: “Our boot camps have become increasingly popular so we’re really pleased to have teamed up with local company Fountain Timber to construct this fantastic new course. “Boot camps have grown in popularity because they are a great way to get in shape. The idea is to use bodyweight as the main resistance. There’s a lot of teamwork and the camaraderie is brilliant while the benefits for the individual is massive. “This helps push people to achieve goals they might not reach on their own.

“This new course will now drive participants even further. The new exercise stations are all numbered so people can do pre-set circuits and enjoy harder, more varied boot camps in all-weather, all year round!”

Two Biomass boilers installed

Biomass Boiler

We have installed two new Hargassner boilers to convert our heating requirements throughout our site and timber drying kilns to biomass fuel. This is a major step forward in reducing our carbon footprint and helps us maintain our ISO 14001 environmental accreditation. We can actually produce our own woodchip fuel from what years ago was considered waste and actually created headaches for the company to dispose of efficiently. Today it helps us save money by dispensing with the need to purchase heating oil and helps us meet our goal to reduce our impact on the environment. As part of the company’s ongoing improvement plan, we have taken the opportunity to improve the controls in our two kilns to make them more efficient and gain the most benefit from the investment in biomass.

If you are a Fountain Timber customer and want to find out more. Simply call 01934 862710 and we would be more than pleased to show you around.

Improved delivery service

New Lorry - News

We are improving our delivery ability and have introduced a new 3.5 tonne Isuzu Grafter to complement our existing vehicle fleet. The new truck was delivered for use from the 1st of May. Being less than 2metres wide it is ideally suited to work in restricted areas in city centres like Bristol and Bath where many residential areas are impossible to service with larger trucks. The body has been designed to suit fence panel sizes and with an added tow bar allows us to deliver dumpy bags of bark or logs using a crane offload trailer.

The normal spring boost in the fencing market has become irrelevant this year.

As we approach Easter the whole fencing and timber market is in turmoil. With the storms over winter, the wet weather restricting timber supplies all adding up to shortages no manufacturer or supplier has been able to build stocks this spring.

We at Fountain are chasing raw logs from all suppliers; we have orders with the panel manufacturers who are also restricted by the shortage of component parts. Additionally, we have our own sawmill and treatment plants working at full speed and for longer hours. Despite all this effort we still cannot supply what is becoming an excessive order book. We, therefore, are trying to be fair by supplying materials in the order they are ordered. This inevitably creates waiting lists!

We do not expect this situation to improve quickly. Our only advice is please order early. We do not think the backlog of panel orders will be satisfied in weeks let alone days. With the Easter surge, more and more customers have ordered more - adding to the supply chain problem.

Be assured we will do everything we can to meet your needs, but be patient as we must be fair to all our customers with a first come first served policy.
