Press Release - New ownership brings new partnerships for BTL Timber & Garden Buildings (Jan 2023)

BTL Timber & Garden Buildings in Toronto, Bishop Auckland has long-since been the go-to timber yard for fencing, decking and landscaping firms across the County Durham area and beyond. Following the retirement of Bob Dennis, the well-established business has remained in the family, with Rachel Halladay taking the reins in early 2022. She benefited from Bob’s knowledge and expertise for some time before purchasing the business and is focused on expanding the product lines offered through several new partnerships.

One such partnership is with one of the UK’s leading garden room specialists, UK Garden Buildings. The partnership has enabled BTL Timber & Garden Buildings to offer its customers bespoke outdoor buildings that are ideal for use as a home office, gym, bar, or for relaxation. The addition of garden rooms to the existing sheds and summer houses currently offered will allow customers to make use of their gardens year-round. The two firms share the same family-run ethos, customer service and quality products, so a partnership between the two is a match made in garden living heaven.

Also installed by the new owner is a display garden that allows customers to see products from across the full range in person. From garden buildings to sheds and garden furniture to aggregates, the display garden negates the need for you to imagine the sizes, finishes, and quality of the range. You can take a hands-on approach to transform your outdoor space.

Rachel Halladay, owner of BTL Timber & Garden Buildings, says, “Following discussion with our existing customers, it became clear that they would welcome not only a wider product range of premium quality garden buildings and furniture but also the opportunity to see our range close-up in our on-site display garden.

“We’re delighted to be working with UK Garden Buildings in order to offer insulated buildings to make gardens enjoyable year-round, not just in the warmer months. We work with the customer from the design appointment right through to installation, so they can be sure they’re in safe hands.”

BTL Timber & Garden Buildings is located just outside Bishop Auckland town centre, and is easily accessible by traders and the public from across the North East. Their timber yard has the space to hold significant stock of the timber required for fencing and landscaping companies, with trade prices available on request.

Members of the public undertaking garden transformations or other DIY projects are welcome on-site to see in-person the display garden, where you’ll find a selection of garden rooms, sheds and garden furniture and accessories.
