All Welcome at LeisureGrow’s 1,500m² Open-Air Showrooms

LeisureGrow has a host of new products for 2021 to show off in its huge, open-air 1,500m² showroom in Hertfordshire.


All the government guidelines have been implemented to ensure that the showrooms are COVID compliant and that social distancing rules can be obeyed.


The spacious, open sided showrooms are the only place to come and see the whole of the LG Outdoor furniture range, NOMA Outdoor Lighting and Grillstream BBQs.  The showroom is styled using all of the latest retail display trends, as well as an extensive selection of shop-in-shop POS offerings, so it really is worth a visit.



There’s also the chance to taste a gourmet lunch cooked on the latest Grillstream BBQ – to be enjoyed in the alfresco Grillstream lodge, or on picnic blankets out in the countryside.  Staff will of course observe social distancing at all times.


For the past 20 years LeisureGrow has been creating carefully designed products, with an emphasis on quality, design and innovation, and a customer service team you can rely on every week, 12 months of the year.

ECO Innovations in Furniture Design – How does a Plastic Bottle get into a Cushion?

The team behind LG Outdoor furniture is always looking for new ways to make products look, feel and work better, and that includes environmental innovations too.  That’s why they’ve developed a NEW ECO friendly filling for their back cushions that’s made out of recycled plastic bottles!

How does it work?  Each back cushion contains a filling 100% made from recycled bottles – it takes approximately 7x 1 litre bottles to make enough filling for a comfy, plump cushion.

Jody Grimmer, managing director of LG Outdoor said, We know our customers and consumers alike are concerned about their impact on the environment, and we’re really proud of this new innovation we’re able to bring to outdoor furniture.”


This ECO innovation is an example of the kind of industry-leading technology that LeisureGrow prides itself on.  For the past 20 years the company has been innovating, and for 2021 the new technology in its products is impressive.  Alongside its current technology favourites like Eden Seasonproof Cushions, new innovations include:


StainSAFE – Stain Resistant Fabric from LG Outdoor means there’s no need to worry about food or drink spills damaging your cushions.  StainSAFE technology forms an invisible barrier over every inch of the cushion fabric, so all you need to do is sponge-clean the spillage to get the cushion looking brand new once again.


  • EverRope – Rope-Effect PE Rope from LG Outdoor combines the stylish, contemporary look of rope with all the hard-wearing and long-lasting benefits we’ve come to expect of PE weave.  With a blended colour palette and imprinted rope texture it looks just like natural rope, while the high-quality polyethylene is 100% waterproof, strong, UV resistant, and 100% waterproof.


This is just a taster of the innovative technology used in LeisureGrow’s products - to book your visit to the LeisureGrow showroom to find out more, call the LeisureGrow sales team on 01462 744 500 or email



Grillstream Barbecues 2021 – BBQs go Hybrid

The nation’s passion for barbecuing has been ignited in 2020.  Beautiful weather and more time at home and in the garden has allowed us to spend time doing what we love – cooking al-fresco.

Grillstream has seen a hugely successful year, and with more people than ever loving their outdoor spaces, LeisureGrow has developed its barbecue range for 2021 with more models and features to choose from.  Whether you have a small balcony or sprawling patio, Grillstream barbecues has a model to suit.

Grillstream’s key innovations for 2021:


Hybrid System – Gas or Charcoal – you Decide  All Grillstream models for 2021 come with Grillstream’s unique hybrid technology.  All gas-powered, the Grillstream range now allows you to cook with gas over charcoal, getting that much-loved flavour infused into the food.  Consumers can now get all of the ease and convenience of gas barbecuing and still achieve the taste of a traditional charcoal barbecue, ingenious!


Gastro System – Cooking Al-Fresco gets Creative For creative barbecuing, the Gastro system comes on the Grillstream 4 and 6 burner models.  It includes a reversible flat plate/griddle which allows you to cook more delicate dishes such as fish and seafood that might ordinarily break up on barbecue grills.  Remove this griddle and there’s the option to insert a pizza stone, wok or chicken roaster.  Plus there’s a custom-made shelf on the side of the BBQ to neatly store the Gastro System accessories when you’re not using them.


Grillstream Double Grill System  Grillstream’s patented technology is now in its 7th year, the unique double grill system that channels the fat away, eliminating flare-ups, continues to amaze people – and once you try out this unique double grill system you’ll understand why!


The Ranges:  Compact/ Classic/ Elite / Gourmet / Island
