Using the highest quality sustainable Western Red Cedar, grown over decades in the stunningly beautiful mountains of British Colombia, each item is produced by forest artisans in the Ontario countryside and carry the name of the individual craftsman who built it.
Our highly skilled craftsmen have all chosen not work in a large-scale factory setting, but from their own workshops in small groups of creative specialist wood workers. They also choose to work with Western Red Cedar for its durability, strength, beauty and versatility, but also because it is sourced from the most sustainably managed forests in the world. Canadian Western Red Cedar is a highly revered, incredibly durable wood that is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks – which means that everything that is constructed with it will last longer and will require less maintenance.
There really is no substitute for the natural beauty of real Cedar. Imbued with crisp, superbly rich, tonal properties, Western Red Cedar is perfect for the creation of sublime outdoor sanctuaries that embolden traditional home décor. Above all else, independent studies have shown that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is far superior to synthetic products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, Western Red Cedar actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere.
All Verdure products are hand crafted in rural Canada using high quality Western Red Cedar – shipped to the UK and lovingly assembled by our team at your home or chosen location
