Driftwood for Hire

Driftwood Garden Feature

We at DriftwoodUK are happy to supply driftwood for short term, medium term or long term hire. We have hired out driftwood to places as far afield as Ireland, Germany, Luxemburg and even Jamaica.

Here are some examples of the type of uses to which our driftwood has been put whilst out on hire:

  • The oars for a canoe used in a new product launch for Truvia calorie-free sweetener which took place on the boating lake on top of Oxford Street’s Selfridges store in London
  • To enhance an exhibition stand for a banking software client in Luxembourg

Driftwood Gifts

Driftwood Table Feature

Coming up with original gift ideas is always difficult. But if you want a totally unique gift for someone special that they will treasure all their lives, then a driftwood sculpture fits the bill perfectly.

Every piece of driftwood is unique

How often can you give a gift that you know is a complete one-off? Not only will the individual sculpture be unique, but there won’t be many people you know who will have any driftwood whatsoever in their house or garden.

Driftwood Chairs

driftwood chair

Many beautiful works of art have been createdfrom the driftwood we have supplied.

Here is one particular piece of art that merits a mention.

Last year, Matt French visited our driftwood warehouse near Guildford in Surrey and hand picked some 20 odd pieces of driftwood of various shapes and sizes for a chair he was making for the Christmas fair at a local school.

Only a few weeks later Matt sent us this picture.

We don’t think it would look out of place at Hogwarts School.

If you have an idea for a driftwood creation, get in touch. You can either buy the driftwood and make it yourself, or commission us to make it for you. Driftwood furniture is certainly unique and in the right environment can be the focal point of a room.

Aquarium Driftwood

Driftwood Aquarium

Driftwood is often used to enhance an aquarium’s environment.

Here is some advice on how to introduce driftwood to your aquarium:

Before you decide to add any driftwood to your aquarium, you should put in some preparation and thought to bring out the driftwood’s best aesthetic qualities. Natural driftwood structures can make up a large portion of your aquarium, therefore any adjustments need to be thought through as they can cause significant stress to the environment, and if not done well, may entail you having to take the aquarium apart and starting from scratch again.

Driftwood for Zoos

Driftwood For Zoos

DriftwoodUK has supplied driftwood to a number of Zoos in the past.

Edinburgh Zoo

In 2011 we supplied a number of driftwood pieces for Edinburgh Zoo. The pieces were to help spruce up the penguin enclosure which was undergoing a makeover. The feedback we received from the Zoo was that the penguins were very happy with their new decor.
