Liveoutside garden products are committed to innovative product development and manufacturing. Our products are manufactured to the highest standards. Advanced treatment process with permanent wood preservative provides complete protection against rot and insect attack for up to 10 years. Please notice that 10 years guarantee applies only to products which have no contact with the ground. Otherwise durability of the wood is reduced.

The life of a building depends upon it's foundations. It is vitally important that your base is firm, level, square and large enough to accommodate the building you have ordered. Ideally, your garden building should be installed on a flat concrete slab which is unlikely to sink or break up. A thickness of 50 to 100mm is required, depending upon the size and type of building that you have ordered. As an alternative, concrete paving slabs or decking bases may be laid but they should still be level, unlikely to sink at any point and completely cover the area of base required. If you have any doubts concerning the base seek advice from a local builder.


All of the timbers are pressure impregnated using the most advanced formulation of permanent wood preservative which guarantees our products for many years against decay, weathering and insect attack.

Pressure treatment is a lifetime preservative treatment. The preservative is forced into the timber under pressure in a vacuum and penetrates below the surface. All other treatments apply a coat of stain to the surface of the timber only. With pressure impregnated timber, the chemicals are permanently fixed in the wood.


All liveoutside garden buildings can be delivered to your door complete with a professional full installation service for as little as £345.

Our experienced builders will have your building erected and ready for use on the same day for maximum convenience and minimum disruption. If you cannot be available on the day of installation the installers will gladly carry on with the work without anybody being home. To order our professional installation service please choose this option on your shopping cart at the time of making your purchase.

Three compelling reasons to invest in a carport

The garage has been a commonplace part of the British home for decades and most new houses are still constructed with one. However, research consistently demonstrates that homeowners do not use their garages for their cars – in fact, as little as 25% do - with garages often becoming uncoordinated storage ground for piles of unwanted household junk. Instead, cars are parked on the driveway, where they are more vulnerable to extremes of weather, theft and vandalism, causing insurance premiums to rise as a result.

A carport is a cost-effective and practical alternative to a garage that means you can utilise the space a garage provides without cutting corners on your car’s security and safety. It is also a viable alternative to a brick construction if you’re thinking of having a garage built.

When considering the benefits of a carport, there are three main areas upon which to focus:


A carport will help to give your vehicle considerable protection from a variety of sources of damage, including intense sunlight, heavy rain, frost and ice, wind-strewn debris and falling leaves. Without adequate protection, the paint, bodywork and glass on your car can become easily damaged over time, reducing its value and affecting its visual appeal.


A professionally-installed carport is an uncomplicated but robust structure that offers excellent value – particularly if you’re considering one as an alternative to building a garage. Often costing only a fraction of a permanent brick structure, a carport designed and installed by specialists from liveoutside.co.uk will offer long-term protection for your car, as well as doubling up as a fantastic entertaining space.


While a carport offers effective protection for your car, it can also be adapted for a number of other uses, if only for an afternoon or evening. For example, it can be the perfect location to host an outdoor dinner party, especially if the weather promises unwanted showers; adorned with nightlights and potted plants, it’s perfect for an evening event with friends or family yet can be easily returned to its normal use afterwards, or it could be transformed into a large role play area or games room for the children on a wet afternoon.

With three compelling reasons to invest in a wooden carport, now could be the perfect time to obtain professional advice about choosing the most appropriate structure for your home and needs, to realise your dream of a safe and secure place to store your car and create some versatile outdoor living space for the whole family.
