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.

Creating some autumn interest in the garden

Autumn is a melancholic time in the garden; the perennials are dying back, annuals have had their moment, and you may be faced with a few empty spaces where plants have been pruned. The garden may not be looking its best, but you may still be enjoying some mild days, absorbing some late golden sunshine when you can. It makes sense to keep as much interest in the garden as possible, making it an inviting place to spend time for as many months of the year as you can.

Autumn is a great time to plant hardy shrubs, those reliable mainstays of the garden that can look great all year round and keep your garden looking interesting (and draw the eye away from the odd bare patch). Climbing shrubs are an especially useful plant to bring into your garden, drawing the eye upwards and adding shape and form. The secret, as with all planting, is to choose the planting position wisely and ensure you have appropriate supports that meet the needs of the plant. Unstable or weak trellis will not look great and will compromise the stability and roots of the plant. Choose wisely and look after any garden structures to keep them strong and looking good (http://www.liveoutside.co.uk/blog/garden-structures/looking-after-your-pergola-in-winter).

Rosa Alberic Barbier (AGM) is a beautiful cream rambling rose with a cheeky flush of lemon in the centre. Scented and with dark green glossy foliage it will happily ramble up through the branches of a tree, undeterred by the shade of a north-facing position. Encourage this rose to wander over a sturdy arbour to create some welcome shade in summer and a cosy little nook in autumn (http://www.liveoutside.co.uk/milton-corner-arbour.html).

Espalier planting is a clever way to grow fruit if you are short of space, training the plants into a fan-shaped, or lateral growth pattern against a wall support. You can also use this technique to train ornamental climbing shrubs, too - plants like Cotoneaster and Pyracantha are easy to grow, hardy, and will reward you with evergreen interest throughout the year. Add interestingly-shaped, well-made trellis to your wall and the plants will need little other than the occasional trim or tie-in to help them create an interesting and architectural feature in your garden (http://www.liveoutside.co.uk/english-wall-trellis.html).

If shrubs aren’t quite your thing, and you simply live for the colour and scent of summer, then you can still keep some interest in your garden over the cooler months while preparing for a glorious spring and summer in 2016. Sweet Peas are one of the jewels of the garden, with fragrant, varied colours they simply thrive on repeated pruning, keeping your home in delightful posies of fresh flowers throughout the growing season. But a little care and planning is needed to reap the rewards, and sweet peas love to put down stable, long roots. This can be a challenge if you plan to sow and plant out in the same season, so many sweet pea fans advocate planting now and overwintering their plants ready for planting out after the frosts next spring. Plant now and choose a lovely planter with integral trellis for the sweet peas to clamber over all next summer (http://www.liveoutside.co.uk/oslo-planter.html). And for now? Fill it with hardy winter pansies, cyclamen and adorn the trellis with twinkly solar fairy lights for some decorative interest while you (im)patiently wait for the new growing season!
