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.

  • The four structures you need for the perfect springtime garden

    Although winter’s chill lingered in the air longer than usual this year, the spring season is now well and truly under way here in Britain. You may even be thinking about investing in new structures for your garden so that you can spend more time there during this warmer part of the year. But what structures are essential for creating the ideal springtime garden? We think there are four structures that are indispensable if you want to construct the perfect garden for this uniquely lovely season.

    1. A gazebo

    A gazebo is the perfect place to socialise and admire your garden while it is in full bloom. Gazebos can also offer shelter during light springtime showers, meaning that you don’t need to be forced back inside by a little rain. We offer a huge range of gazebos in different styles, so you’re certain to find one that suits your tastes on the ecommerce part of our website.

    2. A garden arbour

    During the springtime, you’re likely to want to view your garden from a less enclosed vantage point than the one offered by your gazebo. Garden arbours provide you with a place to sit and enjoy your garden without surrounding you completely.

    3. Trellises

    Garden trellises can give you a great place to grow your plants. Their delicate latticework provides support and shelter for developing plant-life. What’s more, some plants (such as ivy and other creepers) will actually grow around trellises, thereby making them even prettier and more appealing. They’re the perfect accessory and support for your springtime plants. We have a wide selection of trellises in different styles for you to choose from, so feel free to spend some time browsing our range.

    4. A hammock

    Finally, you may wish to invest in a hammock, so you can doze in your garden on the warmest, sunniest days of spring. A hammock is the perfect way to enjoy a beautiful garden during the most colourful and pleasant time of the year.

    If you’re thinking of installing new structures in your garden this spring, you should start by looking at our broad selection of gazebos, arbours, trellises and hammocks.

  • Fencing vs trellises: the ultimate showdown

    As we discussed in our blog entry ‘The Joys of Garden Fencing’, there are many reasons you may wish to enclose your garden. You might want to increase your privacy or bolster your home security. Alternatively, you might simply wish to erect a barrier to prevent pets or young children running off. If you do wish to enclose your garden, you can use either conventional fencing panels or more unusual trellis panels. Both options have their own unique advantages, but which one is right for you?

    Conventional fencing panels tend to be much more solid than trellis panels. This means that they are more resilient and can give you a greater degree of privacy. Because fencing panels don’t feature any gaps, they are very effective at keeping both intruders and prying eyes out of your garden! They can also survive harsh weather conditions and other forms of damage more easily, due to their solidity and toughness. If you need a hard-wearing, long-term method of enclosing your garden (or if you want to maximise your privacy), we suggest choosing conventional fencing panels.

    However, ordinary fencing isn’t for everyone. Taller fencing panels can block out sunlight, and some garden-owners feel that they can make the space feel smaller and less open. Luckily, trellis panels solve both of these problems. Trellis panels are usually comprised of wooden latticework, which lets light through and seems less constrictive. You can use trellis panels instead of standard fencing panels if you want to ensure that your garden retains a light, open feel despite being enclosed.

    Because they contain gaps, trellis panels are slightly weaker than fencing panels and offer less privacy. They may not survive harsh weather conditions as well as ordinary fencing and they can’t stop people from seeing into your garden very effectively. But if you live in an area where you don’t need to worry about people looking into your garden or about rough weather, trellis panels may be the perfect solution for you.

    Whether you choose to enclose your garden with fencing or trellises, we have products to suit you. Check out our range of trellises [http://www.liveoutside.co.uk/fencing-trellis/trellis-panels-38.html] and fences [http://www.liveoutside.co.uk/fencing-trellis/fence-panels.html] today.

  • Which is right for you: a summer house or a gazebo?

    We often mention our fantastic range of gazebos on this blog, but did you know that we also sell summer houses? Summer houses are very similar to gazebos, but they do have a couple of important and notable differences. Unlike gazebos, they are completely enclosed and feature glass windows. Gazebos are designed to protect you from the elements, but they are open enough to allow breezes and fresh air to circulate through them. In contrast, summer houses are a more like small, self-contained rooms: they can defend you completely from the elements while offering panoramic views of your garden. But which is right for you: a gazebo or a summer house? Each structure has its own particular advantages.

    The main advantage of gazebos is that they allow you to feel that you are outside in the fresh air and sunshine. Though they protect you from harsh winds and precipitation, they don’t create a barrier between you and your garden. If you love to be outside and feel the cool breeze caressing your cheek, we think that one of our high-quality gazebos would be perfect for you. However, because they don’t offer complete protection from the outside world, gazebos can only be used regularly during the warmer months of the year.

    If you need a sturdy, protective structure that you can use all year round, you may wish to consider opting for a summer house instead. The main advantage of these structures is that (despite their name), they can be used throughout most of the year. Because it can act like a self-contained room, you can even treat your summer house as a place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of your house throughout the year.

    In summary, you should invest in a gazebo if you need a sheltered, open-air space to enjoy your garden and socialise with friends during the warmest part of the year. You should opt for a summer house if you need a quiet room where you can view your garden at any time of year.

    Whatever garden structure you ultimately decide to invest in, we have something that will suit you perfectly. Check out our range on the ecommerce part of the site today.

  • The joys of garden fencing

    Fencing is absolutely essential for any back garden. Firstly, it provides privacy and turns your garden into a refuge from the outside world. Everyone needs a little personal space and your garden is the perfect venue in which to create your own. Secondly, if you have any pets or small children, garden fencing can turn your garden into a safe space for them. Providing a barrier prevents them from straying too far and simultaneously ensures they can’t be seen by passers-by. In short, garden fencing is highly functional. However, it can also be incredible stylish. Just because it’s practical, doesn’t mean it has to be unadorned or insufficiently decorative.

    Here at Live Outside, we pride ourselves on the elegance and variety of our fence panels. Our Malvern panels have beautifully arched tops that give them a pleasantly quaint aesthetic. Meanwhile, our Salisbury panels and Durham panels are topped with flowing wooden wave-shapes, which are supported by an elegant criss-cross pattern of short struts. Our Beverly panels and York panels use planks of wood which are oriented in different directions to create a simple but attractive design. In fact, we offer so many different types of fencing that it would take an entire blog entry to describe them all!

    Once you have chosen an elegant, stylish type of fencing for your garden, you can enhance its appearance further by decorating it. Here at Live Outside, we sell trellis corner elements, fence post caps and ornamental wooden acorns, but you can also make your own fencing accessories or source them from elsewhere. As we have discussed in previous blog entries, you can also improve the appearance of your fencing by painting it in your favourite colour.

    We believe that even the most functional garden structures should be decorative, or even beautiful. That’s why our fencing panels feature unique, sophisticated designs and why we also supply ornamental accessories that you can use to augment these panels. Don’t settle for unimaginative garden fencing: come and browse our selection of gorgeous panels and accessories. You may be surprised by the wide range of options available.

  • Garden shelters for weatherproof outdoor activities

    Spring is coming, and we are starting to see the sun shining through after a long winter. However, those high winds and cool breezes can still make outdoor activities seem daunting. From popping to the garden for a cigarette to letting the little ones take their toys outside, making the most of our gardens is something we all like to do. With a beautiful garden structure from Live Outside, you can enjoy the outdoors even when the weather is cool, enjoying wind protection and rain cover under our durable, stylish timber buildings and shelters.

    Adding a smoking shelter to your garden will not only keep the elements at bay during your break, but you can keep tobacco smoke contained which can protect children and pets from its harmful effects. Our timber pavilions, gazebos and canopies are the ideal addition to a garden, and can provide many different functions as well. You could entertain guests over drinks on an evening, create a safe spot for the children to play with their toys, or just give yourself a quiet place to relax with a good book. Having a shelter in your garden will allow you to spend much more time outside and enjoy your garden outside of the summer months.

    You can make your new smoking shelter, gazebo or pagoda match the style of your garden, with a choice of designs available. Every product we make can be finished to your liking, allowing for extra weatherproofing, painting and more. Whether you want a bright and colourful shelter or a subtle, natural look, versatile timber can be treated in a way that suits your garden and your tastes. Topped off with high quality roofing that can withstand any storm, your shelter will keep the rain away from you while you are out in your garden, and shade you from the sun on hot summer days too. If you want to spend more time enjoying the outdoors, consider the difference a new shelter could make to your garden. Take a look at the extensive range offered by Live Outside today.

  • Add value to your home with outdoor furniture

    More and more people are turning to professional interior designers to help them market their homes and get the best possible price for their property - from tweaking a few bits and bobs, to carrying out a full-scale home makeover project before it goes on the market.

    It's not just the inside of a property that needs some love to ensure that your home sells for a great price though; equally important are the outside areas of your property, how they're maintained and the vibe that they give off.

    It's important to remember that when you sell a home, you're also trying to sell a lifestyle, and a fabulous outdoor area could make potential buyers fantasise about the fabulous BBQs, fancy garden parties and relaxed al-fresco dining they could enjoy if they lived in your home.

    Of course, the most important thing about your outdoor space is that it's neat, tidy and well looked after. Mow the lawn regularly when your home is on the market and keep on top of any weeding - hard work as it may be, it will make it look much more appealing to potential buyers if it's well kept.

    Installing a gazebo or garden arbour could pay dividends in terms of the rise in your home's value - people will appreciate having a high quality timber structure that's ready for them to move into and start enjoying immediately, making the garden vastly more appealing for a very modest initial outlay.

    Ensure any outdoor furniture is looking its best when potential buyers come to visit; benches should be casually strewn with throw cushions, and trellises or arbours should be trailing with beautiful plants - in so far as it's possible, obviously making your garden appealing in the winter months is a little more tricky!

    If you'd like to discuss options for installing some of our beautiful, high quality furniture in your garden, get in touch with us today to see what we've got on offer and how we're able to help.

  • Why carports are invaluable throughout the year

    A carport is one of the most useful garden structures you can buy: they can help protect your car from potential thieves while adding value to your property. They can also protect it from the elements. However, you may wonder if protection from the weather is really necessary all year round. If not, are carports really worth investing in? We believe that a carport is a worthy investment: the protection from the weather that a carport can offer is invaluable throughout all the seasons of the year.

    Winter

    Protecting your car from the brutal weather conditions of winter is one of the most obvious uses for a carport. Torrential rain, sleet and heavy snow are all inevitable parts of winter in Britain. A carport can shelter your vehicle and prevent it from being dirtied or damaged by harsh winter weather. If you want to keep your vehicle clean and safe throughout winter and you don’t have a garage, a carport is definitely your best option.

    Spring

    April showers may feel refreshing, but they can still make your car dirty. This is because rain-drops carry particles of grime and pollution. You may be surprised by how useful a carport is for keeping your car pristine during the seemingly-innocuous spring season.

    Summer

    The intense heat of the summer months can be great for sun-bathing, but it can also make getting into your car rather unpleasant. If you leave your car out in the summer sun, the interior can often become baking hot. Nobody wants to drive a vehicle that’s almost too hot to sit in! A carport can provide shade and keep your vehicle cool during summer.

    Autumn

    The poet John Keats once described autumn as the “season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”. Unfortunately, it’s also the season of strong winds and falling leaves. If you leave you car exposed during autumn, it is likely to get battered by gusts of wind and covered in dead leaves. However, a carport is a great way to protect your vehicle from these indignities.

    It’s tempting to think that carports only provide protection from the weather during the harshest months of winter. In reality, however, investing in a carport will help you defend your vehicle from the elements throughout the year.

  • Vibrant colour schemes can make your garden structures even more eye-catching

    Traditionally, garden structures are painted smartly but plainly. But is this really your only option? If you want to exercise your creativity, you could opt to give your garden a splash of colour by painting your garden structures brightly. There’s no reason to restrict yourself to plain, uniform colour schemes when decorating the structures in your garden; feel free to express yourself instead!

    Larger, more complicated structures such as gazebos and garden arbours can often look spectacular when painted using multiple different colours. You may even choose to pair plainer colours with brighter ones in order to create a visually remarkable contrast. For example, you could paint the majority of a gazebo white but give it a striking red roof. Of course, if you have a reasonably high level of artistic ability or the patience to paint very carefully, you may wish to experiment with painting larger garden structures with elaborate or interesting patterns.

    However, it may not be advisable to apply multiple paint colours to smaller or less complex garden structures, such as fencing and garden arches. This is because the smaller, simpler structures may be overwhelmed somewhat by more complicated colour schemes. But you can still paint them bright, cheerful colours to give them a more arresting appearance.

    Of course, if you want to paint your garden structures brightly, it’s important to apply a consistent overall colour scheme across all your different structures. This will help unify the different parts of your garden and prevent your selected colours from looking garish or mismatched. You might be surprised how good brightly-hued garden structures can look, provided you utilise a consistent overall colour scheme.

    In a previous blog entry, we mentioned that winter is the perfect time to repaint certain garden structures, as you won’t have to remove or work around verdant plant-life to apply the paint. Choosing to paint your garden structures using bright, vibrant colours is a particularly good idea during the winter months, as it will enable them to bring cheer to your garden during the bleakest time of the year. So if you’ve got garden structures that need a fresh coat of paint, don’t be afraid to unleash your creative side!

  • Swing into the new year with a hammock!

    There can't be many more relaxing ways to while away a warm summer afternoon than lying in a comfortable hammock. It is the ultimate chill-out accessory and if you want to create the ideal living garden space and have already invested in a pagoda or gazebo, a nice table and chairs, plus a barbecue, a hammock will add the perfect finishing touch.

  • Stave off the January blues this new year with a new garden structure

    Traditionally, January is one of the saddest times of the year for many people. After the joy of celebrating Christmas and New Year, as well as the other festivities that occur in the early winter like Halloween and Bonfire Night, it can be hard to adjust to going back to normal. However, while many of us do suffer from the January blues every year, there are things that we can do counteract them, and perhaps get rid of them altogether. So, with that in mind, here's two reasons why a new garden structure is the perfect way to battle through those January blues this new year, starting with keeping yourself active! Continue reading
