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.

  • Carports: everything you need to know

    Adding a carport to your property is a fantastic way of maximising space and improving kerb appeal; modern designs are stylish, practical and hassle-free, and our bespoke wooden collection is environmentally friendly too. Carports also have numerous benefits over garages, allowing air to circulate freely around your vehicle or caravan, for instance, thus minimising damp or mould during the harsh winter months. If you've never considered a carport, here is our lowdown on everything you need to know.

    What about planning permission?

    Unlike some garages, such as those attached to the wall of an existing property, you will most likely not need planning permission to erect a carport, meaning installation can happen as quickly as you need. The exception to this is if the carport you require takes up more than 50% of the entire ground floor of your home. Even in this instance, however, permission is not always needed and we can advise you accordingly.

    Are there limits on size?

    UK regulations state that carports must not exceed 2.5m in height and must be single-storey with no balconies or overhangs. In terms of length and width, you can choose whichever size of structure fits your needs. Our extensive carport collection ranges from smaller single vehicle structures up to larger designs which can house a number of vehicles, vans or caravans. We can also design a bespoke carport to precisely fit your needs: over 50% of our buildings are tailored upon customer request.

    Will adding a carport increase the value of my property?

    Carports are undoubtedly highly thought-of by potential buyers as they maximise space and can be used not just for housing vehicles, but also offering an alfresco entertaining area in poor weather, a shaded play space for children and extra storage solutions.

    What are Liveoutside carports made from?

    All of our carports are made from high quality timber, which as well as looking fantastic, also offers a much more eco-friendly solution than using plastics or metals. The wood we use in our builds is all covered with a water-based preservative, Tanalith E, which effectively protects the fibres and leads to a longer life. Indeed, we are so confident that you won't experience any decay in your carport that all of our designs come with a 10-year guarantee against rot.

  • Decorate your bare trellis this winter to help nature and your mood

    While your plants may have had an extra good run this year thanks to the mild autumn, now the cold weather has arrived, they will be dying back. That may leave your Liveoutside trellis fencing, no matter how stylish-looking, a bit bare in the winter. Now might be a good time to repaint, stain or refresh any panels that are starting to show their age, or add some topping or extra panels to make things look a bit more cheery. Don't just go for neutral or wooden tones, bright stains can really help add life to a garden and look gorgeous in the morning frost.

    You can also add some extras such as ornaments, winter lights, bird feeders and other accessories to make them stand out despite the lack of foliage. Other ideas include using artistic frames of various shades to create some stylish decor, or you can add bright ceramic or plastic plants to create some artificial cheer.

    If you want some real plants that can live through the cold season, then Winter Jasmine is a fine addition, and will withstand the hardiest of weather. Small pot plants can also be attached to trellis, to brighten them up during warmer days, before removing them to safety of the house overnight. These can also help feed the odd hardy bee and other insects that we still see bumbling about in the ever-changing weather. Doing your bit for these confused birds and insects will certainly put your trellis to some good use.

    You can go off beat by putting pots in decorative wellies, or coloured indoor cubes that will easily attach to the trellis via a clip or screw. So, there's no reason to let the miserable weather put a downer on your garden this winter. Get creative and decorate your trellis in whatever is to hand or whatever you can find around your local garden centre to brighten things up.

    The same can be done with a pagoda, garden arch or other feature, with metallic animal life a popular choice in stores this year. So, get creative and ensure you don't suffer a boring garden this winter.

  • Winter is here, but your garden structures can still bring you joy

    It’s easy to assume that garden structures (such as gazebos, trellises, arbours and arches) are only designed for the summer months. As the skies darken and the winds become cooler, it can be tempting to forget about your existing garden structures and refrain from buying new ones until the winter is over. In reality, however, garden structures can provide enormous benefits, even during the coldest part of the year. As we discussed in a previous blog entry, a garden arbour or a gazebo can give you enough shelter to enjoy your garden when the weather is cold. However, there are also more subtle advantages to having garden structures during the winter.

    The most obvious benefit is purely aesthetic. Imagine waking up to see your garden gazebo covered with a light dusting of snow on a particularly cold day. Think about the delicate tracery of frost that will form in latticework of your garden trellis during crisp winter mornings. The simple truth is that an elegant garden structure can be transfigured into something arrestingly beautiful during winter.

    Garden structures may also provide temporary sanctuaries for animals in the chill weather: birds may perch in the shelter of your gazebo, or small creatures may take refuge from the wind by your fencing. Of course, not all gardens are able to attract wildlife. However, if yours is well-placed, you should keep a close eye on your garden structures as the weather turns cold: you never know what you might see.

    Of course, some garden structures (primarily trellises and fencing) can also offer shelter to any winter plants you might choose to grow. Even hardy winter plants can be damaged by excessive wind or precipitation: garden structures can help block some of the elements and thereby give your plants a chance to thrive.

    The benefits of garden structures aren’t always obvious in the winter months. In reality, though, your garden structures do have something to offer you all year round, even during the harshest part of the year. Your garden structures can be beautiful, attract wildlife to your garden and protect your plants. So if you want a new structure, don’t wait until the summer arrives: visit the e-commerce section of our site today.

  • How to create a sectional garden using simple structures

    Garden structures such as gazebos, garden arches and fencing can be beautiful and useful in their own right. However, they can also help to craft a neat but varied garden by dividing it into different sections. It can sometimes feel as though you don’t have enough space in your garden to put in all the features that you want without them clashing. Creating a sectional garden is a fantastic way of resolving this problem. You don’t have to be an expert in landscape design (or even own a particularly large garden) to use garden structures to create an interesting and diverse garden layout. All you need is a little imagination and a willingness to experiment. Continue reading

  • Add oriental interest to your back garden

    If your back garden is starting to feel a bit stale and suburban then it might be time for a change - make it the kind of outdoor area you're proud to show off! Ditch the dahlias and crazy paving and choose a look that's up to the minute and fun to spend time in.

    An oriental theme is the perfect way to make your garden look fashionable and up to date, and you can take the theme as far as you like. Choose some beautiful cherry trees and acers to add a gorgeous dash of colour whatever the season - your garden will look fresh and pastel in the spring months and fiery and vibrant later on in the year.

    Create a sheltered area with a pagoda and you can channel a Japanese look further; opt for neutral stains for a more reserved look or choose a rich dark reddish brown for a look that's straight out of a guidebook. Not only will a pagoda add visual interest to your garden, but with the great British summertime as unpredictable as it is, you might be glad of somewhere to shelter when you're having a BBQ next summer!

    For the ultimate in oriental style, install a pond outside and populate it with Koi Carp. It's the perfect place to put a bench too, where you can watch the fish swimming - you'll find it makes your garden feel very tranquil and relaxing, ideal for escaping the stresses of everyday life. Koi Carp can be expensive to buy and look after, so for a budget option choose fancy breeds of goldfish - it's surprising how big they can grow outdoors.

    Of course, is subtlety is not what you're after then a well placed Buddha statue or two could really be the icing on the cake of your Asian theme. By picking just one or two of these ideas you can create an oriental flavour to your garden that isn't too overwhelming, to create a beautiful and usable outdoor space for you and your family.

  • Put your summerhouse to work

    For the dedicated crafter, you’ve probably wished many times for a space in your house that is just for your hobby, especially if your crafting space tends to be the kitchen or dining room table.

  • 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. Continue reading

  • Summer houses back in vogue

    The summerhouse is back in fashion and now you can relive your fond childhood memories with your own family, thanks to a timber summerhouse that you can even use as an office.

    The summerhouse was a stalwart of the British garden for decades, before the more humble shed came in to take its place. With a new appreciation for outdoor space, though, as well as more people working at home and needing a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of the family, they’re coming back into fashion.
