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.

5 tips for protecting your garden structures from decay

For many, gardens are viewed as another room of their home; an oasis of relaxation to escape to at the end of a busy day, a space to socialise with friends, and somewhere for children to play.

While the UK climate may be somewhat unpredictable, we do enjoy enough warmth and sunshine throughout the year to encourage most to take full advantage of their outdoor space by adding features and structures that enhance their garden experience.

Many gardens across the UK are home to gazebos; these are pavilion structures which provide shelter, shade and a place to relax and dine. Other popular garden structures include pagodas, garden arbours and arches.

The vast majority of garden structures are made of wood and are completely exposed to the elements. Year round your gazebo, arbour, trellis, arch or pagoda is exposed to sun, wind, rain and snow and you will need to take measures to protect your wooden structure if you want it to last.

How to protect your wooden structure:

1. While it's a good idea to keep your wooden garden structure free of dirt and debris by removing any leaves, moss or plants growing on it, avoid using excess water while doing so. This is because you can extend the life of your structure by taking care not to over-expose it to water.

2. If you have a roofed gazebo or arbour, check the roof on a regular basis; remove branches or leaves that have fallen or blown onto the roof to discourage roof leaks that will compromise the structure over time.

3. Make good use of readily available sprays, surface paints and stains which are specially produced to protect outdoor wood from water and other damaging weather elements.

4. Not all wood is equal, so the best way you can care for your garden's structures is to ensure you buy a quality item in the first place. Low quality timber will always degrade faster than higher quality wood, no matter how well you care for it.

5. Drainage is also key. Avoid having your gazebo, arbour, trellis or pagoda sitting in puddles of water or poorly drained soil. Standing water is very much your enemy.
