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.

Planters versus greenhouses

In addition to our range of gorgeous gazebos, terrific trellises and amazing arbours, we also sell greenhouses with elegant wooden frames and garden planters in a huge range of styles. But which is the best option for you? Should you invest in planters so you can grow your plants in the open air, or purchase a greenhouse that can protect them from harsh weather and provide them with a warmer environment? The answer depends on the kind of plants you want to grow, the size of your garden and, of course, your unique sense of style.

1. What do you want to grow?

Some plants will grow perfectly well in your garden, whereas others need the protection of a greenhouse. As a general rule, plants that are native to the UK can survive outdoor conditions comfortably and should be planted outside in planters. In contrast, plants that typically grow in warmer climates and have been imported to Britain often require greenhouse conditions to flourish. In short, you should invest in planters if you want to grow local plant species and you should invest in a greenhouse if you want to grow something more exotic.

2. How big is your garden?

Greenhouses are fairly large structures, so they may not be suitable for smaller, more compact gardens. After all, you probably don’t want to include multiple planting areas or garden structures in your garden, so you may not wish to use up all the available space on a single greenhouse. Consequently, we recommend that you use planters in smaller gardens. Of course, greenhouses can be integrated easily into larger gardens.

3. What style of garden do you want?

When choosing between a greenhouse and planters, you should think carefully about how you want your garden to look. Do you want a garden that is defined by elegant structures or a garden that brims with different types of plantlife? If you prefer a more structured garden, you may wish to opt for a greenhouse, whereas if you prefer a wilder garden with a focus on plants, planters would be ideal for you.

Of course, in order to make your final decision, you’ll need to carefully balance the different factors that we have discussed in today’s blog post. When you’ve made your decision, check out our ‘grow your own’ page to see our range of planters and greenhouses.
