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.

Three reasons raised vegetable beds are a garden must-have

Growing fruit and vegetables at home has become hugely popular over recent years, with people trying their hands at everything from a few small herb pots on the window sill to full-size allotment plots stuffed with delicious produce. There are plenty of benefits to growing your own food; it’s healthier, tastier and better for the environment - but it can also be time consuming and tricky to get right, which is why using raised vegetable beds could be the answer to all your gardening woes.

Soil quality

A strong plant needs a strong foundation, and this comes straight from the soil you plant it in; garden soil is notoriously difficult to grow in, and is often full of clay and stones and lacks nourishment. One option is to use a rotavator to dig plenty of compost and soil improver through, but this can be a pretty costly exercise. A far easier alternative is to add some raised beds to your garden - as they sit on top of the existing soil, you can simply fill them with compost and nutrient-rich fertilisers, and then plant away.

Ease of access

Raised vegetable beds are placed on top of the existing soil or land, which makes them considerably higher than the rest of the garden - this can be especially beneficial to people who suffer from mobility issues such as arthritis and chronic back pain, as it means less bending over. Large wooden planters are also a good option for gardeners with disabilities; these are essentially raised beds with legs, which makes them ideal for individuals who may have trouble with excessive movement.

Increased drainage

Drainage is one of the most common problems in gardening. Excessively clay-based soils can make it impossible for water to escape, leaving the roots of your plants and seedlings constantly waterlogged. Raised beds eliminate this problem, as they allow you to maximise soil quality and improve drainage. Mixing in a layer of horticultural grit to the bottom before adding the compost is another great way to make sure the roots of your plants have access to the air they need.
