    Shed and Fence Treatment Harvest Gold 5ltr -

    £14.49

    Our Shed and Fence Treatment in Harvest Gold is very easy to apply and extends the life of the timber. This resin enriched timber preservative is suitable for rough sawn or smooth planed timber.

    This timber treatment is quick drying, low odour, fade resistant and water repellent. It offers an opaque matt/satin finish but allows the texture of the wood to show through. Please note: if used on smooth planed timber, the resulting colour may be paler than if used on rough sawn timber. Two coats are therefore recommended for best results for smooth planed timber. The treatment contains special colourfast pigments which bond to the wood ensuring lasting beauty.

    One 5L tub supplied. 1 Litre will cover 4-8 square meters if one coat applied.

    Brushes and splashes can be cleaned with water. It is harmless to plants and pets when used as directed.

    Also available in Dark Brown.

Description

The 8’ x 6’ Forest Shiplap Potting Shed (1.8m x 2.4m) provides the ideal environment to nurture young plants and offers secure garden storage for tools and equipment too.

Expertly designed and built by one of the UK's leading shed manufacturers, this wooden shed is constructed from 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding and features a clever modular design. This means it is delivered in smaller sections, making it far easier to assemble than other garden sheds. The modular design also results in more extensive 28mm shed framing, ensuring an incredibly robust structure and far greater resistance to warping.

The floor is built from 14mm pressure-treated, solid-timber boards, so is ideally equipped to store heavier items and withstand frequent footfall. The roof is made from 8mm OSB, and includes a premium mineral felt cover for complete weatherproof protection.

Smooth-planed barge boards and 2 finials round off an attractive, traditional appearance. All of the wood is FSC®-certified, so only sourced from sustainable, well-managed forests.

Access to this 8x6 shed is gained via a ledged and braced door, which can be positioned at either end of the structure and with a left or right-hand opening. It is fitted with a pad bolt to keep valuable tools safe from unwanted attention (padlock not included).

Once inside, 10 fixed windows ensure an abundance of natural light, while 2 further opening windows allow welcome ventilation for gardeners and plants alike. This PET glazing is completely shatterproof, and will neither discolour nor become brittle over time.

Two sets of 2-tier staging are included too, offering plenty of room for pots, growbags and more. The staging can be positioned together, next to the fixed windows, or separately in the corners of the shed.

This potting shed is supplied dip-treated and should be coated in a quality wood preservative, annually, in order to maintain its handsome appearance and validate the excellent 10-year anti-rot guarantee.

Fixings, instructions and the easily-manoeuvrable modular sections all ensure a simple assembly.

Delivery is free to most UK addresses.

Take a look at the accessories we sell to complement this shed. They include top-quality wood preservative, adjustable shed shelving, and a solar power station to provide free, off-grid electricity.

The perfect solution for growing and storage

PLANT STAGING INCLUDED

Supplied with two sets of two-tier plant staging.

FLEXIBLE DOORS

Single door can be fitted with a left- or right-hand opening.

  • treatment

    Dip treatment coats the timber in a preservative, which protects the wood from rot and fungal decay. When supported by annual applications, this treatment provides at least a decade of protection.

  • cladding

    Shiplap cladding offers strength, durability and the traditional style we all know and love. Its exceptionally high quality means the panels are less prone to warping or developing gaps.

  • tongue-and-groove

    The robust 14mm pressure-treated boarded-timber floor will withstand the storage of heavier items and years of constant footfall. It is further strengthened by pressure-treated bearers, and is far superior to the flooring in standard garden buildings.

  • roof covering

    The roof is made from 8mm OSB and comes with a premium mineral felt covering. This ensures it is tough, durable and completely weathertight.

  • windows

    Ten fixed windows allow an abundance of natural light to flow into the shed, while 2 further opening windows provide you with welcome ventilation on a hot, sunny day. The glazing is made from PET, so is far stronger than standard horticultural glass, will never discolour and is completely shatterproof.

  • doors

    The single door can be positioned at either side of the shed, with a left or right-hand opening. It is ledged, braced and fitted with a pad bolt, so rest assured that your valuable tools will remain safe from unwanted attention (padlock not supplied).

Comes with a 10-year anti-rot guarantee

Dip Treatment boards are coated in anti-fungal solution

Installation available

Quick and easy construction

Dip Treatment Process Explained

Dip treatment is a tried and tested method of applying wood preservative to timber products. First, the timber is dipped into a cylinder containing a powerful wood preservative. The preservative is then absorbed into the surface of the timber and, after being removed and left to dry, it will be thoroughly protected against both rot and fungal decay.

Once the dip treatment process is completed, the timber will have a lovely orangey-brown hue, making it an attractive garden feature and complementing most fence panels. Of course, you can choose to paint your dip treated shed another colour upon assembly.

step 1
Dip

Timber is dipped into a cylinder containing preservative.

step 2
Absorb

Preservative is absorbed into the surface of the timber.

step 3
Remove

Timber is removed from the cylinder of preservative.

step 4
Dry

Timber is left to dry.

 

WILL REQUIRE RE-TREATMENT AT LEAST EVERY OTHER YEAR
