    Fence & Shed Treatment 5ltr Harvest Gold -

    £14.49

    Offering fade resistant, water repellent protection, this Harvest Gold shed and fence treatment is easy to apply and will extend the life of your outdoor timber.

    Enriched with resin, the timber preservative is quick drying and low odour for easy application. It creates an opaque semi-matt, semi-satin finish which allows the texture of the wood to show through. Suitable for either rough sawn or smooth planed timber (above ground), the colour may appear paler on smooth-planed wood. Therefore, we recommend two coats for a stronger colour finish.

    As the treatment is water based, brushes and splashes can easily be washed with water. Used correctly, this treatment is safe for plants and animals.

    One 5L tub is provided. Each litre will provide one coat covering approximately 6mof timber.

    • simple application
    • low odour
    • fade resistant
    • water repellent
    • water-based for easy clean-up
    • suitable for rough sawn or smooth-planed timber
    • one 5L tub provided (1L covers approx 6m2, one coat)
    • if applying to pressure treated timber, wait 6 weeks after assembly before using

Description

Robust, durable and exceptionally easy to assemble, the 8 x 6 Forest Shiplap Potting Shed (1.8m x 2.4m) is made in Great Britain and comes with a superb 10-year anti-rot guarantee.

Expertly designed and constructed by one of Britain’s leading shed manufacturers, this wooden shed is built from premium 12mm shiplap tongue and groove cladding on a strong 28mm frame.

The smaller panels and more extensive framing make this potting shed far stronger than a standard shed. The modular design also means the panels are less prone to warping and supremely weathertight.

Built from 14mm solid-timber boards, the floor is pressure-treated to prevent rot and perfectly equipped to store your heavier items. The roof is constructed from 8mm OSB and fitted with a superior mineral felt cover for enhanced weatherproof protection.

Smooth-planed barge boards and 2 finials round off an attractive, traditional appearance, which is sure to complement the rest of your garden beautifully. The timber used is FSC®-certified, which is the only wood-certification scheme endorsed by all of the major environmental charities.

You can gain easy access to this 8x6 shed via a single door, which can be positioned at either end of the shed, and with a left or right-hand opening. It is ledged, braced and fitted with a pad bolt, so rest assured that your valuable tools and invaluable plants will be safe from unwanted attention (padlock not supplied).

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. These windows also ensure that your plants enjoy the conditions they need to thrive. The glazing is made from PET, so is far stronger than standard horticultural glass, will never discolour and is completely shatterproof, making it the perfect glazing for a potting shed in a busy, family-orientated garden.

We supply 2 sets of 2-tier staging, providing you with ample space for your plant pots, seed trays and growbags. Position this staging next to the fixed windows or in the corners of the shed – the choice is entirely yours.

This potting shed for sale is delivered to you dip-treated. You must coat it in a quality wood preservative, once a year, to maintain its handsome appearance and validate the superb 10-year anti-rot guarantee.

A full set of fixings and clear assembly instructions are both included. Together with the modular design, this should help you achieve an easy installation.

We also stock some great products to customise your shed. These include heavy-duty, height-adjustable shed shelves and a solar power station. The latter is simple to instal and allows you to power your shed with free, eco-friendly electricity – perfect for lighting, laptops and more. Of course, you can also purchase premium wood preservative to keep your new potting shed in prime condition.

Free delivery is available to most UK postcodes.

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

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
