Mention colour in the garden and people automatically think of planting, hanging baskets, bedding, etc. However there are other ways to add a new lease of life to dull areas which you have been meaning to do something with for a while. Ronseal has released a new range of colour and protection for garden wood, the woodland trust range of opaque finishes, to make your garden wood look beautiful.
These products are fade resistant, wax enriched, and rainproof in two hours. The most amazing thing with these paints is their affordability. A 750ml can retails at only €8.49 and the 2.5lt can retails for only €17.99.
Rather than replace old, faded, wooden garden furniture or other timber garden products, why not use these colours to bring them back from the brink and use them to brighten up your garden. These products can be used on dog kennels, sheds, doors, timber beams, furniture, and anything you can see from your kitchen window that is made from timber and needs improvement.
T O'Higgins also has products for cleaning timber in the garden. Once woodstains and paints have leeched or faded from the timber over time, lichen and algae have a chance of establishing themselves, and then comes splitting and decay. Cleaning the timber down with a moss-buster (which also kills lichen and algae, 5ltr for €14.99 ) or a garden furniture cleaner from HG (750ml for €6.99 ) will prepare the wood for its topcoat, a sanding if necessary, and then choose your colour from sage greens to mellow blues and earthy browns. T O’Higgins also has a wide range of decking oil, fence treatments, and general woodstains for other projects in the garden.
