The Accoya wood manufacturing process is Non Toxic and adds nothing to the wood that does not naturally occur.
Class 1 durability with a 25 year timber guarantee against rot or decay in ground contact.
Accoya is 100% environmentally friendly FSC sourced timber ideal for garden use - unlike lower cost 'treated timber'.

Sustainable Timber FSC
All the timber that we use, Oak, Accoya and Medite Tricoya Extreme panels are FSC sourced and are fully traceable
Genuine Quality Paints
We only use the highest quality, environmentally friendly water based paints exterior paint, including those from Farrow & Ball and the Little Greene Paint Company.
Each painted obelisk is hand painted with a priming undercoat and a minimum of 3 top coats in the colour of your choice. Whenever 'wood stain' has been chosen for the "paint finish" 2 or 3 coats will be applied, as required to achieve a satisfactory finish. Wood stain finish will have areas that have some translucency where the timber will show through.
All obelisks and planters are painted within our temperature controlled paint booth to ensure that the painting process is carried out within the correct temperature range, as required by the paint manufacturers guidelines.
