Wooden Garden Obelisk - Accoya

We offer Wooden Garden Obelisk made from Oak or Accoya and Wooden Garden Planters made from Accoya, a modified timber, with excellent durability qualities and comes with the following guarantee against decay, 50 years above ground or 25 years in the ground.

See our new Accoya website for detailed information about the benefits of Accoya Timber

Accoya wood offers you an environmentally compatible, durable wood that can be used with confidence in outdoor applications and will last for many, many years. Accoya wood forms an effective barrier to insect attack; it is indigestible to microorganisms and insects and therefore more durable to wood-destroying fungi and virtually rot-proof.

The paints we use are all from the exterior ranges of Farrow & Ball, Little Greene or Cuprinol Garden Shades. Each painted obelisk is hand painted with an undercoat and a minimum of 2 top coats in the colour of your choice.

Our Obelisks are frequently purchased as unique gifts for Birthdays, Weddings, Christenings, Anniversaries, Christmas as well as Retirement presents. If the obelisk is to be a surprise gift then please let us know and we will do our very best to ensure that It remains that way.
