Venrtian Arbour

The delivery was one hour earlier than I was told it would be, the driver did ring before arrival, there was a problen with the bolt holes on the main post, they did not line up, they were out by 1/2 inch . I had to cut 1/4 inch off both pieces of the post to make them fit. Other than that, a nice quality good value Arbour, I have enhanced it by putting trellis in the open windows and filled in the bottom at the back with fence wood to stop drafts.

Just what I wanted.

Great delivery. Phoned when 45 mins away. Helpful drivers. Arbour is still sitting in pieces in the garage waiting for a sunny day! but all parts and screws were correct and it looks to be of good value. I am looking forward to next year when I can sit out in it in the garden.

Fantastic!

This is a great product and excellent quality for the price. Great value through this site - the product is available elsewhere for considerably more. As other reviewers have noted, the instructions could be better but we managed to build it within a couple of hours nonetheless and it looks great. I'm absolutely delighted and the service through this site was second to none. The delivery driver was extremely helpful and very friendly.

Venetian Corner Arbour Seat

Nice product but as previous reviewers have noted needs a lot of time and patience to put together as sections such as the slatted roof need to be trimmed to fit correctly.

Very pleasing

I agree with most of the other comments. The product certainly enhances the garden and I am pleased I bought it, but assembly is tricky, requires careful reading of the instructions (which could be better laid out) and certainly you need to pre-drill the holes and have an electric screwdriver. I also failed to get the seat slats to meet in the middle.

Corner your Arbour

This was significantly cheaper through this site so wins on value for money. The quality is good but you do need to have the right tools for the job. Making sure you read the instructions is essential. I found pre drilling the holes before assembly very useful and a power screw driver will reduce the construction time. If you put in Place T&g boarding to fill the lower levels make sure you assemble the seats before final fixing. If you paint the structure it takes about 5 litres. I used two colours and about 2.5l of each for 2 coats. I also painted the parts before assembly and touched up after assembly. This took about 15-20 hours. Overall worthwhile and good value for money. I regrettably was not there for the delivery so it was delivered but the parts were slightly spread out. Overall effective delivery.

Good result overall

Overall effect is very good and looks great in the garden. Rather roughly cut wood and the supplied carriage bolt is too short requiring a trip the local DIY store.

Questions and Answers (15)

Michelle Asked:

I would like to secure the 8ft x 5ft Venetian Corner Arbour Seat to an elevated decking area. Is the product suitable for securing with metal brackets or should it be sunk into the ground?

We Replied:

Dear Michelle Thank you fo your question. The product is fine on a decking area. In fact we had a similar building on a raised decked area in our garden centre. Due to the weight it won't need securing down unless you want to. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Eric williams Asked:

Does the slatted roof stop the rainwater from getting through?

We Replied:

Dear Eric Thank you for your question. The roof is not waterproof. However, I have been under it in a storm and been dry so it does depend on the direction of the rain. Other Gazebos with a solid roof are available at /Garden_Structures/Garden_Gazebos/ Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Colin Truman Asked:

Can you configure the arbour seat for the longest side to be on the left of right, or only as the picture indicates longest side on the right?

We Replied:

Dear Colin Thank you for your question. The product cannot be changed as it is not a bespoke product. The product has equal lengths as seen in the diagram /database_images/8cc7115e1d00ca6152edd13133aa92a8_original.jpg Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.

Nick Cooke Asked:

I am confused by the dimensions and would appreciate your clarification. Does width mean distance from the left hand corner looking head on at the arbour to the right hand corner - measured at the base of the roof - and footprint from the equivalent posts at ground level? Does depth mean from the extreme back corner directly away from the entrance to the front edge at the base of the roof, and then footprint again at ground level?

We Replied:

Dear Nick Thank you for your question. Measurements are always maximum (end of roof for example) unless otherwise stated. Yes the footprint is the base as opposed to the roof measurements which are slightly more due to the overhang. I have amended the dimensions to make it easier to understand. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Nathan James Dodd

Brian Wiseman Asked:

How easy would it be to extend the tongue and grooved backs to the same level as the bottom of the sides? I'd rather have the backs of the seats shielded from the wind and weather. Could the manufacturer supply the necessary materials?

We Replied:

Dear Brian Thank you for your question. Relatively easy as you can use the uprights to secure any additional wooden boards to create more shelter from wind and rain. The T&G boards can be sourced from your local DIY store. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system.

June Asked:

I shall be shortly ordering this product and the intended site is against a 150cm fence on the two back sides. For future maintenance is it easy to remove the back panels for painting or staining?

We Replied:

Dear June Thank you for your question. You would need to access the back panels from outside to remove them. So the simplest and quickest option might be to get enough able bodied guys simply to pick it up and move it out and back in again, obviously bearing in mind the weight with regard to all health and safety considerations. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Robert Hall

Pete Asked:

I am still confused about the dimensions of the Venetian Corner Arbour. What is the width of the front edge of the bench seat? And what is the width of the back edge of the bench seat? I am trying to determine if 4 people can sit comfortably.

We Replied:

Dear Pete Thank you for your question. This arbour will seat three adults comfortably, and four depending on their size. The front bench length is 31ins at the front and 46ins along the back.

Ann Hall Asked:

What is the best type of base for this arbour seat?

We Replied:

Dear Ann Thank you for your question. Ideally the legs will need to stand on a hardstanding surface like a slab, bricks, concrete, decking or compacted ground otherwise they will sink into the ground. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Nathan James Dodd

Thursday 24th, March, 2016
Ian Asked:

Would this arbour seat be more secure if screwed into metal spike 'shoes'? Do you supply these and, if so, what's the price for six?

We Replied:

Dear Ian Thank you for your question. We have had one on display in our garden centre coffee shop area for the past year and it is not secured. It is in a sheltered spot on paving slabs and as a result has not needed to be secured. The seat will need securing if it is in an exposed spot where the wind could blow it over. If you need spikes then follow this link: /Landscaping/Forest_fencefast_easyfit_spike_Spike_length_600mm.htm Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.
