Great looking seat

Seat arrived on time. Wasn't able to build it immediately and when I did found the front panel a bit Saint, so it wouldn't fit. I phoned customer service who were great to deal with and suggested I sent a photo of part so they could replace it. The replacement arrived 2 days later. Have built chair and it is exactly what I was looking for, looks great. As in other reviews, pre-drilled holes would have been great. Would recommend web site. All in all, delighted!

Great looking piece of garden furniture

Delivery arrived on time, the Arbour was relatively easy to assemble my only suggestions would be that pre drilled holes would be a great idea and save plenty of time during assembly, and the pictures in the instructions could be better . That said it took two of us about 2 hours to complete. The product is of good quality and looks very impressive in the garden.

Value for money garden arbour

Very pleased with this product which is very solid, strong and has a good appearance. I managed to erect it myself but it was a struggle it is a two man job. I would recommend the product to anyone. Delivery service quick and driver helpful. The three cartons were very heavy but he carried them up my drive and placed them in my garage for me.

Thrilled with our Purchase

Delivery promtly and without damage, good start. It could have been pre-drilled so with that in mind electric or powered screw driver suggested, made it a slow construction. 2 person job without question, this is a heavy bit of kit. Once finished we are thrilled looks great purchased a waterproof seat pad elsewhere, as choices a bit boring. Would fully rate this product.

Highly delighted

We are really pleased with our purchase. It looks classy and is very solid and well constructed. Definitely a two person job to erect - quite heavy and tricky to lift otherwise, but relatively straightforward. We love it!

Worth The Money

I was surprised how solid it was and put it together myself with two cordless drills one with a pilot bit and the other with a screw bit ,I carefully laid it and put the sides on then slowly set square and upright enabling me to continue the front seat and then complete the upper sections to finally carefully seat the roof on top and fix down then with an extra piece of timber I reinforced the inside centre of the roof apex giving it a bit more strength and then coated he outside with a Ronseal coloured timber paint and coated the roof with "Black Magic" and all in all I am quite pleased .

Dorset Arbour Good Stuff!

Dorset Arbour proved the right choice. It was quite easy to put together though two people required. Pre drilled holes would have been helpful. Very sturdy and looks good. It made a great Christmas present!

steve holmes Asked:

Agnes Asked:

What product should be used to 'paint' the Dorset Storage Garden Arbour?

We Replied:

Dear Agnes Thank you for your question. We suggest either a Ronseal or Cuprinol exterior wood paint. The arbour however does not need a preservative as it is already pressure treated. 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

Al Asked:

Is it necessary to anchor the arbour into the ground?

We Replied:

Dear Alan Thank you for your question. It is not necessary to anchor the arbour into the ground as it is stable enough to stand alone. It will only possibly fall over in very high winds. I suggest sinking the feet into the ground a few inches if you have an open garden which suffers from high winds. 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 Ellie Goodall

Dear Thom Thank you for your question. It is waterproof. We have them in our garden centre and they stay dry all year round. 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

Could you please tell me how big the gap is between the floor and the bottom of the storage box?

Sam Asked:

How is the storage box accessed, from the top by lifting the seat up or does it pull out?

We Replied:

Dear Sam Thank you for your question. The storage box is accessed from the top by lifting the seat up as you suggest. It is hinged at the rear. I hope this helps. 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

Sharon O'Donoghue Asked:

Do I need to make a proper base for the Dorset Arbour or can I put it onto the ground and then plant around it?

We Replied:

Hi Sharon Thank you for your question. The Dorset is quite heavy and needs the support of a hard standing base. Soil or turf is not good enough as, when the earth gets wet in the winter, one corner will inevitably sink and buckle. 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

Diane Asked:

I want to have an arbour on a concrete yard. There is also a slight incline. Will this be ok to do - I think they look sturdy enough to not tip over? If not, what do you recommend?

We Replied:

Dear Diane Thank you for your question. We do recommend placing the arbour on a flat surface. However, if there is a slight incline, you could add more support in some way to the legs. Kind regards Lauren Bilboe

Alex Asked:

Will the item be ok to position on top of decking?

Dear Alex Thank you for your question. Provided the decking is sturdy and level this will be fine. 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

On the picture of the men sitting in the Dorset Arbour the sides look bowed, are they vertical?

Linda Rose Asked:

I have the Dorset Arbour but can't find a protective cover, do you stock them?

We Replied:

Dear Linda Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not offer a specific cover for this item. Your best option is to purchase a universal waterproof cover that will fit over the item. Alternatively you can purchase tarpaulin from a local hardware or DIY store and this should effectively do the same job as a cover. 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 Zach Nicholson

Could you clarify whether the 5' 2" width is the main body or the overhang of the roof past the side panels?

We Replied:

Dear Evie Thank you for your question. The 1.568m width given includes the overhang and shows the overall maximum width. 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 Lauren
