Attractive, solidly built arbour
I am very pleased with this arbour which has transformed a dull area of my garden. It is very solidly constructed and the seats are a generous size and comfortable. We were building it on an uneven area of grass and earth and it took a long time to put it up (5 hours) as we had to level the surface and site tiles under each upright. It would be much easier to construct on a patio. Two small niggles - one of the uprights was prescrewed onto a trellis the wrong way round (we had to inscrew it and correct this) and one of the seat slats had a bad knot that made it nearly break when it was stood on (we got round this by turning it round and putting the cracked end over a post). Other than this I am delighted with the product and the service provided.

Great Service, Thank-You
Andy, I once contacted a company to complain about a service and they commented that nobody ever contacts them to say "well done". I remembered that and have always tried to contact companies when I have had good service. Although the instructions were not attached to the arbour I ordered, when I contacted you the response was immediate and the instructions easy to read and understand. The delivery of the arbour was quick and when I requested a morning delivery you exceeded my hopes with a delivery at 08.30am. If I ever need anything else in this line I will certainly look at your web site first, unlike Argos who although a few pounds cheaper overall seemed unable to supply the item (I had been trying for 4 weeks). Thank you to the team at Gardensite.
What sort of base is needed for the Sorrento Arbour, the pictures suggest that the posts do not go into the ground. what would be the best way to anchor the structure?We Replied:
Dear Sir / Madam Thank you for your question. The arbour does not need to be fixed to the ground as it is a free standing unit. You can however secure it by using L brackets or spikes which slot onto the bottom of the posts. 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 DoddThursday 13th, March, 2014
On the very detailed drawing the smaller of the two right angle sides is shown as 1905mm. This looks as though it is to the ends of the roof slats. Could you tell me the measurements of the structure that actually stands on the ground ie post to post?We Replied:
Dear Stuart Thank you for your question. The arbour measures 1988mm from end of post to end of post. Click on the image above the 15 year guarantee and you will see this.

Would this structure be better sited on paving slabs or is it OK to put it on bare earth/grass? Will the preservation treatment protect the wooden supports even if they get damp?We Replied:
Dear Clare Thank you for your question. The product can be put on grass/earth. However, it may sink into the ground over time depending on how wet your ground is. The preservative will protect the wood but anything that prevents the wood getting wet will help to sustain the life of the product. The product posts could be sited onto paving slabs as an alternative. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.
