Painting wood in your garden can take many shapes and forms; from fences, to wooden pallets, to sheds. Adding a splash of colour can bring a great brightness to your garden and it can also add a new relaxing area to even the smallest space.
Before you begin painting, ensure you prepare your surface. Remove excess dirt and soiling, large areas of algae, lichen, fungi or moss with a scraper or stiff brush, then sand and clean the surface. Bare or untreated wood should be pre-treated with an appropriate wood preserver to prevent rot and decay, such as Cuprinol Wood Preserver Clear. Wood previously stained, painted or varnished should be stripped back to bare wood. Spark it to life by choosing Cuprinol Garden shades, this gives a beautiful, long lasting colour and protection to all garden wood.
