Benches & Pergolas FAQ

Do you make bespoke pergolas?

Yes, it is an ever-increasing part of our work. We can work from garden designer drawings or design them ourselves and install them for you. We make our pergolas almost exclusively in oak.

What wood do you use?

We almost exclusively use oak (see above question) but can use larch as an alternative.

How long do they take to make?

Usually 4-6 weeks from the date of commission.

What maintenance do they require?

Common-sense looking after. What you must avoid is letting them get dirty or built up with algae, instead keep them clean with a regular scrub with sugar soap or with our recommend cleaning products.

Over time as the natural tannins leave the wood in the weathering process, the wood will get ‘hungry’. We recommend applying a feeding oil.

Further information on maintenance can be found on our aftercare page.

What makes yours the best?

The material that we use is crucial. The oak that we use for our pergolas is a prime grade, joinery quality oak. This means that we can reject sapwood and only use heartwood, selecting wood with the least number of knots possible. We make use of modern fixing to make a really efficient assembly see video

How do I order?

You can order directly through our website, selecting the options you prefer and handling the whole situation online. Once you have made an online order, we will always contact you to discuss your selection so it’s never too late to tweak or amend.

Alternatively, if you prefer you can order over the phone or email. We’re more than happy to work in whatever way you would prefer.

Can you assemble pergolas for me?

Yes we do offer an installation service,we use our own joiners who will deliver and assemble. They’ll assemble the pergola in position for you before inviting you to sit on them for testing and adapt it to your personal height.

Alternatively we can send a DIY install guide with delivery.
