From soft pastels to more vibrant tones, Sadolin boasts a massive selection of fresh and attractive shades to suit all tastes, while ensuring premium protection for your garden wood.
Top of the pots
Accessorising your garden with decorated pots and planters is a quick but effective way to add some colour to the outside of your home.
Make over tired-looking wooden garden planters with a fresh new coat of stain and some colourful blooms. This pretty planter has been treated with Sadolin Four Seasons Garden Furniture Colour & Protector in ‘Botanic’, which complements the pale pink Cyclamen beautifully. Alternatively go for a really vivid shade, such as Sadolin Superdec in ‘Monaco’, and contrast with some classic spring flowers such as daffodils or tulips.
Another quick fix solution, which will also add a touch of colour to the lives of your feathered friends, is to spruce up a bird box. Give yours a lift and protect it from the elements with a coat of Sadolin Superdec. This bird box has been treated with Sadolin Superdec in ‘Cloverleaf’.
Practical and pretty
Even the most practical of garden items – be it potting tables, trugs or compost bins – will benefit from a little love and attention, with a touch of colour making them features to be proud of.
These trugs have been given a country cottage makeover with some leftover Sadolin Superdec in ‘Ponderosa Pine’ (back) or ‘Pea Green’ (front), while this compost bin looks picture perfect thanks to a splash of Sadolin Superdec in ‘Clover Leaf’.
