Quality Construction

This A1 Garden Chest is manufactured using high quality, slow-growing, sustainable Scandinavian Pine from well managed, sustainably certified forests. It is constructed using 16mm nominal (approx. 12mm finished) tongue and groove shiplap timber walls, along with tongue and groove roofs and floors, however this can be upgraded to a massive 22mm nominal thickness (approx. 18mm finished) if required.

Please note that NO chipboard or OSB is used in the construction of this Garden Chest.

These A1 Garden Chests are supplied pre-treated with a Light Brown, Eco-Friendly preservative basecoat. Strong, smoothed, rounded and planed framing has been used internally, which is doubled at the corners for extra strength. Mineral roofing felt is supplied to keep the roof watertight.


A1 Garden Chests are supplied pre-treated with a quality brown, non-toxic preservative base coat. This ensures that your garden building is ready to accept any preservative colour of your choice. We can also supply them made from long-lasting Tanalised® pressure-treated timber with a 15-year anti-rot warranty.

Lid, Tray & Locking System

No windows or doors are supplied with the A1 Garden Chest, however it does come with a hinged lift-up lid. A hasp and staple is fitted to the outside of the box ready to accept a padlock (not supplied). A removable sliding tray is supplied to allow storage of small items.
