Review By:

This is a delightful arbour that fits very neatly into a corner, and is sweet and charming to look at and enjoy the usage of. One great aspect is that it easily seats 3 people, which means you can entertain your friends, or just share a coffee out in the sunshine. It’s painted in Willow, which means it will complement a lawn or shrubbery.

With intricate detailing and a robust frame, it is a great option if you’re looking for an arbour that will last for a long time, as well as provide a great spot to entertain your friends on those lovely long summer evenings.

Blooma Chiltern Painted Willow Corner Arbour – Our first impressions

Blooma Chiltern Painted Willow Corner ArbourThis building really only serves one purpose, and that is to provide you with a space you can relax with friends and have a nice time. It’s big enough to seat 3 people, and that is a plus point as far as we are concerned. Comfortable, you can add sizeable cushions if you need to.

But the real value here comes with the longevity that has been built in. Putting the timber aside for a moment, you have a unit here that has been pressure treated. This gives you immense value, because it means that the unit does not require treatment every year. Normally you would be expected to treat the wood annually so it has protection against damp and rot. Not so with pressure treatment, and that makes a big difference.

The arbour has been made from softwood too, so it has a pleasing overall appearance. Smooth and clean, the softwood is also sustainable, so you know you’re buying an ethical product.

And then there’s the willow colour. This goes well with any garden, and should make a great complement to a garden that has plenty of shrubbery.

Blooma Chiltern Painted Willow Corner Arbour: Questions you may have

Can I install this myself? Yes, and quite easily. As with most garden constructions of a certain size, we recommend that you install it with another person to help you. This ensures safety is a priority and also helps with the organisation of the build. Keep it safe and use good tools and you should have the arbour up in an hour or so.

Is there a guarantee? The product comes with a 10 year manufacturer guarantee. This protects against rot and damp and ensures that you have full cover. Bear in mind that the guarantee risks being voided if you don’t follow the care instructions that are clearly outlined in the pack.

What is pressure treatment?

It is essentially the process of forcing toughening chemicals into the timber. It takes place at the factory, and ensures your timber does not require any further treatment.

    Really nice. It’s only small if you want an arbour for more than 3 adults.
