Unfortunately, the summer is now coming to an end and we are looking towards the colder and wetter months of autumn and winter.
All too often, the garden gets neglected over this time as we’re not particularly inspired to be getting out there!
This year, don’t let your summer of hard work go to waste and ensure that any new wood projects in the garden are suitably protected from damage.
If you’ve had projects completed using brand new wood, you may be aware that the mill glaze present can prevent protective finishes from fully saturating.
You have probably been advised to leave your new wood to weather until next summer. This is a great plan BUT your wood does still need a little help to control the sudden changes in moisture and to prevent it from warping and splitting.
What is Seasonite?
Seasonite keeps your new wood wrapped up safe over its first winter. It does this by controlling the transfer of moisture and preventing splitting and warping it can be prone to if left unprotected. It’s really easy to apply with just a single coat and is colourless so won’t spoil the lovely new-wood finish!
Then, when the summer comes around again, you can use your choice of finish, safe in the knowledge that there’s now no mill glaze. And best of all that your wood has not been damaged!
For more information about the benefits of using Seasonite, check out our previous post; How to protect your new wood over winter.
