Ronseal Garden Paint will colour and protect all types of garden wood including sheds, fences, pergolas, trellis and more.

Preparing New Softwood

New softwoods including garden furniture can be painted straight away as long as they do not have a previous wax, oil or silicon finish.

Preparing New Hardwood

  1. Allow to weather for 6 weeks
  2. Lightly sand to remove surface fibres and splinters
  3. Wipe the wood over with methylated spirit
  4. Ensure that the wood to dry before painting garden furniture

Old Garden Wood

Old coating type finishes such as paints, varnishes and varnish type stains must be fully removed, back to bare wood, before painting.

  1. Remove all traces of mould, algae and fungi with a stiff brush or scraper
  2. Treat areas affected by mould, algae and fungi with a mould, mildew and fungi remover
  3. Treat with a suitable wax, oil and silicon free exterior wood preservative, if required
  4. Where possible, preserve all sides including end grain prior to application of Ronseal Garden colours
  5. Ensure that the wood is fully dry before applying Ronseal paint

Unweathered Terracotta

Terracotta pots and other surfaces may need a good sanding/wire brushing as they are often treated or glazed to protect them from rain and frost damage. These treatments will reduce adhesion of the paint to the surface. Weathered terracotta needs to be water bead tested. If the water beads on the surface, sanding will be required to remove the surface coating before painting. If the water soaks in to the Terracotta, then the paint can be applied directly.

Metal Surfaces

Metal needs a suitable primer before painting with Ronseal Garden Paint. Use grey primer under darker colours, and white primer under lighter colours.

Brick or Stone

Simply remove any dust or loose material with a stiff brush and give it a good wipe before painting.

Always do a test area before starting any project to check suitability and compatibility. Do not apply Ronseal Garden Paint in wet conditions or if rain, frost or snow is likely before the product is dry. This product is not suitable for wooden surfaces that have been treated with products containing oil, wax or silicon, unless they have been allowed to weather and de-greased with methylated spirit. This product is not suitable for use on plastics, cast iron or areas subjected to foot traffic such as decking boards. It should also not be used on walls prone to damp.

  1. Stir Ronseal Garden Paint thoroughly before and periodically during application
  2. Apply a thin, even film of Ronseal paint to substrate with a suitable brush, roller or applicator
  3. Work the paint in to the surface of the wood grain, if other substrate apply evenly
  4. Allow the first coat to dry for 4 hours
  5. Apply a second and third coat as above

If painting wooden garden furniture, allow 2 to 3 days before using or adding cushions and other soft furnishings.
