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.

Great product, easy to use, nice colour by Michael Lynch

Used to paint garden fence, access door and spindles and handrail on decking to provide contrast to oiled decking. Lovely finish, quick drying.

Good Stuff by David Sobey

It's fairly thick for a water-based paint. Coverage is good and so is opacity. Dries hard and quick, so if you want to add a second coat, do it within an hour or two - or give a light sand to key.

A good paint, covers well on a variety of surfaces by Michael Swallow

I used on rendering of house to go over white. One coat just about did it, but two would probably be ideal, although everyone has commented on how nice it looks, so I'll leave it be! It does seem to have a slight sheen to the finish, almost like a vinyl paint, rather than the chalky matt that I'm familiar with from more traditional masonry paints, so I would probably look for another product to do my rendering next time, but I would use this again for other jobs. The black (black bird) paint I also bought tidied up lead flashing very nicely, and the slight sheen looked good!

A good paint, covers well on a variety of surfaces by Michael Swallow

Rather than trying to remove 80 years worth of old paint and go back to the original lead, which I quickly realised was a futile task! This paint went on well and tidied it up very nicely, and the slight sheen looked good.

Excellent garden paint which covers well, with an opaque finish (i.e. the wood grain does not show through).

Performs as expected, socks not blown off by Mrs Marie Dowdall

This was exactly the colour we wanted, the paint was fairly thick but it had a slight transparency when painting it on that suggested it was a little under-pigmented. It needed three coats to get a good consistent coverage on prepared bare wood. Cleanup was very quick and simple, just warm water and soap. Once dry, the finish has excellent water repelling qualities.

A note from us...

Hello Mrs Pace,

Many thanks for the feedback on this product. Often with paints, particularly white once, the pigment can sink to the bottom of the tin and will need a really good stir with a paint stirrer or a wooden spoon to ensure the pigment is evenly distributed throughout the paint. This will give a better colour finish.

With this particular paint 3 coats are recommended to give the colour finish required, but if applying to a darker base you may need a fourth coat or a primer first. For further advice please do feel free to call and speak to one of our helpful advisers on 01303 213 838.

Kind Regards Samantha.
