My first question is about the log flooring as seen above. I can get hold of some nice logs to replicate this effect in my front garden instead of boring paving but i need to know the best and cheapest way to protect the wood from the elements so it will last for many years please?
my second question is regarding our garden gate, we installed a new gate last year and painted it with one coat stain and varnish, it is currently an oak colour but because we have now installed a nice new white picket fence we want to paint the gate white. We have white undercoat and dulux gloss weathershield, will i actually need to undercoat or just use the gloss weathershield? Also will surface need to be sanded? The oak finish is actually still pretty perfect so can i just gloss straight on top?
Any help on these problems would be brilliant thanks Chaps!
