The natural beauty of wood and caring for it

At AFK we source our slow grown FSC® certified Scandinavian Redwood timber from Sweden, a region famed for its timber production. This cold northern region ensures the trees grow slowly giving strength and density to the wood and in turn making the wood less prone to splitting with knots remaining tighter.

We take a great deal of effort to ensure our wooden arbours and planters get to you in great condition.

Wood is a natural material and is affected by conditions it is exposed to. Sometimes during the hot summer months splits or cracks may appear. These are not defects but just the wood altering to match the moisture and temperature of its surroundings and as wetter times come will naturally fill in.

Knots are natural growth imperfections that gives wood its unique character.

Knot discolouration is a yellowish stain that may appear on the surface of the paint. This is the result of sap from the wood bleeding, and their natural resins staining the top coat of paint.

This can happen through hot periods. To overcome this, we use a good quality wood primer with a high content of knotting inhibitor to slow this natural process down. If it does occur sand the effected area back to bare wood and apply a good quality stain blocking primer before repainting.
