Garden Furniture: Second-Hand Options to Consider

Preloved offers a variety of second-hand garden furniture that can help you create a stylish and comfortable outdoor space. Look for vintage wrought iron tables and chairs, wooden benches, and quirky mosaic-topped bistro sets.

Second-hand garden furniture can often have a unique character that adds charm to your space.

The Value of a Second-Hand Shed

A shed is a valuable addition to any garden, providing a storage solution for gardening tools and a space for relaxation. We have a range of second-hand sheds that are much cheaper than buying new.

When purchasing a second-hand shed, ensure that you check for any leaks or significant damage to the roof and walls. Re-felting the roof or replacing a few panels is a small job that can easily be completed to give a second-hand shed a new lease of life. You could even give the exterior a coat of paint to really refresh your old (new) shed!

Second-Hand Gardening Tools: Cost-Effective and Environmentally Friendly

Gardening tools are essential for keeping your garden in top shape, but they can be expensive to buy new. Preloved offers a range of second-hand gardening tools that can be a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution.  Upcycling old gardening tools is also a great way to give them a new lease of life. Sanding down old wooden handles and applying a fresh coat of paint can make them look like new.

Upcycling: Giving New Life to Old Items

Preloved also offers a variety of old garden items that can be upcycled to give them a unique character. From old plant pots to broken garden ornaments, there are plenty of upcycling options to explore. One popular upcycling idea is to turn old tyres into planters. Simply stack the tyres on top of each other and fill them with soil and plants. You can paint the tyres in bright colours to make them stand out. Another great upcycling idea is to turn old wooden pallets into garden furniture. You can use the pallets to create a simple bench or coffee table. Sand down the wood and apply a fresh coat of paint or varnish to give it a new lease of life.
