Overall I am satisfied with my purchase and it looks great in it's location but it hasn't been entirely problem free. The instructions tell you to fit the front panel before fitting the bottom of the box but it's impossible to do in this order. I had to remove the front panel in order to fit the bottom. I found the back rest to be very uncomfortable and I ended up by removing it and using the seat cushion as a back rest instead. I pressed an old camping mat into service as a seat cushion and the result is marvellous. Plus I have the surplus timber from the back rest to use for another project.

I cannot rate this anything above average. Wood poor quality, some pieces were split upon unpacking. No pre-drilled holes, or even a mark for where to drill them yourself. We had to add extra screws for stability. I suppose you get what you pay for, and this wasn't expensive, especially as it came with a free cushion....although the wrong colour was sent. Only time will tell if this remains rot free for ten years.

Good quality timber. Fuzzy instructions. Some design flaws (size of screws inadequate in some places, roof join poor and needed additional fixings). Some timber poorly finished (splits on facing edge of seat). So many packing staples to remove by hand! Looks good, after some on-the-hoof modifications by my carpenter friend.

Delivery was good and on time. Quality of product is not good. The timber is rough in places. Not very well put together and I'm doubtful of it's strength when we get the bad weather in the winter. Several slats in the trellis have not been fixed in place and slid around when trying to paint them. There were numerous staples all around the framework that were just randomly stuck in as if someone was playing with a staple gun. Generally, a cheap offering.

Bought online. Arrived as stated. On unpacking three panels had split at the corners. This was remedied with wood glue and some G clamps. This product has no pre holed panels so be prepared to use a drill. The instructions where fairly easy to comprehend and came with pictures of the steps to be taken. My only gripe was the pictures being in black and white. This made the steps less clear, especially for lining up panels exactly as shown and some of the sentencing made the instructions a bit vague. The back rest for the seated area was badly warped, so much so that the back rest was at least an inch and a half out of alignment. Overall a simple structure to build. Built with no assistance but I would definitely agree with instructions, to use two people due to having to line up panels for drilling and screwing in screws.

I researched quite a few arbours with storage boxes and found this one met my needs. I was even happier to find One Garden sold it at a significantly cheaper price than other sellers. At the moment it is being painted and prepared for installation in the Spring, but I have no doubt it will be find when in place. Only 4 stars as I haven't assembled it yet, but that doesn't mean there will be any problems. Assembly instructions are clear, all the bits have been delivered, so no problems anticipated.

The Hampshire Arbour will grace anyone's garden, it was delivered very quickly and was well packed. It came in three packs so at least it wasn't too much of a struggle to position before assembly. The wood is very solid with no flimsy panels and also pressure treated to save you painting if you like the natural look.The instructions are easy to read and I managed to do it by myself although it is recommended that at least two people build it. All Things Considered I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product to anyone in the market for a good quality arbour.

Good value and OK assembly. However there were no pre-drilled holes (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: That is correct, no pre-drilled holes exist.

Pre-drilled holes not made. Had to drill them myself. Instructions complicated. Built it without them for the most part. (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: In common with most external wooden products on the market, assembly instructions usually advise the customer to pre-drill certain holes during the installation process. The practical action of creating pilot holes once components are in-situ will help prevent any fixing causing expansion and reduce the likelihood of splitting.)

Was extremely disappointed to find some of the boxes containing the arbour were wet which had affected some of the wood. One section was completely cracked and a section had broken away - was going to demand a refund and arrange for it to be collected but the handyman who put it together assured me he could fix it and he did - brilliantly. The arbour itself is great to look at and comfortable to sit at. Looks lovely in the garden. The seat is difficult to lift up to get to the storage area but will try and make it easier by rubbing wax onto it.

We encourage every purchaser of this product to submit a review. Customers are invited (by post-delivery email) to a web page where their genuine review can be placed.
Q: Does the Hampshire Arbour have pre-drilled (pilot) holes?
A: No, it does not. The assembly instructions state "All screw holes to be pre-drilled" by the customer. This action will prevent the timber from splitting at your fixing points.
Q: What tools do I need to install the Hampshire Arbour?
A: A corded or cordless drill, Pozi-drive bit or screwdriver and a 3mm Drill bit; for you to drill all screw holes before construction.
