The Ronseal Brand!
Ronseal is a well-known brand that enjoys great reviews with a huge variety of paints. They provide interior, exterior wood, and metal paints, but their garden paint has many competitors that are also claiming to offer garden paint that lasts the test of time!
For example, Cuprinol Garden Shades paint is their number 1 rival that also claims to have created a long-lasting, deep colour paint for the DIY decorator!
With a tin of Ronseal garden paint costing around £15 for 2.5-litre tin, which is a competitive price compared to other leading brands of garden pints! Another positive point to make is that their outside/garden paints offer a huge variety of colours!

Review Digest – Ronseal garden paints are currently a leading provider of wood paints. With many colours to choose from Ronseal claims to cover your sheds, fences, and benches in one application. Although this is rarely experienced because of old paint or wood preservation oils!
We would advise you to expect to apply 2 coats for a better cover that will last longer! Always make sure you remove any trace of old paint or varnish because your DIY project will have a better finish.
Reviewers Tips & Tricks
Always sand your timber even if it’s brand new because any splinter or rough surface will show through on the finished coat. Just use a sander or hand sand your timber with 120 grade. Using fine sandpaper will smooth out any abnormal knots and twists if your timber for any reason has a high number of knots then make sure you use a knot care treatment to stop them from showing through.
Spraying Ronseals garden paint can be a tricky job because it’s just so thick! Many reviews have complained about the thickness of this paint brand and deemed it not compatible with paint sprayers. So, using a brush is key to getting the job done and a better finish on your timber!
Ronseal Garden Paint Details
The Ronseal Garden Paint is “ONLY” for timber/wood. Do not use this paint for masonry, brick or stone because it might flake away.
Another point to make is that this particular type of paint will dry shiny/slippery, so do not use on floors such as concrete or decking boards! This can be very hazardous to guests and yourself especially when wet!

Editors Notes – Ronseal Garden Paint!
“Ronseal Garden Paint is suitable for both trades and DIY projects. It produces a great finish that enhances the grain of any type of timber except CLS. I use it on a weekly basis because Iknow it stands the test of time while giving a job that wow factor for a customer!”
With so many options to choose from the Ronseal Garden Paint is a serious contender for the top spot. Although it does not offer bright/unique colours compared to Cuprinol Garden Shades.
Knowing this we would still advise our readers to consider Ronseal because the price is great for the quality of paint on offer!
