Yorkshire Log Stores Report Abuse
- Yorkshire Log Stores- They Design and develop garden furniture and ensure it is manufactured from FSC certified timber only. The furniture is designed from, oak, cedar and siberian larch, all three of which can survive in the natural environment UN-TREATED for 40 years+, meaning the use of treatment and harmful chemical are not required. Furthermore, all of our products are designed in house, to such a criteria that mechanical fixings ( screws, nails, bolts etc) are kept to an absolute minimum, and in a lot of cases aren't used at all. This is done by incorporating joinery techniques such as mortise and tenon joints. The reduction in the uses of mechanical fixings, reduces carbon emissions indirectly.
