We don't have a shop but you can collect Chimeneas from our warehouse
in Abercynon, South Wales. If you collect you will make a further saving. We also
exhibit at a number of shows throughout the country so please check Shows to see if we'll be near you.

How long does
We aim to send your goods
out within 2-5 days but this maybe extended when we are exhibiting at garden shows. We use Royal Mail, Hermes or Parcelforce depending on the size of the parcel. Following
a number of breakages, Chimeneas are now delivered by a pallet delivery
service. The pallet is delivered 'kerbside'. If you think this will
be a problem for you please speak to us before placing the order.
Do I need
to sign for my goods?
For most items, Yes. When we use a courier
or for the pallet delivery service someone will
need to sign to receive the goods. If you are unable to check the package
in front of the courier, please sign the documentation and write 'UNSEEN'
on it as this allows us to make a claim in the event of breakages.

your chimenea arrives damaged, please e-mail or mail us photos of the
problem along with a photo of the packaging if this was also damaged.
We will then contact you to resolve the issue.
I would like
my chimenea delivered on a Saturday is this available?
Unfortunately the pallet
service does not offer this delivery.
your chimeneas different to other chimeneas ?
Where shall we start? Our chimeneas are a country of origin product, Mexican chimeneas from
Mexico where they originated. They are not Chinese copies which are
favoured by most DIY chains because they're cheap. Chinese clays are
not as good as Mexican clays and therefore they are more likely to crack
at the first sign of frost. Our Mexichims are made for us. They are fired to very high temperatures and are pre-sealed. Our range of Gardeco Chimeneas are slightly smaller than our Mexichims and are also made in Mexico.
Isn't a cast
iron/metal chimenea better than clay?
No! Cast iron will rust and form holes. The rust will discolour your patio or decking. They don't radiate heat like a clay chimeneas. Also metal chimeneas are more likely to cause nasty burns. We suppose it's a matter of taste
but we think the clay chimeneas look so much nicer in the garden too.
clay chimenea take a lot of looking after?
No. Use a sealant on our Mexichims once or twice a year.
make a couple of small fires in the chimenea to start with on a bed of sand and
then away you go.
best fuel to use?
We love to be carbon neutral so we'd always recommend using wood on both our Mexichim.
You should use fully seasoned wood to avoid smoke. Certainly
Wood produces the best seasonsed logs we have come across. They have
an excellent heat output and hardly any smoke, have a look at their
website for more information.
