Firstly LS will NOT stop it rotting away. I'm not familiar with what is available in your location. If you run a search here on the forums for deadwood or wood preserver etc etc, you will find quite a bit of information already.

Jim L mentions a product that may be available to you.

In the US, MinWax makes a wood hardener. It will require occasional reapplication.

On Elm wood, I treat with the equivalent of Miniwax at least once a year.
