Choosing Garden Furniture

Author : Cara Brownethorpe


Possessing outdoor furniture means you can enjoy the garden better. There is nothing nicer than setting up a table and chairs in the garden and enjoying a few drinks or perhaps a meal outside. You can have your seating in the sun, or in the shade, or have an umbrella to shade you if you wish.

There are several kinds of garden furniture which include benches, tables, dining chairs, recliners, sun loungers, side tables and deckchairs. You might like to get a set of furniture that matches, or buy things one by one.

Furniture is made from various materials. Hardwood is perhaps the favourite and widely available. Teak is a regularly used wood however it's quite expensive. The exterior wood does need to be treated with teak oil but it is resistant to fungus, fire and water. Wood will have to be looked after to prevent weathering.

Plastic is the affordable choice however it does not mean it is horrible. It isn't the most environmentally friendly choice but the furniture is light-weight and long-lasting and can be left out of doors throughout the year.

Metal garden furniture will likely be made from wrought iron or aluminium. Aluminium is coated making it weather resistant but the coating should be looked after since the underlying metal is at risk of corrosion. Wrought iron is weighty but long-lasting and it looks good.

Resin weave garden furniture is good since it is light-weight when compared with wood and metal. It offers an appealing structure with the weave and is increasingly popular in Britain. It's reminiscent of tropical getaways. The resin weave is often created from recycled plastic so is good for the ecologically minded. Also, the furniture has a great life expectancy since it stands up to usage outdoors very well.

Hammocks are a popular garden item. Again, they are suggestive of holidays. They differ in price from simple cheap fabric, to more expensive cloth with free-standing wood or metal frames.

A great piece of garden furniture is the outdoor beanbag. Bright colours are available and the seats are light and comfy.

Hanging chairs are also an exciting furniture solution. Dangling from a tree or a sturdy frame, the chairs or pods are really nice to take a seat in. The motion is enjoyable as the chair sways in the breeze.

With garden furniture you'll be able to really have fun. Just be sure you buy something suitable for your garden and your price range but do not forget to think ahead a bit to what your long term needs will be. If you are renting a house with a massive garden, it might not make sense to go mad and buy an entire wooden furniture set if your next house has a tiny little garden.

Whatever you do though, it is important to utilize the garden whenever you can because the good weather conditions are pretty much here and gardens should be cherished and enjoyed.
