The garden is a place where you would like to spend some time at peace with nature. Your garden is a place that enhances the look of your house. By selecting the right pieces of garden furniture, you could make your garden look elegant and stylish. There is a variety of garden furniture available on the market to cater to your varying needs. While selecting it, you need to consider three factors-looks, durability, and cost. The most commonly used garden furniture includes the coffee tables, chairs, swings, loungers, and so on. There are basically three types of outdoor furniture, and they are metal, wooden, and plastic garden furniture.
A trip to the local garden centre for garden furniture can be a confusing experience - what do I need ? what the best style for me ? What will suit my way of living ? and then Do I want, wood, metal, wicker or what ? Here we try to cover the basics of what’s available and some pointers to help you choose. Metal can really set the tone Metal Garden furniture will if anything look great with just about any style of garden.. Another classical piece of metal garden furniture is the single ornate iron bench, which can really set off a Victorian style garden. The options range from modern lightweight aluminium to the more traditional iron and it should be possible to obtain the perfect piece of metal garden furniture for your garden.
The most popular type is metal garden furniture. Cast iron is used to make the furniture. It gives an old-era look and thereby enhances the look of your house. They are a bit expensive, but considering their benefits, it’s worth it to invest. Outdoor furniture is exposed to direct sun and rain. There are greater chances of them being damaged. But in the case of metal furniture, it will last longer as it has greater durability. It does not require any kind of maintenance and also gives a stylish look to your house. To give a Victorian-era look, this would be the best option. The latest varieties of them are available in various colors and designs to match with your garden.
Teak garden furniture that is assembled using epoxy based glues tend to have the best performance and durability of all the types of joints as the epoxy resin used will not be affected by rain or frost. If your teak garden furniture becomes dirty it is easy to clean with warm soapy water and a scrubbing brush which will enable you to restore the beautiful silver grey weathered look. If required a pressure hose can be used at 60-80 bar [900-1200psi] at a distance of no less than 30cm. Once your teak garden furniture has weathered the colour will be enhanced by an annual scrub. A small amount of bleach added to the water will suppress any algae growth. Any stains and grease spots can be immediately removed by washing down using a light detergent then rinsing off with clean water as soon as they occur. However, this is not essential as nature will take its course over time. In dry weather small cracks will appear in the end of the grain timbers. This is natural and no action needs to be taken as when the moisture in the atmosphere increases the timber will return to its original condition. It is not necessary to use teak oil or varnish as these will not extend the life of your garden furniture and are purely cosmetic. However, if you wish to preserve the as new appearance of your teak garden furniture the application of teak oil when the furniture is new will give a more lustre finish than leaving untouched. Please ensure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions as usually this is a three stage process. Make sure the timber is completely dry when you apply the teak oil, otherwise the furniture will blacken.
