If you have a rock garden with a corner for cactus, then you may consider getting some metallic outdoor garden furniture that would go very well with the surroundings. On the other hand, if you want to place it beside the lily pool, then perhaps a garden bench might be a better option.
Gardens are a symbol of enchantments, tranquility and peace. They have the potency to transform your mood and life. Spending some time in your garden can provide you with complete rejuvenation. For adorning this corner of the house, it is important to choose suitable garden furniture. It would enhance beauty of the garden and add to your comfort. There is a plethora of garden furniture for decorating your garden; you can pick cane, wood, plastic or teak furniture in different sizes, shapes and colors.
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.
