Garden Furniture - The Secret Garden
Great garden furniture can take your garden to the next level by making it look both beautiful and functional. But it's important to first work out how you use your garden. Do you enjoy hosting parties or prefer to relax with just a few friends? Do you love the sun or do your prefer some shade while reading a book? When choosing your garden furniture, it is better to pick patio chairs that are durable, without sacrificing comfort and style. Size matters too because if your furniture is too small, you wouldn’t want to spend much time using it. If the patio furniture too large, your garden will feel smaller.
How’s the Weather?
The outdoor patio furniture that you choose should add to your overall available space and help you relax and entertain yourself. Buying garden tables and chairs is not the same as buying indoor furniture. You need to consider the weather before buying outdoor patio furniture. Is the weather hot or does it snow? Does it rain often? These are the questions you need to ask yourself. Hot and dry conditions can make some types of wood splinter and crack. Strong winds can send aluminum furniture flying.
Measure the Space You Have
Consider how much space you have. Is it a long and narrow balcony or a broad and wide deck? Use the area and shape of your balcony, patio or porch to determine the size of your garden furniture. Make sure to leave enough space around your furniture to be able to walk comfortably. For a small space, a bar table set may work better than a regular dining set, because bar tables are narrower, and stools take up less room than chairs.
Where Do You Want to Place the Furniture?
- Is your patio or outdoor space exposed to rain, sleet and snow or do you have any overhead covering? Will your furniture rest on soft ground and grass or on a hard surface such as a wooden deck ? Thinking about all this helps you choose materials that are a good match for your environment and surroundings.
- Try not to place soft woods such as pine on a grassy surface and in an exposed area. The moisture from the ground can cause the wood to rot. Moisture can also cause some metals to corrode. You can also consider patio umbrellas for shade if you get a lot of sun.
What kind of materials would you prefer when it comes to garden furniture? The three factors that can help you decide are weather, the amount of care required, and how the material looks. The weather plays a big role in determining if a material is a good fit. You obviously don't want a material that won't withstand the weather conditions. Some outdoor materials such as aluminum, teak or resin do not need much care. Wrought iron can last for a really long time and can withstand heat and moisture. Resin furniture is also resistant to damp conditions.
