Garden Furniture Sales

By admin On April 8, 2009 No Comments

Here in the UK the weather is starting to pick up and there are garden furniture sales popping up everywhere. Last year the weather was very poor and the peak season for garden sales was May however the prediction is that the UK is set to have its best weather for a number of years.

Many garden furniture and bbq suppliers have excess stock from last year and there are some great sales around expecially if you research on the internet first. Having said that, because the pound is weaker against the dollar it will cost these companies a lot more to replenish stock when it is gone, so the sales might not last all season. Grab a bargain whilst you can!!

Planning An Outdoor Room

By admin On March 23, 2009 No Comments

First consider what you want to include on your patio or terrace. Plan the size of the paved area to accommodate sofas, loungers and a dining table and chairs with space to move around them. It is a good idea to select the style and size of furniture before your patio is built.

Site an outdoor dining and kitchen area within easy reach of the house so you can bring food and drinks into the garden without fuss.

For north facing gardens, where placing a patio at the sunny end of the plot may be best, think about installing an electricity supply for a fridge and plumbing for a sink.

Barbecues that use mains gas are also a great idea, especially in small gardens since they obviate the need to store gas cylinders.

Sofas and chairs made from weatherproof wicker style fibre have helped transform gardens into outdoor sitting rooms. The furniture can be left outside all year round and thanks to lightweight aluminium frames is surprisingly light and easy to move. Although the cushions are showerproof it is best to store them under cover when they are not in use and over the winter.

Currently only a small garden website but it will no doubt get a lot bigger over the coming months with new categories planned like, garden lighting, garden products, bbqs, plants and turf.

Natural Wood Protection

By admin On October 13, 2008 No Comments

Several products are available to help maintain and preserve garden furniture with a natural wood finish. These range from stains (such as Sadolin) which protect the wood and at the same time may deepen or enrich the natural colour to proprietary oils that are applied regularly to keep the wood lubricated and nourished. As with decking, hardwoods are generally more hard wearing and durable than softwoods.

How to Choose Outdoor Patio Furniture

By admin On August 11, 2008 No Comments

There are many things to consider. Number one is the climate. Of course, if you live in an area where the sun is always out and it rarely rains, then you have little to worry about outdoor furniture that can withstand moisture and water. However, sun can also cause some materials to dry up, especially wood which has the tendency to shrink when it dries up.

On the other hand, if you live in an area where you experience all sorts of weather disturbance from rain to snow to sleet and hail, then you need furniture that can withstand these conditions as well.

If you are looking for quality and affordability in your outdoor patio furniture sets, a good choice is furniture made from cast aluminum. Aluminum patio furniture is economical, solid but lightweight, and rustproof. For those with a tight budget, plastic outdoor patio furniture sets are the easiest on the pocket. They can endure most types of weather but, naturally, they are less durable than wrought iron pieces. Plastic furniture comes in so many colors and styles that while they may not be as not be as good-looking as other pricey furniture sets, they suit most ordinary and simple patio and garden settings.

A common wood used for hardwood patio furniture is Mahogany. This wood has tight grains and is exceptionally hard and durable. Mahogany furniture will not crack, splinter or lose its form. Mahogany can last more than twenty years outdoors, with its natural deep red color turning into soft gray.

Other woods used for hardwood patio furniture are fine-grained honey-colored Alder wood, red Brazilian Cherry, Shorea and Teak wood, known for its extreme weather durability.
