So you've got a beautiful garden, and you have visions of fancy evening suares', casual relaxing conversation, or peaceful meditative moments among the beautiful outdoors, but what about the garden furniture?
There are a host of varieties of garden furniture available depending on the size of the garden, the intended use, and the look and feel that you are trying to capture.
First things first.
Consider the main use you envision for the area you are looking to furnish. A smaller garden can accommodate a smaller amount of people, so huge amounts of furniture are not necessary, In this case, you can spend the money saved on quantity and instead put it toward quality. Opting for wrought iron garden furniture or some of the higher end items will pay off in the long run.
With a smaller space, there is a beauty in simplicity. A simple set of a love seat, a few chairs and a centralized, knee-level table will create the perfect atmosphere for causal conversation or a relaxing break with a good book.
If you have a larger space, consider again the use, and then purchase the necessary amount of tables and chairs to accommodate what you see in the future.
There are several different styles and materials used. Some of the more popular materials for garden furniture are:
Any garden furniture must be able to weather the outdoor atmosphere. Consider your climate and the amount of time and energy you want to expend moving it in and out depending on the weather or the season. Make sure you care for the furniture according to the designers recommendations. Proper care and maintenance can ensure your garden furniture lasts for years rather than a few seasons of use.
