Let’s face it, wood is beautiful. Well made wood furniture will add a classic feel to your house and garden, as well as making it more welcoming and friendly. A number of studies have shown that wood has psychological benefits because it encourages lower blood pressure and has a calming effect!
And because it’s a natural material, every piece of wood is unique, which adds to its charm. It’s durable, strong, easy to clean, weather resistant, flexible and eco-friendly if taken from a sustainable source. So, having decided on wood, how do you know which garden furniture is right for you?
How do you use your garden?
Is your garden a private space for just you and a select few to relax in, or do you like being surrounded by people and have a constant stream of visitors? Maybe you’ve got a large family and the kids like having their friends over. You’ll need something that will accommodate everyone, so the size and flexibility of the George table and benches would suit them perfectly - there should always be room to squeeze in another littl’un!
If you prefer a quieter, more relaxed outdoor life, our popular EcoFurn chairs are the perfect solution. Think of them as a kind of wooden deckchair which you don’t have to struggle with folding up to put away every time it rains. They even have their own matching side tables to rest your tea (or G&T) on, to keep it in easy reach. The table also doubles as a foot rest for when you want to settle down for a nap and make the most of the heat of the sun.
Take care of your furniture
Make sure you look after your wooden garden furniture by keeping it clean and well maintained, and store inside during the winter months. If you take care of it properly, it will last for years, making it a very shrewd investment as well as an incredibly attractive addition to your garden.
