Wooden Outdoor Furniture

As much as you love staying at home, it’s hard to resist a snack and drink in nature on a sunny afternoon.  In addition to good food and good company, good garden furniture is also important.  Although the markets are filled with steel, iron and plastic furniture, there is something special and unique about owning wooden patio furniture.

Wooden outdoor furniture comes in the form of dining tables and related appliances, lounge and relaxation furniture, flooring and decorative items to meet the needs of each user.  These range from simple picnic tables to elaborate constructions with grills and bar counters made of wood.  Available in classic and vintage designs to suit your historical tastes, or ultra modern and quirky shapes, handcrafted by the best designers in the business.  There is always a piece of wood waiting to beautify your outdoor space.

Timber trees such as cedar, eucalyptus, oak and teak are typically used in the manufacture of these works of art and cost slightly more than steel and plastic.  It is important that the wood used is weatherproof and durable.  The choice of wood depends on a number of factors such as the colour, the need to move the furniture, the cost, the durability of the wood and its life expectancy.

While trees like acacia and cedar, while light and therefore easier to transport, are not very resistant to inclement weather and insect infestation, sequoia and teak are slightly more expensive but durable.  Experts in the field suggest that darker wood is more durable and stronger in the middle of the trunk and is said to be the heart of the tree from which the furniture was made.  Unique furniture makes your garden look great.
