A quick glance out of your window, and you will see that snowdrops, crocus and daffodils are just beginning to show their colours and that can only mean one thing. Spring is well and truly on its way. Whilst things are still on a bit of a back burner in the UK with limited social contact, for the time being at least, there a glimmer of hope on the horizon.
As the warmer weather slowly arrives the Prime Ministers announcement that hopefully people will be able to meet up outside, and in gardens, either 6 people or two families in the not-too-distant future means that its certainly time to pay attention to your garden.
Getting the seating right
Finding the right furniture for your garden can often be something of a challenge, and there are certainly a number of factors that you will want to take into consideration before you make your purchase. Obviously, price may play an important part in your decision, but it can be a good idea to factor maintenance in as well. Is it really worth paying less for furniture that will need treating every year to keep it protected? This can be a time-consuming job as well so if you would rather just be enjoying your garden this may not be the type of garden furniture that you want.
Metal outdoor furniture by Lazy Susan is a fantastic option for any garden and perhaps more importantly is a very low maintenance choice, that will look stunning for years to come.
Why metal garden furniture?
Unlike plastic garden furniture, which is incredibly lightweight and really needs to be stored away properly or at least tied down for the winter, metal furniture is incredibly durable, sturdy and hardwearing. Plastic furniture can also become brittle and discoloured over time as a result of exposure to the elements. This can make it difficult to return it to its original colour and of course there is also the possibility that it will simply snap when someone sits on it potentially causing an injury.
Wooden furniture is another very popular choice for the garden. However over time it can also become damaged by the weather and will certainly benefit at the beginning of each season from a light sanding followed by a coat, or two, of wood treatment that will help to protect it. This can be time consuming and as you will need to ensure your furniture is fully dry before treating it. This means that unless you get a day of really good weather you may need access to an indoor space such as a garage where you can carry out your garden furniture maintenance.
Fuss free furniture
Metal furniture does not need sanding and treating every year, it does not become discoloured or brittle as a result of being outside. It will, just like anything else let out in the garden, get a little dirty. This is however a very easy problem to solve. A quick wash over with some warm soapy water and your metal garden furniture will be as good as new and ready to use.
If you are looking for something that you will be able to use as soon as the better weather materialises, and with very little maintenance work, then metal garden furniture is certainly the way forward.
Whether you are looking for a simple garden bench, a small table and chair set or have plenty of space and would love to add a large family sized table and plenty of chairs to your garden you’re sure to be able to find fuss free furniture that makes sitting in your garden a joy.
