Invest in sleek lines with an aluminium garden furniture set

19/07/2010 If you've got an old plastic table and chairs in your garden then it could be time to invest in a new aluminium garden furniture set.

Charlotte Rowe, garden designer and fully registered member of the Society of Garden Designers, said that people who live in urban areas are increasingly looking at more contemporary garden furniture to reflect the design of their houses.

Ms Rowe highlighted that she believes there is a "much better range of furniture available now in the UK".

Those looking for sleeker lines may want to consider investing in an aluminium garden furniture set.

The comments come after a survey by Ronseal found that 42 per cent of people spend less that £100 updating their garden each year, but spent more than £900 designing the inside of their house.
