Hard wood garden furniture is a 'comfortable option'

21/07/2010 A hard wood garden furniture set is a comfortable seating option for your outdoor space, one expert has suggested.

Garden designer Kate Gould told the Independent newspaper that people are now beginning to view their gardens as an extension of their house and are using them as both cooking and dining areas.

She said that the choice of materials you choose for your seating area should depend on what you plan to use it for.

The expert said that more materials are now being used in garden design, but Ms Gould warned that "stone is lovely – if you don't want to actually sit on it".

She added: "We use a lot of wood for seats; sustainable hardwood like cedar, as it's comfortable, especially when you put a cushion on it."

Charlotte Rowe, garden designer and fully registered member of the Society of Garden Designers, also highlighted recently that people who live in cities are increasingly looking for more contemporary designs.
