Gardens 'enhanced' by hardwood patio furniture sets

02/11/2010 Keen gardeners searching for something to complement all of their hard work in maintaining the lawn and shrubbery of an outdoor space should look no further than a hardwood garden furniture set, according to one website.

The Greener Home blog suggested that high-quality patio furniture can "enhance" the whole appearance of a garden, as well as offering a practical solution to al fresco dining – or simply providing a pleasant place to sit.

"Whether your garden is low maintenance and practical, or a lush pasture surrounded by beds that are a riot of colour, some well chosen garden furniture can be the crowning glory," the writer asserted.

Shoppers were urged, however, to consider their storage options before purchasing a new hardwood garden furniture set.
