Hard wood garden furniture sets 'can still be enjoyed in winter'

15/10/2010 Brits don't have to pack away their hard wood garden furniture sets and consign themselves to the indoors simply because winter is on its way.

Kate Hodge, product manager for woodcare at Ronseal, explained that precautions should be taken to ensure that hard wood garden furniture sets are kept in top condition in harsher weather conditions, but they can still be enjoyed in the winter months.

"There's nothing nicer than wrapping up warm and getting out into the garden during the winter to enjoy the fresh air and watch the birds and wildlife," she added.

Ms Hodge recommended investing in decking to place hard wood garden furniture on, as grass can get very wet and muddy in the later months of the year.

If the cold weather really begins to bite, she suggested investing in a "chiminea or patio heater".

Recently, Ronseal recommended people coat their hard wood garden furniture set with a protective stain during the winter months to prevent "cracking, splitting and discolouring". ADNFCR-3488-ID-800119765-ADNFCR
