Hardwood garden furniture 'an enduring choice'

27/10/2010 Anyone looking to buy a hardwood garden furniture set online may already have made an excellent decision, if one expert's advice is anything to go by.

Writing for the blog, one landscaping guru suggested that high-quality outdoor seating made from durable woods, such as teak, has the potential to make a "gorgeous" addition to any backyard.

It was also claimed that the popularity of hardwood garden furniture sets results mainly from their ability to withstand even the most harsh winter conditions.

The expert wrote: "Here is a well-known fact – teak has been used for decks, railings, even seating on boats. That’s right, on ships for years!"

Shoppers were warned, however, that despite hardwood's tough characteristics, they should still make efforts to properly care for and maintain their items.

Meanwhile, a post on the Quality Articles blog has urged those buying a hardwood garden furniture set to also invest in a colourful patio umbrella to complement the style of their seating area and generally brighten things up.
