Rattan garden furniture sets 'are strong and durable'

12/10/2010 Synthetic rattan garden furniture sets are ideal for use in harsh weather conditions, it has been suggested.

The Lazy Susan blog explained that rattan garden furniture sets can be made with either natural or man-made materials, but in the UK they are likely to be constructed from the latter.

Advantages of synthetic rattan garden furniture sets include strength and durability. They are also extremely easy to clean and generally lighter than alfresco furniture made from other materials, the blog added.

"Synthetic rattan furniture is far better at withstanding harsh weather conditions than real wood garden furniture," it explained.

Natural rattan garden furniture sets were also said to be generally slightly more expensive that their man-made counterparts.

If you want to keep your garden furniture in top condition over the winter months, it could be best to store them inside when they're not being used.

Writing for the Daily Mail, Martyn Cox explained recently that if they have to be kept outside, it's best to cover tables and chairs with waterproof covers and place them on top of bricks.  ADNFCR-3488-ID-800111772-ADNFCR
