A garden can be your own private oasis at home, a place to sit and enjoy the sunshine, play games with your children, host barbecues, and take part in many more of the best things in life.
The right garden furniture can be the perfect centrepiece for a garden, bringing all of the elements together to form a garden that represents you, and is the perfect place to relax.
The last thing you want once you have worked out the perfect furniture, is for it to slowly wear away and lose its beauty over time, this is where metal garden furniture comes in.
With very little treatment, metal garden furniture can last you a lifetime, meaning that you never have to worry about replacing it.
Aluminium, wrought iron, patinated zinc, and steel are all popular choices when it comes to tables and seating for outside. These are not without downsides, aluminium can be costly, and wrought iron and steel are prone to rust, for example, also some metal is too heavy, meaning it’s hard to move or can mark your lawn, or too light meaning it can blow over in the wind.
However, that’s the beauty of variety, with so many different types of metal to choose from, you can pick the right furniture for your garden, whether heavier to counteract wind, or metal that will age, but do so beautifully, to create a unique, one of a kind appearance.
The biggest advantage of metal is how long it can last. As long as you touch up chips with a little paint when necessary, avoid rusting by using protective coatings, and put your furniture away or ensure it is fully covered during the winter months or prolonged periods of disuse, then the furniture you have can last you as long as you need it to.
