Forget the Hard WorkRemember the days of all that hard work looking after and moving the garden furniture. The time when you had to fold away and store the furniture in the garage or garden shed. You would have to trundle it out when the sun shone, then fold it up and put it away again at the first sign of rain because if it got wet it would take weeks to dry out enough to use again. Now you can forget all that precious time wasting. Outdoor furniture these days is not only practical and no maintenance, but looks great too. The Rattan style of furniture means you no longer have to worry about where you’re going to store the furniture in the winter or what the weather will do to it, as Rattan furniture can remain outdoors all year round with no maintenance required at all.
Focal Points In the GardenWhen I take a stroll round the garden I like to sit and take in the colourful borders and pots or take the time to make plans. Which new plants need to be introduced to make the views as interesting as possible, which areas need a good tidy up or just an injection of colour.
To make the most of the garden I place a teak bench at the most interesting parts, this allows me to take in the scenery and gives me time to dwell and ponder the next season’s plan of action. I also like to create a focal point in the garden, such as a large garden ornament or container, then place a bench opposite so that your eye is drawn to the ornament.
A Living Room OutdoorsI have never claimed to be the best gardener in the world, I just like to have pleasant surroundings to relax when I come home from work, grab a glass of chilled white wine, and make the most of the balmy summer evenings relaxing on the patio. It could be a social occasion or just a quite time to myself, mulling over the day’s events. To create this relaxing atmosphere is so simple. With the wealth of beautiful patio furniture you can buy now it is very easy to create a living room outdoors.
I love the contemporary corner units on which to socialize and relax. If the corner units are not your thing then two and three seater sofas also look great. If you prefer your own space, then comfortable armchairs with luxurious waterproof cushions are a great alternative. If, like me, you like to eat outdoors, then the Rattan Cube style furniture is a great space saving idea. If your taste is for the more traditional look there are beautiful teak dining sets that add a quality look to the dining area. It is now so easy to create a peaceful haven in your own garden.
