Look after your hardwood garden furniture and enjoy its natural beauty
Hardwood is a beautiful material for the construction of garden furniture. As a natural product, it will require much protection from the elements in order to maximise its life and maintain its attractive appearance. We suggest that you take care of your furniture in accordance with these guidelines:
1 - Preservative Protection & Teak OilRegularly apply (at least twice in a season) an appropriate preservative to the timber. We endorse the range of products manufactured by Cuprinol , in particular Cuprinol Hardwood Garden Furniture Oil
2 - Physical ProtectionIn the Summer:
Cover the suite whenever possible in order to minimise the exposure to sunlight and rain. We sell a range of covers to suit our garden furniture. Our staff will be very happy to advise you.
In the Winter:
Don't leave it in the garden - store your suite in a garage or shed. It is not designed be exposed to winter weather no more than your indoor furniture is! Many chairs fold down for easy storage, and any rigid components can be carefully disassembled.
Whilst vinyl covers offer ideal protection during the summer they should not be regarded as an alternative to storing in a shed or garage. This is because these vinyl covers will encourage condensation which will be very harmful to the timber by causing mould or even rot.
Following the above guidlelines should ensure that you can enjoy your hardwood garden furniture for many seasons.
