During the warmer months of the year, there is nothing better than relaxing outside in our gardens, basking in the fresh air and the peace and tranquillity. If however, you are forced to sit on, and around, cheap plastic patio furniture, well, the experience is hardly enjoyable or comfortable. We want our gardens to look their best, yet we want to be comfortable at the same time, and we want our guests to be comfortable at the same time. If you feel that your garden could do with a bit of an overhaul, you may wish to consider investing in great quality teak wood garden furniture. To help convince you that this is the right thing to do, take a look at the following, as we look at 4 reasons to invest in teak garden furniture.

Long-term investment – When people purchase cheap and nasty patio furniture, they generally do so just so that they have something other than the ground to sit on for that particular summer. Thanks to general wear and tear, as well as harsh weather conditions associated with the changing of the seasons, this furniture quickly deteriorates and breaks down, meaning that you will need to replace it a few months later. Teak wood however, is incredibly durable and so for that reason, with careful maintenance, it will last a lifetime, making it a fantastic long-term investment.

Hard wearing – As mentioned, teak wood is incredibly durable and hard wearing, making it perfect for locations prone to harsh weather conditions. With cheaper woods, rain, ice, snow, and even the sunshine, can all have negative effects on them and can cause them to break down. Teak however, will not rot in the rain, it will not fade, it will not crack, and it will not decompose. Providing you perform general maintenance, your teak garden furniture will withstand even the harshest of weather conditions, for many decades to come.

Easy to maintain – Teak is a wood that is incredibly easy to maintain, and what’s more, with a little maintenance not only does it last, but it also looks absolutely fantastic as well. Generally you can apply a mild oil or stain to help preserve the wood and protect it from the elements, which will also enhance its appearance. It can also easily wipe clean with a mild soap and warm water, which will bring it looking as good as new.

Looks great – Some woods just seem to look better than others, and teak is one of those woods. Rather than cheaper woods such as pine, teak just has a look of class and elegance about it, and it really enhances outdoor spaces no end. It is a beautiful golden brown colour that will naturally fade with time, although if preserved, the colour can obviously be maintained. The finish is flawless yet rustic at the same time, and it just looks absolutely fantastic and would make a welcome addition to any outdoor patio or garden seating area.
