Dressing one's garden is a thing that people love to do. The way we dress our garden will always depend on the style of the garden, the ambient weather, whether we seek shade or sun and of course our budget.
The simplest and easiest and most basic of Garden furniture is a set of folding chairs and a table. These can obviously be brought out when the weather is nice and packed away as soon as inclement weather approaches. There are any numbers of designs for these and possible a garden shed is the ideal place to store them.
The beginning of dressing one's garden is the basic design and layout. How one plans a garden is of course dependent on a lot of factors such as size, slope, position of the house, the driveway and so on.
Most houses will want the driveway to link close to the house. And border the driveway with flowerbeds or a grass lawn. Setting up one's recreational are next to a driveway is unusual. Normally the recreational, or sitting out area is away from the cars.
Central to the recreational area is probably a grass lawn. So the step up from folding chairs and a table would be more permanent furnishings either made in cast iron or of wooden construction. The cast iron garden furniture is very durable, heavy and is usually located in one place and seldom moved.
With modern day wooden garden furniture being well treated it to is fairly weather proof and durable and will withstand a fair amount of rain but too much exposure to direct sunlight will mean that is will require periodic treatment.
A garden Gazebo is popular as garden furniture as it gives the feeling of being outside while still being given shade. These gazebos are highly fashionable and usually consist of a raised wooden deck and open walls and a roof. Permanent tables and chairs are placed inside the gazebo which makes them a delightful place to sit and relax.
A wooden shed is another almost essential item of garden furniture as there will be many items, such as the lawn mower, the garden hose and the gardening tools to store away. Not too mention the folding chairs and table that are kept in reserve.
Water features are another idyllic feature and these can be purchased as pre-made or one can design them oneself and just purchase the pumps and pipes. The gentle trickle of running water adds a great sense of peace to anyone relaxing nearby.
Shade is of course required, especially if one has a sitting out area next to a swimming pool. Modern day shade parasols have developed so that they are durable and can be made so that they are suspended from the side and thus have no central post to get in the way.
Some other bits of furniture which are available are accessories like the sauna, a pool deck and a covered veranda.
The only limitation of placing garden furniture is imagination and budget. Even with small gardens furniture can be arranged to make it be a pleasant place to enjoy the open air.
