No matter how pleasant a garden is, it is not being enjoyed to its full extent if there is nowhere for visitors to sit and admire the beauty of the garden.
Luckily, few gardeners are willing to sacrifice design for comfort and with the wide choice of garden patio furniture sets available today, it is rare to find gardens bereft of garden furniture. Garden furniture will if anything look great with just about any style of garden.
Indeed, many gardens will provide several different items of garden furniture so that people have the flexibility to enjoy the garden from a variety of positions. So how does the gardener decide which of these many types of furniture should be added, and to which parts of the garden.
Firstly, they should decide how the garden will be used, formally or informally. Some people entertain a great deal, and would use their patios or decks as an extra room for entertaining, while others just want to enjoy the peace and quiet of their gardens.
Alternatively the garden may double up as an play area for children.
In order to entertain properly, guest should not be crowded and so plenty of seating is required. If you entertain frequently, you should consider garden benches and deck chairs for more flexibility.
Also should you be lucky enough with the climate to serve meals to your guests without leaving your beautiful gardens, then consider a large garden table and chairs so that you have plenty of room.
Additionally you will probably need a decent parasol for your garden table, so that you can entertain with protection from the sun (or rain).
Protection from the sun is something the gardener should be conscious of, and what better way to relax in your garden, than to add a hammock to a shady area in the garden.
Remember, that you do not necessarily need two obliging trees, as you can fasten the hammock to two four by four posts that are cemented into the ground, or for a quick solution, you could purchase a hammock stand.
Some people prefer to just soak up the sun and for those people the ideal items of furniture are loungers on your patio or deck.
Indeed, a patio or deck doesn’t look finished if it is bare of a patio furniture set. A patio furniture set is complemented well by either wooden, plastic or metal outdoor patio furniture.
There should be no problems locating the right pieces for your garden patio and be sure to consider a patio heater. A heater can extend your use of the garden both daily and seasonally.
Finally, as you wander through the garden beds, you will find that there are certain places that are ideal to linger in and ponder. These places are ideal spots for garden benches or a couple of chairs and a side table.
You also may want to add a decorative garden bench to any area in your garden that is a bit bland or in need of a focal point.
The patio furniture and the designs in this video have certainly got the “Wow” factor. Got to be super expensive, but if you can’t afford that level, at least it has probably given you good layout ideas!
