Proper Garden Furniture Selection Can Transform Your Garden Into a Magical Place
As a little girl of about 6 or 7 years old, I came in acquaintance with a lady who kept the most amazing garden. She was a friend of my Mom’s, and visit her a couple of times a year. This woman had the most intriguing setup that made it seem her garden would go on forever. Gardening was her passion and she spent hours working on her garden, the results of her loving efforts were absolutely stunning. I remember spending hours walking through the garden with her as she explained the variety of different plants and how to care for them, I could not get over how magical her garden seemed to be. She always had well-placed garden furniture throughout the garden so you can sit and enjoy the day.
Someday I would really enjoy to have a garden like hers. Her garden covered more than 2 acres, and I still wonder how she managed the entire garden by herself. Each of the pieces of the garden furniture was almost as lovely as the garden itself, in reflection I don’t think the garden would have been as beautiful and magical had the furniture not been as nice as it was. She had a talent and a special touch to make a garden unlike any I have ever experienced, or have seen since.
When you’re looking to purchase garden furniture, keep in mind that these pieces should complement and enhance your garden. Find pieces which seem as if it belongs there, rather than just being placed there. Today there are plenty of garden furniture pieces to choose from, so finding the perfect set or individual pieces shouldn’t be too difficult to find. If you spend any time in your garden, you will know the right piece when you come upon it.
Some considerations to remember our to check for durability and the material it’s made with. Some materials will rest somewhat quickly, and you want to stay away from those. Instead, look for products which are already protected, or be sure to paint and protect it on your own. Once you find that perfect piece, you wouldn’t want to have to throw it away next year because it didn’t survive the winter. There is no need to go overboard, a few strategic pieces to occupy a few small spaces will be perfect and then you can let mother nature have the rest.
