Garden furniture can be a significant investment, so it's important to take proper care of it to ensure its longevity. By following a few simple steps, you can keep your outdoor furniture looking great for years to come. In this blog post, we'll share some expert tips on how to care for your garden furniture.
1. Protect Your Parasols
When the wind picks up, it's essential to put your parasols down. Leaving them open in strong winds can cause damage to both the parasol and your furniture. By folding them down, you'll prevent any potential accidents and extend their lifespan.
2. Store Cushions Properly
When your cushions are not in use, it's best to store them away. Make sure they are completely dry before storing them to prevent mould and mildew growth. If you have a storage box, ensure that it is raised off the ground. If your storage box is made of rattan, consider using a cover to protect it from the elements.
3. Invest in Quality Covers
Covers are an excellent way to protect your garden furniture from bird droppings, leaves, and other debris. While they may not be 100% waterproof, they offer a layer of protection. We personally recommend the Bosmere covers for their durability and reliability. Remember to only cover your furniture if it is unable to rise in the wind, and use extra weights if necessary. When covering your garden furniture, it is important to remove the cushions, push the furniture all together and make sure you make a tent like shape by placing a bucket upside down in the middle, this way the water won't pool.
