Starting Over with an Outdoor Swing

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Outdoor gardens can be a wonderful, peaceful place to relax and unwind or they can be a place that is overgrown or barren that you avoid. It all depends on the time and effort you put into designing a garden that gives you the kind of environment you can enjoy.

One of the best ways I have found to create an outdoor garden space that I love spending time in is by starting with one central item, such as an outdoor swing. Take this item and find the perfect place for it and then build the rest of the garden around it. Create a unified look based on that one item.

The large pieces you choose will have an important impact on the look and feel of your garden. Planning ahead will help you create a unified look that works as you add each new piece.

When you use a central item to begin your garden, you must choose it carefully and with thought. This will help you eliminate the possibility of designing a space that you end of hating and avoiding.

Making Outdoor Patio Furniture Covers

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Making outdoor patio furniture covers is easier than you think. By making your own covers you get the design and colors that you want. Making your own covers will also save you money. I have seen patio set covers made out of a variety of different fabrics. There is no right fabric. The choice of fabric is up to the individual taste.

I don’t have to tell you how important it is to keep your patio furniture covered if it will not be in use for extended periods of time. Protecting your patio set from the elements, regardless of the season, is key to keeping your investment protected and in the best shape possible. Particularly vulnerable are outdoor patio sets in tropical or seaside climates, where extremely intense sun and/or salty air will break down your furniture’s protective finish in well under a year. Covering your furniture is a time and money saver compared to completely refinishing your furniture.

Quest For Patio Furniture Covers

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

When I was choosing new patio furniture covers I felt a bit lost. I was really tired of having to wash my patio table each time my family wanted to eat in the backyard, which in the summer is almost every other day. I live in an area that has a lot of squirrels and birds and raccoons and I just wasn’t comfortable with my children eating off the table before I had a chance to wash in it good warm soapy water.

I have some lovely furniture that looks like it is made from exotic hard wood but it really isn’t. I expect it is made with pine and stained to look exotic. I got a great deal on the furniture at Home Depot about six years ago. Another reason I desire some new patio furniture covers is that the rain and the sun can really destroy the finish on my wooden furniture. The furniture has really aged well and I have nothing to complain about. However, without annual or bi-annual maintenance it can show its age.

Garden Parasols 101

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

OK, the sun is shining and there is not a cloud in the sky. Perhaps, though, you want some shade – a parasol – for your garden. This article looks at some of the options of wooden parasol available. A full range of parasols is available from Garden Furniture Scotland. Other articles in this series cover Cantilever Parasols, Aluminium Parasols, and Parasol Bases.

If you want the parasol to shade a table, you need to decide if it will go through the centre of the table, in which case you will need a table with a central hole. This hole should accommodate most parasol stems – the hole in most tables is about 51mm but can vary either way.

Amazingly, parasols stems have an industry standard and most (though, of course not all) are either 38mm or 48mm in diameter. If there is a hole in the centre of your table, then you are best to choose a through the table parasol. The most popular parasol is the central pole parasol which doesn’t stand on its own but is most commonly placed through the centre of the table.

The best material to go for when selecting Patio Furniture?

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

The furniture that we buy for rooms in our home and those which we buy for our patios are most certainly not the same.

For one thing indoor furniture doesn’t need to be weather proof and for another, indoor furniture needs to fit into your dcor.

Also, there are thousands of different colours in nature so patio furniture doesn’t need to match with them all, yet indoor furniture needs to correspond with the existing colour schemes.

Saying that, there are features of patio furniture that need to be sorted out, such as how it will be treated to save it from harsh weather conditions.

One of the most favoured patio furniture materials is that of cedar wood.

The list of benefits that this type of wood has over others is almost unending.

It’s a completely natural materials which comes from trees which grow in both the Himalaya and Mediterranean regions.

The grain of the wood contains many cylinder shapes which allow water drops to run straight through it to the roots, without soaking into the wood and making it warp out of shape, bend or buckle as a result.

The advantages that paved slab patios have on a garden are plenty, besides simply that they look good and provide an area to have patio furniture and barbecues etc.Although getting one of these put in is much easier said than done and many prefer to hire a professional than tackle the job themselves.

Have a look for advice from experts before you try and create a patio or paved slab area on your own, as it’s a process that must be done correctly. So just so that you don’t forget the most important things, here’s our guide to placing paved slabs in your garden without an expert.

Firstly, consider what type of soil you have and the area that you would like to have paved.If you’re just having a path put down the then the whole process will be a lot more simple than if you’re planning a patio.

Although any area being paved needs to be measured to the last millimetre.Don’t forget that very soft soil will need to be mixed with gravel or pebbles to stop the paving slabs sinking once they’re placed.
