Ireland is subject to various extremities in weather conditions and this can have a negative impact on your garden furniture. It is very difficult to envisage quite how cold and wet it will be in Ireland over the course of the year, especially when you are in a beautiful indoor garden furniture centre looking at furniture sets .

Large multiples sell such a large quantity of garden furniture and that is because the quality is not what it seems and wooden garden furniture sets will soften over time and eventually rot if left out in the rain. At the very best the wooden furniture will need restoration and labour hours to keep in good order.

Rattan Garden Furniture is the exception and can be left out in the wet and cold all year round, however we do recommend a cover to keep it in top condition. We advise to cover  furniture in the winter and even summer, as no furniture is exempt from good old fashioned Irish dirt and mould. Apart from the everyday dirt that will show up on anything left outside the rattan furniture at is capable of staying outside all year round. The rattan itself is a Poly synthetic rattan and is made from a heavy duty PVC which means that it is not susceptible to the rain or sun. Combine this with the fact that the rattan is woven around a metal frame and has a UV protection you have an all weather item of furniture.

Even if you are unable to cover your rattan garden furniture in the winter months it is easy to clean when the spring arrives. The fact that the rattan is synthetic means that it is easily washed down with hot soapy water. Even a jet spray can be used to get into the harder to reach areas. This ability to keep the furniture clean is very useful as anyone who has spent a day sanding and oiling wooden garden furniture will testify to. Gone are the days of spending all day washing your furniture, then sanding it all down before finally rubbing teak oil in all just to stop it from falling apart.

Anyone in the market for a stress free or maintenance free garden furniture solution would be well advised to give furniture a go.
