With England still under lockdown, many of us are looking forward to the warmer weather and being able to get out and enjoy the garden. Often people have patio dining sets that consist of a table and 4 or 6 chairs in which they can enjoy a meal around but these aren’t always the comfiest if you want to sit in them for long periods of time. Rattan furniture sets are the perfect addition to any garden. You can buy a number of different configurations such as two or three seater sofas, single chairs, corner sofas and coffer tables. These can be moved around to how best fits in the space you have available. You can often pick up a... Read More »
Spending time outside is good for the health, both mental and physical; fresh air, pleasant views and a change of scene from being inside the house are all very good for you. Outdoor space can be enhanced with features like glass verandas that are constructed over a patio or seating area, providing a place to sit and relax with comfort and shade available.

In the last post we outlined the great advantages of garden seating on decking. But what about the decking itself? Is it worth putting in the effort and money for some extra wooden flooring outside? Apart from the fact it gives your home another comfortable seating area, garden decking can be used for many other purposes. For one, it allows for a cleaner kid friendly play area outside. You may have to make some alterations for particularly younger children, such as extra fencing to enclose the area.
