Environmentally Friendly Outdoor Furniture

By Cristian Stan Subscribe to RSS | July 24th 2012 | Views:

Homes that boast beautiful gardens, patios or decks should not be wasted. They’re meant to be enjoyed and, thus, should be furnished in pleasing and durable fashions. Since most outdoor furniture is left there for a great deal of the year, it should be furniture of high quality. If not, it won’t last year after year through all of the weather and elements.

Something else to be considered is the planet. People don’t want to negatively impact the environment any more than necessary. That’s why they work to reduce the carbon footprint left behind. Choosing the best outdoor furniture can be a way to handle this.

A great deal of outdoor furniture is constructed from plastic or metal. Plastic pollutes the planet with additional carbon footprints and it can take many decades to bio-degrade. Metal furniture has a lot of issues. It must be mined, and people are worried that the earth is being robbed of minerals. However, old metal is recyclable.

That leaves outdoor furniture made from hardwood. Using renewable sources is the best way to save the forests because trees are sustainable. For this reason, garden furniture created from hardwood is not only more durable, but it’s also most environmentally friendly. If you care for hardwood garden or patio furniture the way the manufacturer instructs, it will last for ten years or longer. This is much longer than plastic furniture, which may need to be replaced every couple of years.

Acacia hardwood is durable and comfortable. It’s a lot like teak in that if left untreated, it will turn to a silver grey color. It’s a good idea to treat all of your hardwood furniture once or twice yearly with a decent oil to keep up the original warm tones.

Upright chairs, a couple of tables, and some loungers are usually the choice for outdoor furniture. As long as they’re strong and comfortable, it doesn’t matter which ones you choose. Add suitable lighting, an electric mosquito killer, and a patio heater to make it even more comfortable when you decide to spend some time in your garden, on your patio or deck. One upright propane heater will do nicely, and an electric mosquito killer typically keeps an entire garden free of insects.

Once you’ve arranged your garden furniture and accessories, there’s no reason that you shouldn’t enjoy the outdoors as much as you enjoy the inside of your home.
