Metal garden furniture has been a popular way to furnish the yard since the Victorians filled their gardens with iron benches. In fact, since this furniture can easily last for many years with the proper maintenance, some people are still using pieces in their gardens that were made in the Victorian era. If you want furniture that is long lasting and durable, you should consider metal garden furniture.
With choices ranging from lightweight aluminum to traditional iron, you should be able to find the perfect piece of metal garden furniture for your yard. In fact, you may want more than one piece.
A few metal chairs and a bistro table are fun additions to even the smallest patio area. Since these furniture pieces are usually on the small side, they are lightweight enough for you to be able to move them from place to place so that you can take advantage of changing garden views.
A single ornate iron bench can be a great accent piece for a Victorian style garden. These benches make wonderful focal points and can dress up drab spots in the garden. To really add some spark to the garden area under a shade tree, position an iron bench under the tree and then place several potted shade plants around it. Then, place a big pot of impatiens or a garden statue on the bench.
If your garden does not have a lot of color, you may want to choose a few metal chairs in a rainbow of colors. Position them in front of your evergreen shrubs, and they really make a statement. On the other hand, if your garden is filled with flowers, you may want to choose metal furniture painted in more traditional colors such as black or white to add a calmer element to the garden.
Make sure you add a touch of comfort to your deck or patio with a metal lounge chair. With a good book and a cup of iced tea, these chairs are the perfect way for you to relax on a sunny afternoon.
Finally, don’t forget about aluminum garden furniture. These pieces are extremely easy to carry around and usually fold up for easy storage when they are not in use. Aluminum sun loungers, tables, and chairs are all great pieces for times when you need just a few more pieces of furniture on the patio so that you can entertain your friends and family.
