Outdoor Teak Garden Furniture
One of the most common garden decorations and furnishings is furniture. Various family activities are done in the garden. Thus, providing the garden with furniture pieces that are elegant and comfortable at the same time is just but the right thing to do. There can be many options for garden furniture. However, one of the most popular choices today is teak garden furniture. Teak has become one of the most desired materials for garden furniture due to its unique aesthetic appeal, natural resistance to the outdoor elements and unparalleled durability. It is made from a tropical hardwood species which is famous for being literally outdoor-proof and extremely durable. Teak has also a highly appealing golden brown color that eventually changes into silvery grey which, however, is often considered even more beautiful because it gives the furniture a unique look. But the thing that makes it so valued is the fact that it is naturally resistant to just about all outdoor elements including termites and the effects of the weather.
Teak garden furniture is generally low-maintenance, but there are some simple things you can do to make sure they last a lifetime still looking fresh. Apply a thin coat of teak oil on the surface of your teak furniture after you clean it. Do this at least once a month, or whenever the weather is especially dry or humid. This oil replaces all the natural oil that teak loses because of everyday weathering, and restores the color, shine, and durability of your furniture.
