Here comes the sun!

As the sun sinks down and the glow of evening arrives, your garden invites you to relax. To sit down, feet up, drink in hand; enjoying all the sights, sounds and smells of a summer’s garden, writes Nicci Gow of Fresh @ Burcot Garden Centre.

The vibrant, hot colours of geraniums, petunias and verbenas; the heady scents of roses, jasmine and lavender, combine with the babble of a water feature and the sound of a steak sizzling on the barbecue to create the perfect summer evening in an English garden.

Add to this the warmth of a chiminea and the twinkle of a few solar lights and there’s just one thing missing – the most comfortable place to sit and enjoy the scene.

When choosing garden furniture there is a bewildering array of styles and materials available, but make sure you spend your money wisely and get the furniture that is right for you and your lifestyle.

Visiting a specialist garden retailer like Fresh @ Burcot Garden Centre, where you can get good advice, see a variety of styles and types and be sure of getting the best possible value, is much better than buying blind off the internet.

When you are spending your hard-earned money on a set of garden furniture you must be confident that you are buying something that is good quality, can be delivered and assembled for you if required, and offers the best value for money.

As an independent retailer, Fresh @ Burcot is able to offer a individually selected range of garden furniture, from several different suppliers, so there is something to suit all households and pockets.

Currently, the most popular type of furniture is manufactured in resin weave. This gives the look and feel of traditional wicker furniture, but is completely weatherproof. It is designed to be left outside, come rain or shine, requires very little maintenance and will last for many years.

A quality piece will have a sturdy aluminium frame and the wicker should be colourfast and resistant to UV rays, sun lotion and chlorine. Check the guarantee time too – a minimum three-year guarantee should be available, with up to 10 years for the best sets.

Aluminium or all-resin sets are good weatherproof choices too, while wood gives a lovely traditional feel to any garden, but may require a little work if you want to maintain the original look.

Whatever you choose, make sure you are sitting comfortably this summer and make the most of those lovely, long, hot days and wonderful, long, balmy evenings!
