Why Teak is a Great Addition to Your Garden
Here at Garden Benches, all of our products are made from teak, and there is a good reason for using this material. First, teak is easy to work with, enabling us to produce beautiful finishes on all of our products. Teak is also highly resistant to decay and decay due to its high oil content, making it highly weather resistant, therefore, an ideal material for use in furniture for storage outdoors.
You can be sure that when you purchase a teak garden bench that, by using our waterproof bench covers in the harshest weather, your bench will be durable and long lasting. The beauty of teak is that you can enjoy your bench all season long as long as you treat it with TLC, meaning you don’t have to wait until Summer before treating yourself to one, maybe it could be a Christmas gift.
Caring for Your Teak
We’ve already mentioned that protecting your teak may mean using a waterproof cover in inclement weather and we stock a variety of covers to fit all of our benches. Using a cover is also ideal to prevent extra work for you once the weather starts to warm up, you can simply remove the cover and enjoy your bench instead of having to clean it before use. Teak does have a habit of aging to a silver-gray over time, which may look attractive, but if you want to maintain a dark brown look, there are oils you can use to treat your furniture. Garden Bench stocks a variety of oils to help you protect the color of your bench, including cleansers to restore color and protectants to help prevent color from fading in the first place.
Teak – The Sustainable Option
Here at Garden Benches, we take sustainability of the environment and our world’s forests seriously. To that end, all teak used in our products is sourced from ecologically managed plantations in Indonesia. The plantation works hard to ensure that the trees are replanted so that they are not only environmentally friendly but also stimulate the local community and economy of the region from which your teak originates. Indeed, the plantations we use here at Garden Benches are supported by Trees 4 Trees, an ethical non-profit organization that works to empower and educate local people by teaching them reforestation techniques. When you buy a garden bench from us, you will also receive a label with a unique code, allowing you to visit the Trees 4 Trees website and trace the origin of the wood you now have. So you can indulge yourself guilt-free, your purchase will not negatively impact the environment or landlords and communities in Indonesia.
If you are looking for a durable, easy to care for, ethical and beautiful addition to your garden then you really need look no further. At Garden Benches we have a wide range of benches, one of which is sure to suit your taste and needs. Why not treat yourself?
