collaborative post | Ready to whip your garden into shape? If you’re ready to make your garden one of the best on the block then you’re probably thinking about more than just the soil and all the fun you will have planting different flowers during springtime. You’re probably also thinking about the type of furniture you can use in your garden.

One of the most widely used types of gardening furniture is metal furnishing. However, there are so many other stunning pieces from other types of materials, you may find your head getting a bit foggy about exactly which choice is right for you.

Here are some of the main benefits of going with metal:


The biggest benefit of choosing metal for garden furniture is that the material is tough. When you choose furniture that is made of wood it’s easy for a woodpecker to enter the garden and start chipping away at the wood or for termites to infest and start eating it for lunch.

However when you select metal that has been NDT tested you are selecting furnishings that will give you bang for your buck.

Weather Resistance

If you’re ready to get access to high levels of weather resistance then metal furnishings are a great choice for your garden. Come rain or shine you can expect that your metal furnishings will withstand any test that is being thrown at it.

This is the beauty of this type of furnishing: you can have peace of mind even when the storms are raging outside. Once everything is settled your furniture will still be standing and looking great.


The cost-effectiveness of metal makes it very attractive. Sure, you could select wood furniture for your garden, it will probably look great!

You will certainly have to dig a lot less deeper into your pockets to pull off this option. There are all types of wood everywhere and it’s a dime a dozen, so to speak.  This makes it easy to afford and access.

However, this cheapness comes with a price and that is a lack of longevity! You can expect to see your wooden garden furnishings falling apart a lot more quickly than metal ones.

Metal garden furnishings are built to last, you keep more money in your pocket in the long run.

Reduced Maintenance

If you’re looking for a lazy way to keep great looking garden furniture then metal gardening furniture is right for you. With wooden furnishings you’re going to have to make sure that you are repainting or restraining it at different points in time.

This can be a hassle, instead of just sitting and enjoying the sunshine on your furniture you’re going to have to think about maintaining it. With metal you won’t have these worries.

When you’re trying to make your garden look as pretty as possible, having great furnishing is a necessity. However, just because it’s a necessity doesn’t mean that it should give you a headache or fall apart at the drop of a hat. You want furnishings that you can enjoy for a long time.
