Better Backyards

There are too many reasons to name as to why is important to make sure that you were protecting your family at all costs. As a family owned business we take this incredibly seriously. It would be nice to think that this means not only are we eco-friendly in the production of all our furniture, but we also make sure that we are looking out for the best interest of the people who use our products.

We can offer tons of recommendations and suggestions on companies to use to make your landscape or backyard look like an oasis that no one else can compete with. Our experience as quality backyard furniture makers has given us the advantage over other people in the area who don’t know much about how to take care of their customers. So what we do, is give you as much insight as to how somebody can make their backyard Look amazing without having to break the bank. Having custom patio furniture is one way of impressing people who come to your house to hang out.

Entertaining friends and family has got to be one of the best things to do when realizing how rich you have become by building furniture. There was a time where we were sleeping on couches and drinking super cheap beer, and now we are getting cases of craft beer shipped to our doorstep without even knowing its coming. It’s obvious that the first thing we are going to recommend is that you get high-quality teak Oak and Cedar furniture as fixtures to your backyard. It even makes sense to get a patio cover that’s made of some new era sustainable materials such as Cedar or Birch. But if you don’t want to go that route and you’re content with just using what you already have then here is an idea that we’ve come across.

Let’s say you’re one of the fortunate people who are able to afford a patio cover that matches your teak patio furniture. I’m sure it looked amazing but now what happens that now you have to move away and you have a hot tub with the wood frame that matches your patio cover matches your pool deck matches Urine hose covering and you have the ultimate backyard ready for a game day now it’s time to move. Will it make sense to try to take as much as you can with you and less you’re ready to have a major garage sale. Most people that we know decided to take their hot tubs with them because of this year cost of the investment in the time that was wasted trying to find the best deal on a new or used hot tub

It would be nice to think that all it takes it just a couple of beautiful custom design furniture pieces in your backyard to enhance the look of what you are trying to accomplish. But that is not the case. It takes more than just a couple of vintage pieces that you purchased online to have to call the look of your backyard. In most cases, you need to get some type of pool restoration or hot tub investment or pool deck investment or even a patio cover to do something that screams innovation to the look of your house.

There are a lot of houses in the area that were built a long time ago and it makes sense to spend the money to bring them to current standards and modernize these to the fullest potential. However, I can not be the neglect of the outside is where most people spend their time and for that reason, it is in the best interest to invest in bbq grills, gazebos, canvas umbrellas, and more. We try not to intrude on your backyard party, never. We think everyone who buys good outdoor furniture should spend a lot of money. Life is short, so do it big. You want a lot of people around to entertain.

Pool Maintenance Is Important

One of the key aspects of having a nice backyard is having a nice clean swimming pool or hot tub. What is the point of having a amazing patio furniture from a reputable furniture company, if your swimming pool has not been taken care of and looks terrible? Let’s face it, the swimming pool is the centerpiece of a properly landscaped property. If you have a gazebo, patio cover, or even a fancy BBQ island, it means nothing if your guests can’t enjoy a perfectly clean swimming pool.

It’s not just about appearances either. You don’t want people going into a body of water that hasn’t been properly treated to make sure that no one gets sick. There are all kinds of water-borne illnesses and parasites that can latch onto loved ones, and make it especially dangerous for small kids and pets who might end up in the water. There is nothing worse than seeing when people buy our furniture to make an improvement on their property or increase their level of comfort when entertaining guests, but sometimes things don’t add up.

A few of our readers have sent photos of their backyards with products that look similar to ours, but are just cheaper versions that aren’t made with the same workmanship. We notice that in most, if not all of these photos, there are several things about the backyard that looks terrible. It’s almost like these customers are always looking for a way to cut corners, and not spend the money required to do the job correctly. Instead, we see email after email, from people who found a bootleg version of our patio furniture, but the gazebo is outdated, or the swimming pool is dirty and green, or even worse, completely black to the point that no one should even think of dipping their toe in the water.

We always ask, why bother? Seriously, the first thing you should do before buying high-end patio furniture has a professional pool cleaning service take a look at your pool if you already have one. If you are thinking about building a pool, or a portable hot tub, feel free to ask us questions about your shopping process, and we may be able to refer you to a reputable pool cleaning service, pool builder, pool contractor, or hot tub distributor in your area.

We suggest finding a reliable pool contractor in your area and gathering a few quotes before making a selection on one company to hire. Even after you choose one pool cleaning company, you may not like them in a couple of months, and want to move on to another pool technician. It makes sense to have a good idea on what to expect in each scenario. The simple tasks are pretty much the same, it’s all about whether or not you feel like you are getting the best value for what you pay per month and per service.

No matter what you decide, it makes sense to explore all aspects of your backyard and leave no stone unturned. You will be amazed by how much things will improve just by adding a few plants, or removing dead shrubs, or even making sure your pool is clean. Once you add our award winning furniture, you have the winning scenario. All you need to do is find a way to have a TV installed in your backyard, and protect it from the elements. We might talk about that in more detail in another post.

Contemporary Teak

If your furniture is to be used indoors away from natural sunlight, it will gradually become a darker shade of brown over a period of 6 to 12 months.

If on the other hand, the furniture is left outdoors, the effects of the suns rays will ‘bleach out’ the timbers natural color gradually turning it a soft silvery grey. This silvery grey ‘patina’ which develops over time gives Teak Outdoor Furniture it’s distinctive appearance. The resulting color from this natural ageing process is considered to be very
attractive, and allows the furniture to blend in well with many outdoor environments.

Teak outdoor furniture left in this state is easily maintained, and needs no treatment whatsoever to give many years of service. Teak furniture is basically maintenance free.

Teak Benches

Teak has a beautiful golden to dark brown and sometimes reddish brown pigment. It’s grain is usually straight but
may at times appear somewhat wavy. Teak is rich in natural oils, easily worked, and dresses to a very smooth
finish. Due to its natural oils, teak is very durable and resistant to moisture and the drying effects of exposure to
weather.

Teak is unique in that it does not cause rust or corrode when in contact with metal. Teak is a very valuable prized wood throughout the world and is sought for use in decks, trim, detail work in expensive boats, fine furniture, flooring, carving, joinery, cabinetwork, paneling, turnery and veneer.

The natural characteristic of teak are its durability in all weather conditions, extremely dense grain,and it’s resistance to rot, warping, shrinking and swelling. Teak’s high natural oil content continually preserves the wood so it can be left outdoors for decades. Because of teak’s durability in all weather conditions, it has been used as ship decking and in bench construction for years.

The decking on many ships has been found in such good condition when the ships were about to be scrapped that the wood was recycled and made into outdoor furniture. Teak continues to be used for these purposes today and we are proud to offer these fine garden furniture products.

Besides it’s durability, teak furniture is very smooth and does not splinter. The color of teak also stays very neutral in all weather conditions, whether exposed to the sun or cold winter days. It also maintains a pleasant aroma for years and years.
