Garden Sofa Covers

Garden furniture covers are a neccessity when investing in a new modular or sofa set. Not only are new covers waterproof, breathable and protect from UV rays, they also come in a strong, durable fabric that should last more than one season. At Hayes Garden World we recommend Bramblecrest, Oxford, Barlow Tyrie and Alexander Rose as leading suppliers. Covers are also available for dining and lounge sets, benches, chairs and cocoons. If you need help choosing the correct cover for your garden furniture please call the sales team who will be able to help. Delivery to the UK mainland is free on all orders over £50.

Furniture and Barbecue Buyer
Ian has worked for Hayes since leaving school, spending the majority of this time in the outdoor furniture department and like Keith has an in-depth knowledge of Hayes customers. He also has the same ethos at heart when buying garden furniture; will it be an acceptable price and quality? He also takes into account the changing fashions and environmental considerations, such as using recycled materials, being recyclable at the end of its life and is the timber sourced from forests which have a re-planting policy. Ian’s other passion is barbecuing which resulted in Hayes having one of the few Weber Worlds within The Barbecue Shop here in store. The Barbecue Shop has gained a reputation as being one of the best places in north west England to obtain all your BBQ requisites as it stocks everything you need apart from the food. Some of our best sellers are the Angus & Oink and Traeger rubs and sauces which can elevate your food from the ordinary to the absolutely divine. Ian regularly posts on Instagram the results of his grilling labours and it’s not just the usual barbecue fare of bangers and burgers. If you head to the Hayes Garden World Youtube channel you can view almost 200 videos Ian has appeared in with top BBQ chef Richard Holden. These videos show you that there is no limit to the creative dishes you can cook on your BBQ, whether it’s fuelled by gas, charcoal, electric or wood pellets. Almost all the dishes are simple and well within the capabilities of any barbecuer, they range from the Christmas dinner to puddings to vegetarian dishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answered by our expert 'Ian Hodgett'
All the garden furniture sold by Hayes Garden World is fully weatherproof and can be left out all year round, however if you want your garden sofa to look in pristine condition for longer then we do recommend that you cover it over the winter or when not in use.
Some of our garden furniture does come with a free cover but they are usually sold as an optional extra. 
No, all the covers for the garden sofas are specific sizes so when buying your cover you must know the exact measurement of your sofa. If there is no specific cover for your sofa please call our Customer Services team who will be able to suggest a suitable alternative.

Buyers guide to garden sofa covers. A cover for your garden sofa protects the piece from adverse weather conditions, dust, mildew and the suns UV rays. Although the garden furniture sold by Hayes are fully weatherproof and can be left outdoors all year round. Covering them over the winter ensures they remain in an ‘as new’ condition as long as possible. All the maintenance you have to do in spring is brush the furniture down with a soft brush to remove any grit particles embedded in the weave and fabric. Any wooden garden furniture will require treatment less frequently if the sets are covered when not in use.

The first consideration is to make sure you know the size of the garden sofa as many of the covers are specific to particular styles of garden furniture. Some garden sofas have dedicated covers, if you are struggling to find one the correct size just call our Customer Services team on the number at the top of the website and they will be able to find you a cover to fit. Just make sure you have all the measurements of the sofa. Unfortunately there is not a ‘one size fits’ all garden sofa cover.

Make sure the cover you are considering is breathable, if there is not a good airflow around the garden sofa there is a tendency for mildew and other moulds to grow. Although they will not affect the function of the furniture they  can be difficult to remove and are unsightly. If the material from which the cover is constructed if fully waterproof make sure it has mesh panels or some other means of allowing the air to circulate. Make sure the covers shed water and that it is not allowed to pool as that is when it will seep through the cover. Place a bucket on the sofa seat underneath the cover to allow water to run straight off, make sure the covers are pulled as tight as possible. The cover must have some means by which you can fasten it securely around the bottom of the furniture, if it’s not secure you run the risk of losing it in strong winds. If strong winds are forecast secure all the garden furniture pieces together to prevent the lighter chairs from flying around the garden where it could cause damage to people and property.

Buying a cover from a reputable brand could be more cost effective than a cheaper alternative, it will use more robust fabric, be better constructed and, in most cases, will come with some warranty. The fabric is also more likely be UV resistant, making it resistant to fading.
