Garden Furniture Buyers Guide
Hayes Garden World have been trading for over 200 years and have a reputation for outstanding service and only stocking the best quality products. We were one of the first garden centres to stock garden furniture and as result have decades of experience in supplying furniture from only the best manufacturers. We have been dealing with the same manufacturers for decades and as one of the UK's largest stockists we are able to negotiate with our suppliers to ensure our customers are able to choose from a huge selection at the most competitive prices. Whatever you require to make your outdoor space a comfy area where you can relax and entertain your family and friends we can supply, whether it's a comfy lounge set, dining table and chairs, sunloungers, a bench or a cocoon chair to pop into a corner and escape for a couple of hours. Our styles are suitable both for the traditional English garden or a contemporary urban outdoor space so we are confident that we can make your life so much more enjoyable.
All our garden furniture carries a 1 year manufacturers warranty with many designs also having an additional years guarantee from ourselves. The warranty covers any problems arising from defective materials or construction not the result of the furniture inappropiately stored during high winds or heavy rain, so if you do have any problems you can be assured our Customer Service team will be on hand to sort out any queries. We always recommend that you secure your furniture in winter and if high winds are forecast as not only can the furniture become damaged but it also poses a danger for life and property.
All our garden furniture is sourced from the very best manufacturers and as such is expected to last an average of 15 years with moderate expected use, obviously if left to blow around the garden it will last considerably less than this term. Furniture covers are available for a lot of our furniture, but not all, and this will help extend it's lifespan.
Our garden furniture is designed to be outside in all weathers so you need not cover it or put it under cover, however covering with a dedicated cover will extend it's life. We have covers available for many of our sets which have the added bonus of being able to store table and chairs under one cover which prevents them from being blown around in high winds. If dedicated covers are not available put all the individual pieces together then cover with a breathable tarpaulin and secure tightly around the bottom with a length of rope. Make sure the cover is breathable, don't use plastic, as otherwise condensation can build which in turn will lead to the growth of moulds. It helps to place a broom handle through the hole in the centre of the table. We always recommend that parasols are folded and covered when not in use and put under cover when winds are forecast at any time of the year not just in winter, particularly important if it is one of the lighter models as they can become damaged and be a serious risk to life and property otherwise.

Garden furniture from Hayes is the best quality on the market, it uses the finest materials and is constructed to the highest standards and as such it requires practically no maintenance. If the timber furniture is left untreated it will gradually weather down to a soft patina or it can be treated with a garden furniture treatment to retain it's original colour. The metal and resin weave furniture only needs a quick wash down in spring with a mild washing-up liquid and warm water solution. If the metal furniture has become chipped just touch up with a dab of nail varnish or car spray paint. For more information please click here to read how to maintain your garden furniture.
