Garden Furniture Covers

The majority of us like to protect our garden furniture through the harsh winter months, after all it’s not a cheap purchase and it makes sense to make it last as long as possible. We stock a wide range of good quality breathable covers, which prevents condensation building up which in turn causes moulds. Many of the major manufacturers make covers specifically for their own furniture, single chairs, tables, benches, swing seats, parasols, barbecues and whole sets. If you are unsure which cover you need please don’t hesitate to call our sales team who will be happy to advise. Covering a whole set with one cover not only protects it from the weather but also stops it blowing around if there is a strong wind. Strictly speaking our furniture is constructed to cope with the wind and rain so you only need a cover to protect from bird droppings, falling leaves and sap.

Ian Hodgett
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

All our outdoor garden furniture. is completely weatherproof, however using a dedicated cover will extend it's life span. If your furniture is situated under trees or on the bird's flightpath then a furniture cover is a must.
No, if the cover is completely waterproof condensation can build up which in time can lead to the growth of moulds which is why you should never use plastic sheeting.
If you want to cover your furniture and dedicated covers are not available just use a breathable tarpaulin.
Before you cover your furniture place a broom handle through the hole in the table or use an upside down bucket and this will allow the rain to run off before penetrating the cover.

Garden Furniture Cover Buyers Guide

Hayes have been retailing premium quality garden furniture covers for decades sourced by our buyers Keith Laird and Ian Hodgett, who have over 60 years experience between them. They are well aware of the standards our customers expect and as such only source products from the best garden furniture manufacturers such a Bramblecrest, Alexander Rose and Barlow Tyrie. All our outdoor garden furniture is built to withstand any weather and is expected to last at least 15 years but using a dedicated breathable furniture cover will extend the lifespan of your furniture. Don’t use plastic sheeting to cover your garden furniture as this just gathers condensation which encourages the growth of mould.  

All our garden furniture is weatherproof so strictly speaking it doesn’t need covering however a furniture cover will extend it’s lifespan and prevent winter dirt getting into the resin weave.

If you are on the flight path of birds or the furniture is sited underneath trees then covers are absolutely essential. Some of the covers completely enclose the table and chairs under one cover which has the advantage of securing the set in high winds preventing the chairs being blown around and becoming damaged, or even worse being a danger to life and property.

The covers are not completely waterproof as they need to be breathable otherwise condensation can gather which in turn leads to the growth of mould. We recommend that you place a broom handle through the hole in the table or place an upturned bucket on the table before covering as this prevents the rain pooling on the surface.
