Frequently Asked Questions

The furniture can take as much or as little as you like; left without any maintenance it will weather down to a soft silvery grey. If you want to keep thenew rich colour it will have to be treated with the appropiate treatment every 2 - 3 years. If the furniture is situated in cool shade it will accumulate algae which has to be washed off or else place the furniture somewhere sunny.
Our furniture is not at the budget end of the scale as it is constructed to the highest standards using the best available timber sourced from sustainably managed forests. These forests are managed to benefit the local population and the environment and as such take much more manpower than a commercial monoculture plantation. This manpower naturally costs more but you do have the satisfaction that you are helping people less fortunate than yourself and doing minimal damage to the environment.
This entirely depends upon the furniture chosen; some come completely assembled however the majority of the benches come flat pack unless otherwise stated. If you would like more information please just call our Customer Services team.  
Yes, all our furniture carries at least 12 months warranty with some designs having 2 years. This warranty does not cover any damage sustained as a result of adverse weather conditions only problems arising from defective materials or construction. Your guarantee is with ourselves so you do not need to negotiate with suppliers, just call our Customer Services team if you do encounter any problems..

Hardwood Garden Furniture Buyes Guide

Hardwood garden furniture is ideal for the traditionalists who love the classic English garden. There are many sets available from the luxury 2 seat swivel set which is luxuriously padded and would suit a more contemporary style outdoor space to the classic picnic table and benches. All our outdoor garden furniture is sourced by our experienced buyers Keith Laird and Ian Hodgett who have around 60 years experience in the garden leisure sector. All of this experience has been gained at Hayes so they have an extremely good knowledge of  our customers likes and dislikes. As one of the largest retailers of garden furniture in the UK we are able to negotiate extremely competitive prices with our suppliers which we are able pass on to our customers. Norfolk Leisure and Riverco Redwood are just a couple of our trusted, well established suppliers.

As a general rule timber furniture can be maintenance free or you can treat it with a timber treatment every 2 - 3 years to keep the new look. If you don’t treat the wood it will just gradually weather down to a natural soft patina. The exception to this is the painted garden furniture which will need re-painting every 4 - 5 years.

All our garden furniture is sourced from the best manufacturers and as such is not the cheapest on the market, however it will last many years longer as it is built to a robust construction using the best quality materials.

Yes, all our garden furniture is guaranteed for one year by the manufacturer, with many styles having an extra 1 year warranty from ourselves. The guarantee covers defective materials and manufacture but if the furniture becomes damaged by being blown around in a storm then unfortunately it is not covered. We strongly recommend if there are storms or high winds forecast then the furniture is secured either by taking into a garage or by stacking all the pieces together and tying down.

All our timber is sourced from sustainably managed forests for the benefit of local communities with new trees planted for every tree felled. Far less chemicals and processes requiring energy are used in the production of timber furniture than those sets which use synthetic materials.
