Building a Better Garden with Wicker Furniture

If you are looking into getting wicker furniture for your garden as the final touch, then you are looking into a great idea!  Wicker furniture sets come in so many different colors, choices, and finishes, and you could easily find something that works for you and for your garden. 

If you have a large garden, and plan to invite over a lot of people to help you enjoy it, then something like several wicker sofa may be good to look into, whereas if you have a smaller, quainter, garden, then you may want to go for two chairs and a small wicker table.  It is important to keep in mind when buying wicker for outdoor use you need to get wicker than has been stained, preferably with resin or another type of water resistant sealant. 

Resin works well to prevent molding or break down of the quality of your wicker furniture, so that it can be exposed to the elements and you won’t have to worry about it coming unraveled, or having to cover it or bring it into the garage.  This type of wicker is also very strong, and doesn’t often need any type of cushioning because the resin covers most sharp pieces of wood and snares so that you don’t have to worry about splinters or anything poking you when you sit down.  Resin is also a beautiful amber color that looks good in most natural – and manmade settings.
