The ancient Pompeii included garden furniture as part of its culture, with artifacts dating back to the 8th century found in the ruins of the volcano. The contribution of this ancient society to outdoor furniture lives in many modern families that now include these sets as part of their backdrops.
Sometimes referred to as garden furniture, patio pieces will include a table, four to six chairs, sometimes a parasol for the table and, increasingly, a fireplace or an outdoor stove. People wishing to furnish their backyard areas can find these items in the garden departments of many large retailers of boxes and home improvement stores, as well as in specialty stores that sell gardening, gardening equipment, and barbecues. Some sports stores also sell these sets.
A person could furnish his outdoor area with several chairs, a table, a parasol for the table and even a fireplace, or an outdoor stove. Chymenes are commonly made of clay or metal and can burn wood or coal. People also choose to burn scented wood that smells like cinnamon, vanilla or other aromas if they want to add an additional element of attraction to their meeting. Fireplaces can also heat people with their heat. The stoves are made of conductive materials that allow them to transmit heat into the surrounding area.
As these sets are typically exposed to the elements, they are made of weather-resistant materials such as wood, PVC, vinyl, teak, polyester, bamboo, resin, wrought iron or aluminum.
These materials are appreciated for their resistance to rain, hail, wind and snow. However, an owner must occasionally treat his or her set with sprays or transparencies to prevent them from losing protection from the elements. Treatments may include silica, which is a common material to be applied to pieces made of vinyl, PVC or resin.
Owners must also control chairs, tables and other items for wear and damage. Loose cracks, ropes or screws and even cracks must be repaired if he or she wants to continue using the furniture. The cracks can be repaired with the glue, the umbrellas can be threaded back with a new rope, the chairs can be woven with new materials if they are made of strips of materials and the nails loose in the tables and chairs must be replaced or tightened . The broken glass on the table top should be thrown away and replaced so that nobody is cut.
During the winter, a person can store his own set in the basement or in a warehouse. Any place that is dry and relatively cool is ideal for storing furniture. Do not allow the water to remain on or under the pieces to prevent decomposition. A person can cover the furniture with plastic or cloth for additional protection against dust and water. The pieces must be folded correctly so that no damage comes to the legs of the table or chair.
Chairs, tables, umbrellas and fireplaces usually make up the garden furniture sets. They are a popular choice for people who want to sit outside to eat or host parties or simply to enjoy their construction sites. Waterproofing, properly storing and repairing these items will ensure that the owner can enjoy them for several years.
