There are many woods used to make garden furniture including teak, eucalyptus, oak, acacia, pine, cedar etc. One important consideration is that you choose furniture that is FSC certified, meaning that it is sourced from legally managed and renewable forests and this should be stated on the website, for example EW Garden Furniture. The finest and most expensive wood is teak and eucalyptus which both have similar characteristics and qualities. They are extremely dense, naturally oily and require little treatment. Next up are the hardwoods such as acacia which is renowned for its durability and strength as well as warmth and natural beauty. When choosing hardwood garden furniture it is important that the timber undergoes a controlled kiln-drying process and this should also be stated on the website.
