Garden Furniture UK Release Brand New Range of Winawood Benches

You may have heard of this new type of weatherproof furniture going around, a new composite material that both looks and feels like a wooden seat, but is however durable to all weather conditions.

What is Winawood?

Winawood furniture is a compressed plastic material that’s put under pressure to create a polymer of grain effects that gives the feel of real wood. It comes in a range of colours and styles, in benches, love seats and sets. It can be purchased online, or in a local retailer.

We’ve found the UK online retailer Garden Furniture UK to stock a very useful range of this Winawood furniture, in which they provide ample colour choice and UK home delivery as standard.

They provide some more useful information on Winawood on the following video:

Here you can see some of the benefits of choosing Winawood over hardwood are:

  • You don’t have to teak oil it
  • You don’t have to buy a cover
  • You don’t have to take it inside during the winter

It also comes with a 2 year warranty, which I’ve been informed automatically activates when you purchase it.

I recommend you investigate their reputation on your own, but from the selection of Sandwick benches they have available I would suggest they are among the top 3 in the UK right now.

There have been various press mentions about Winawood in the news recently, including:

Gardening in the 21st Century – An Expert Guide

Things have changed a lot in the last 100 years in regards to horticulture techniques and technologies. That’s why I will be going over the best way to do gardening in the 21st century, taking into account new techniques and old classics that will help you on your way to becoming a proficient gardeners.

Part 1: Planting Borders – Bedding and Perennials

One of the main things that hasn’t changed a whole lot is the type of plants you tend to see here in the UK. When planting borders, you should look for a mix of perennials and bedding plants, to provide you stunning colour, with consistent foliage throughout the year. Adding a variety of evergreen plants can also keep your borders looking good at all times, along with well positioning bulbs to add colour in spring and autumn.

Part 2: Decoration & Structure – Furniture and Furnishings

We all know the importance of a well laid out structure in your garden. It’s hard to differ from the classic style of path, patio and border, but if you can get creative, there are some modern contemporary styles that can really add a wow factor to your garden.

You can add tiered fencing, to split your garden into visually different sections. You can also use trailing plants, and tall trees to separate the sections, but these can get more expensive. There is also an added benefit of testing out different types of plants in these areas.

You can furnish your garden in various ways, but I recommend choosing some sort of burner or chimnea, and using that as a centre point, then browsing online for garden furniture that can go around this, such as a corner sofa set or modular rattan set, both available at shops such as, who are very highly recommended. These work especially well as they are both pieces of weatherproof furniture, which means you can leave them outside without the need to store or cover them.

Part 3: Maintaining and Growing

Any serious gardener worth their salt should be looking to constantly improve their garden, and also to start growing their own plants from cuttings. This is not only very rewarding, but a great money saving endeavor too! You can start by taking cuttings of your favourite plants, and storing them in compost in your greenhouse. These garden structures are great for doing garden maintenance, especially in the cold winter months.
