What Does your Garden Furniture Say About You?

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

What a wonderful weekend of weather we have had.  The sun has been shining, our windows have been open and all across the country we have been rediscovering our outside spaces.  We have recently been looking for garden furniture and it got me thinking, what does your garden furniture say about you?  Unlike in the past where you had a couple of deck chairs and your were good to go, now we really look at designing our outside spaces to reflect our style and lifestyle.  No matter what your budget there are an array of choices to express yourself.
