With autumn upon us and the weather turning increasingly wet and windy, Martyn Loach thinks that you should be using covers to protect garden furniture.
Now that the summer has passed and you can no longer enjoy using chairs, tables and other items of garden furniture and equipment, it makes sense to protect them from damaging effects of rain, frost and snow..
Bosmere are the leading manufacturers of garden furniture covers. Their Cover Up and Protector covers are particularly suited to winter conditions but are designed to give protection throughout the year.
The Bosmere Cover Up range is totally waterproof and the UV stabilised polyester is backed with top quality PVC.
Particularly suitable for hardwood furniture, Bosmere Premier covers use the finest 300 denier breathable polyester, again UV stabilised, and this time double stitched. Heavy duty binding also ensures a longer life.
All the covers have an easy clean surface, brass coated eyelets, heavy duty ties and cord locks.
Four and up to ten seater patio sets are catered for and the package will include a watershedding pole. There are also covers for rectangular and square tables.
Bosmere has covers for picnic tables, single chairs and even 'conversation' type garden seats. Sunloungers can be protected, reclining chairs, hammocks and swing chairs. There are covers designed specifically for cushions and for different parasols, even the giant sized ones.
One of the most expensive garden items will be your barbecue and there are covers for all types from kettle to the larger gourmet models.
Bosmere haven't forgotten about the increasingly popular rattan and modular furniture, with covers for coffee tables as well as all sizes of corner units and sofas.
It makes perfect sense to prevent your furniture deteriorating due to bad weather, and the full range of Bosemere covers can be seen on GardenSite.co.uk.
