There’s an abundance of garden furniture available on the market, whether it be in your local garden centre, at a hardware chain store or from an online retailer. Many of these brands are available to buy at a reasonable price point, but in a world where we’ve become a throwaway society, the cheapest option isn’t always the best if we have to bin it in a year or two and buy a new one.

At GardenSite we don’t like waste, that’s why we’re committed to continually improving our green policy. The majority of our timber garden furniture comes with a 10-15 year guarantee against rot, or a minimum expected lifespan of 10-years. Our metal and rattan garden furniture is crafted to last just as long, if not longer, and our stone garden furniture, especially those made from natural rock can last for a lifetime if cared for, with minimal maintenance required. So you can be assured that any of our garden furniture brands are made to last, letting you get your money's worth.

However - some brands of garden furniture are better than others, from the materials used to the way they're crafted, and so in this garden furniture review, we’re going to be focussing on Barlow Tyrie - known in the industry as one of, if not the best, garden furniture crafters in the world. Being in business for over 100 years, Barlow Tyrie could also be considered the oldest manufacturer of teak garden furniture, and most importantly, one of the world’s best brands within the product niche. They regularly win awards and their brand represents the highest standards of both quality and service. Although being established for so long, their methods and designs are not all traditional, as many of the ranges combine classic aspects with modern mechanics, materials and design - ensuring only the best quality and most eye-catching designs that anyone would be proud to own.

As a brand, Barlow Tyrie offers a wide and complex product range, mainly due to the fact that each chair, table, bench and sunbed is purchasable by itself, rather than in an officially matched set. This can sometimes lead to customers feeling overwhelmed by the sheer number of options, combinations and customisations available when trying to pick out a matching set of outdoor furniture for their garden. However, this is where we come in to lend a hand, with our expert knowledge and our own hand-picked arrangements of over 30 Barlow Tyrie dining sets ready to buy on one page so you can start to see the wood for the trees a lot easier.

Out of all 30, below are our top 5 best selling Barlow Tyrie sets reviewed. We hope you put your sunnies on now and like what you see.
