How do we compare?

There is a multitude of choice when it comes to buying garden furniture. Like most things in life, you will get what you pay for. The cheapest online suppliers will sell light weight furniture made from aluminium tubing. The guarantee will probably only be a couple of years and the life span fairly short. The cushions and parasols will be basic and probably not last more than a season. If your purchasing decision is purely price led, then you will probably buy from one of these suppliers.  However, if you would prefer to purchase a quality product that is robust and durable and will stand up to the elements of the Brtish weather, then you may prefer to spend a little bit more and order cast aluminium garden furniture that will last.

We fall into the second of the above categories. We do not pretend nor try to be the cheapest online, but we do believe that we offer the best value. When comparing our products to other companies, look at the range and prices from companies such as Hartman and Bramblecrest. They offer a similar quality product with a good length guarantee.  We will happily price match any quotation received from either of these two companies.

Did Doris take your garden furniture with her?

Storm Doris was certainly a test for the durability and sturdiness of any garden furniture. Did yours blow away, get damaged or simply disappear altogether?. Reports of light weight and flimsy tables and chairs flying over Manchester were widespread. 

I can confirm, however, that there was no cast aluminium furniture from Four Seasons flying across the skies or embedded into the hedge at the bottom of the street.  Testament to the durability of our products, our furniture stood firm and was not in the least bit troubled by Doris. The added weight and rigidity of our furniture proved invaluable yesterday.

Storm Ewan could be just around the corner so make sure that your garden furniture can resist her. Choose Four Seasons cast aluminium garden furniture. Strong, Robust, Durable and Doris proof.

The use of garden furniture

There is an incredible amount of garden furniture available from retailers. For most homeowners plastic garden furniture has become a cost-effective alternative because this furniture can be obtained rather cheaply and likewise they can be replaced just as easily. The problem is when that furniture is left in the sun and weather 24 hours a day they can deteriorate quite drastically requiring frequent replacements in order to ensure good looking furniture. Likewise other options such as wood furniture is another attractive option but this method requires frequent maintenance in order to ensure that the wood is well protected from the elements. Many people are now looking into cast aluminium garden furniture because this is a more permanent option. This kind of furniture is light weight and can be easily moved around if the need arises, but still it is heavy enough not to be affected by strong wind. This furniture is incredibly strong and will not break easily and it will continue to look good year in and year out.

Good for all seasons
