Garden furniture not only provides comfortable seating but they also add aesthetic appeal to your house, and are reflective of your style. If you are in South Africa, you certainly cannot avoid the outdoors as most people have a backyard or garden where they entertain their friends and family. Irrespective of the size and style, there are some furniture types that shall never go out of fashion. Here are some of them:
Wooden Garden Furniture: Wood was once a popular choice for furniture until it was replaced by cheaper varieties. But for those who prefer to add some style and elegance to their patio, this is undoubtedly the best choice. Cedar, teak, and mahogany are popular choice for wooden furniture. Although they need maintenance, it is minimal. In fact, teak furniture is so impervious to weather that it is often left out in the open all year long with little care and maintenance. The wood does give out a silver gray shade, but this adds to its appeal.
Wrought Iron: Wrought iron furniture is ideal for a patio that is designed in a contemporary style. They are durable and strong, but need maintenance to ensure that they are weather resistant. You can choose from a wide variety of chairs, loungers, and tables that are made using wrought iron. The downside to using this is probably the expense involved. They are known to be more expensive than wooden patio furniture. Regular maintenance also adds to its expense.
Aluminum: Aluminum is light weight, durable and does not rust. But they arenaE™t preferred for gardens when style is a consideration. Besides, if you live in an area that is exposed to high winds, aluminum isnaE™t the right choice. High quality powder coated aluminum is a better choice as the furniture is scratch resistant and also adds a high gloss effect. But the cost of these is high.
Plastic: This is undoubtedly the most common choice for people looking for some cheap alternatives. Typical plastic furniture is made using polypropylene or polyethylene. Furnitures in the higher range include fiberglass strands to strengthen designs. The problem with these is that of cleaning. Plastic surfaces have dimpled surfaces that are difficult to clean. Over time they lose their sheen unlike wooden garden furniture that are known to look classy as they age. Aesthetics can also be a problem. Even though plastic furniture is available in a wide variety of designs, at the end of the day, it is plastic. But if you are someone who would want to change the look of your patio every year this is the best choice.
These are just some of the choice available. Besides the ones mentioned above, you can also choose from sling, fiberglass, and even concrete.

Modern family gardens need to be multi-purpose and should accommodate the needs of adults, children and the plants, a large garden area is easier to design for obvious reasons, the more room the more choice of furniture (sizes) and the wider range of plants etc, the smaller area needs careful planning depending on the use of the area and what furniture you require.
If you entertain a lot then a seating area and a possible barbecue or fire pit arrangement may be the priority, if it is a family area and young children are involved then safety will be the priority with the play area for the children to enjoy in a secure environment. The type of furniture is also determined by the use it will have, if you use the garden often then comfort is a must, if you enjoy eating your meals outside the garden furniture you choose should be suitable for serving meals on, the number of people you may invite on a regular basis will effect the choice, (if it is just the two of you a two-seater bistro set would be ideal) also the area of the garden in which the furniture is to be placed needs to be considered, such as on the grass, in the shade or even on a patio, and finally it must suit your own tastes, you will have to see it daily so there is no point in buying something that you are not sure about and will not be happy with.
