Outdoor furniture supplement the beauty and elegance of your home garden.
Being a natural product, wood is considered to be the best material for
constructing garden furniture. Since most timbers are not resistant to
adverse weather conditions and insects, utmost care should be taken to
stretch their lastingness. Here comes the prominence of teak wood as the
ideal wood for making patio furniture. Teak is one of the best, long-
lasting and strong materials used for indoor and outdoor furniture. Some
of the specialties of teak as the most suitable wood for outdoor
furniture, are given below.

1) Teak wood is good-looking, smooth, sturdy and durable.

2) It is resistant to bad weather and insects. A garden bench made of
teak is capable of withstanding rain and sunlight for several years even
without periodic maintenance.

3) Unlike furniture made of other materials, teak furniture don't require
artificial polishing or oiling.

4) Teak wood is rich with silica and natural oil content that make it
resistant to all kinds of insects.

5) Teak is very suitable for structural works and carved designs for its
sturdiness, elasticity and ease of use.

6) Teak wood does not get rotted or splintered even if it remains in
contact with metals like iron for years due to the presence of silica and
oil content.

7) The denseness of teak, together with its other qualities, makes it the
favorite wood of shipbuilders throughout the world.
8) Because of its stylish design with clean lines, teak wood stands out
among all timbers.

9) Cleaning and maintaining teak furniture is pretty easy.

The Teak tree is classed as Tectona Grandis and it belongs to the family
Verbenaceae. One of the reasons for the high cost of teak is that it
takes approximately 50 to 60 years to complete its physical growth.
Despite its high cost and difficulty to acquire, teak is still the
preferred wood for making high quality furniture, doors, windows etc.
Although teak wood is immune to heat and humidity and resistant to
insects, timely cleaning and maintenance will definitely prolong its
life. The high cost and scarcity of teak have slowly given rise to the
use of other hardwoods like African oak and mahogany in its place. But
none of them matches the quality of teak.
