Why should I invest in teak garden furniture?

Our range of teak outdoor furniture will give you many, many years of comfort and pleasure, whether it be relaxing after a hard day at the office or entertaining friends and family.


Teak, also known as Tectona Grandis, is native to Southern Asia and is widely grown on plantations in tropical regions such as Asia, Africa and Latin America. Teak is a close grained and very dense wood which is high in natural oil content. This makes teak garden furniture extremely strong and durable. Teak is used in many industries including boat building and for the construction of indoor and outdoor teak furniture. Teak trees can take at least 25 years to become mature enough to be harvested and can live in excess of 80 years.


So what makes teak the best choice for outdoor garden furniture?


With its smooth grain and texture and its beautiful golden colour, we have no doubt that investing in teak garden furniture is absolutely the correct choice for your patio table and chair set, garden bench or Adirondack chair. As teak has an extremely high oil content, it can naturally protect itself against rotting and extreme weather conditions with little or no added protection, even in the glorious British weather! Teak is considered to be one of the best materials for garden furniture, being one of the strongest woods available and being extremely resistant to many external factors including weathering and rotting. Another benefit of teak is its resistance to insect infestation which again will protect your teak garden furniture for many years to come.


Whether you choose to leave your teak garden furniture outside all year round or have somewhere to store it, you can be assured that teak is the right choice for your outdoor garden furniture knowing that it will last for many years to come. For these reasons, we believe that choosing a teak garden bench, teak table and chair set or teak garden chair from Ottena really is a great choice!
