No Maintenance – Leave Outside in all 4 Seasons
No matter the weather (rain, snow or sun shine) this furniture will survive it unscathed.
- You don’t need to oil or cover it.
- You don’t need to store it inside.
- You don’t even have to wash it if you don’t want to!
Because the materials used have been specifically designed to resist the elements, giving you years of enjoyment of your garden furniture.
And that’s why weatherproof furniture has become the top selling variant in our garden centre, and online across the United Kingdom.
What types of weatherproof furniture can you buy?
There are 2 main types of weatherproof furniture that are available in the UK today, one for the traditionally minded, and one for those who like modern styles.
I’ll go over the 2 types below.
Wianwood furniture is made from compressing polystyrene to create a material that feels like wood with a real grain effect, but unlike wood requires no maintenance at all.
It comes in a range of benches, loveseats, and sets.
You can find out more about Winawood here.

Modern rattan furniture is made from a synthetic material, often called plastic wicker, which is woven around an aluminium frame to create weatherproof furniture sets that are lightweight and comfortable.
They come in a range of colours, including black, grey, brown and cream.
They can often be found as rocking arm chairs, sofa sets, and dining sets.
The brand we recommend is Majestique, and you can learn more about them here.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the more common queries in relation to this type of garden furniture and garden seating.
What is all weather? What does all weather mean?
All weather means that this furniture can be left outside “in all weathers”. It means it has been treated to withstand the elements, meaning you don’t need to store it, cover it, or maintain it.
Why choose all weather, isn’t it more expensive?
This is a common one, with people who don’t want to pay the slightly higher prices of all weather. In reality, it actually ends up saving you more money, because you don’t have to replace your set as early, and you don’t spend money or time (more valuable) maintaining it in the meantime.
If something isn’t in stock, can you order it in?
Yes this is an option, often we have a more limited range on our website, so simply call us on 01455 274748 for more information about other product types. You can also come and visit our garden centre where all sets are on display, simply Google “Sapcote Garden Centre” for directions.
What makes synthetic rattan furniture all weather?
This is an interesting one, and refers to both the material used to hand weave the furniture, and the frame. The frame is made from aluminium, which physically cannot rust, ensuring that your set is protected in the snow, ice and rain. The rattan strands have been UV stabilized, which is a process to protect them from the UV rays of the run, preventing it fading or becoming brittle when left outside.
