You actually can’t varnish wood furniture every year. Therefore, you should opt for a maintenance-free material.
Light yet tough furniture
Buy sturdier furniture and make sure that it should stand on the grass unlike steel furniture that would easily sink into ground damaging grass. So, it should be light yet tough.

Today it is common to buy outdoor furniture online and it’s also easy to compare prices and perhaps find a lower price. But just as with the other furniture it is best to try it outdoors before purchase. Comfort, fabric quality and stability can be difficult to judge from a picture.
Storing outdoor furniture
Remember that you must have place to store your winter outdoor furniture. Do not buy too large and bulky furniture if you do not have large storage facilities. Folding chairs and tables are often preferred in view of storage.
Protect your outdoor furniture
Lounge furniture, sofas and armchairs are best protected with coatings. Different kinds of boxes for storage of cushions are available. Rattan withstands weather well (choose a variety that is recyclable), but should be stored under a tarpaulin in the winter. Maintain the furniture so they last for a long time. Wash and treat your garden furniture with environmental friendly preparations so they last many seasons.
