Durability of bamboo garden furniture

When you need new garden furniture, there are three factors that are important: aesthetics, comfort and durability. Bamboo garden furniture comes to the fore in garden furniture ranges all over the world, and they are gradually also found in a wide range of Danish gardens. Perhaps you have been told that you should choose bamboo because it is particularly durable – but is that really correct?

Bamboo is not a tree in the same sense as we normally know it. Of course, there are stems where leaves and branches grow, but bamboo is hollow, and the trunk does not get wider as the tree ages. Bamboo has an extremely sustainable growth, and it is often this that is alluded to when bamboo's long shelf life is mentioned.

Felled and untreated bamboo poles are not particularly durable, but if the bamboo furniture is properly pre-treated, it can have a lifespan of up to 50 years. Regardless, you can't avoid ongoing maintenance, which is the alpha and omega if you want to preserve your bamboo garden furniture season after season.

Maintain your bamboo furniture

At NorthByNorth we always make furniture of the highest quality so that you can have it for a long time. In doing so, we also make sure to process all our bamboo furniture so that no living organisms can survive in the wood, and they get the longest possible durability.

The Danish weather is fickle, and it can be difficult to accommodate! It is therefore important that you regularly wipe down your garden furniture, and in addition you should clean your furniture properly at least twice a year with a wrung-out cloth in soapy water. In winter, the optimal scenario is that you store them indoors in a dry place with good ventilation. If you don't have the opportunity to do this, you can simply cover the furniture loosely.

Bamboo – rustic and durable material

There is no doubt that bamboo is a rustic and durable material compared to other types of wood. It is also one of the reasons why we enjoy making bamboo furniture here at NorthByNorth. Our products are designed and developed by Danish cabinetmakers and are then handmade in a sustainable way. It is important to us that we can sell our products at a fair price, and you can get many of our bamboo furniture as much as 40% cheaper than elsewhere. See the large selection here
