Teak is one of the most sought after wood species in the world, renowned for its strength, durability and beautiful appearance.
Teak ages beautifully with the original golden-brown colour gradually becoming replaced by a silver-grey patina if left untreated, which gives a classic, rustic appearance. This generally begins to happen after 4-5 months without treatment. If left untreated for 2 years, the silver-grey patina will change to a dark grey or green colour.
LifestyleGarden® only uses teak that is FSC™ certified - timber is grown in responsibly managed plantations or has been sourced and recycled from components and structures on the island of Java.
The wood originates from barns, houses, railway sleepers and other constructions. The wood is bought from the original sources before it is brushed, cleaned and repaired to give it a beautiful, rustic appearance.
