Moveable furniture can change up your yard!


You will love the fact that this furniture appeals to your sense of adventure and will change things up to keep your lives exciting and new. It can be easily moved around and can create different moods or entertaining areas.

1 -Date Night with your Partner

Find the spot where you can see the moonlight or sunset, place the chairs accordingly, grab a lovely bottle of wine, some bread and cheese, some music to suit the mood and presto! you have a date night for 2.

2 - Sitting by the Pool

You will love to sit beside the pool especially these winter days when the sun is so wonderfully warm in the afternoon. You can sit and chat about whatever is going on in your world or with your families. You can easily move it around the yard and chase the sun on these days. Equally, in the summer, you can chase the shade.

Sit by the pool!


3 - By the Pond

Sitting by the pond is a lovely place to go when things are a little stressed. The sound of water flowing out of the fountain is calming, relaxing and soothing all at the same time. If you don't have a pond you can easily construct one. By going to hgtv, then searching for pond in a pot, you can get instructions on how to build one. Fill it with water, obtain a water plant and make sure you put it in a sunny spot on the patio or deck area. You can also purchase a small pump from the hardware store and set in on bricks within the pot to give you that sound of moving water. Now you also have a spot for relaxation.

4 - The Rock Garden

This is a great spot to watch any living things that crawl in your garden. It is great for observing what is going on in the garden with the plants and flowers. Take a cup of tea or coffee and watch life. Check out your plants at the same time. You might even discover what is eating them.

5 - Star Gazing

Because this table and chairs is so moveable you can follow the sky from your chair. Venus moves season to season, the moon changes every night. Some of the best debates have been sorted out under a starry sky.
