What is Winawood Made From?
Winawood is a polymer made from compacted plastics and polystyrene to give the appearance of real wood, but without any of the warping or rotting associated with a natural material. It’s formed into blocks and assembled into pieces for garden furniture, sold to the UK mainly in a range of benches, dining sets, chairs and tables.
Is there a Guarantee With Winawood?
Yes there is a 2 year guarantee on the furniture provided by the manufacturer. It is automatically activated when you purchase.

All Weather Garden Furniture
When choosing garden furniture, it’s usually more cost effective to spend a little more, and go for an all weather / weatherproof option, as these tend to last a lot longer, and so you actually get a lot more wear out of your money.
They come in a range of materials and styles, including:
- Winawood (mentioned above)
- All weather rattan furniture
- All weather aluminium furniture
The rattan tends to be UV stabilised, and so will not break down or fade due to the suns UV rays, which is an added bonus. They all have their benefits, it really depends on your personal preference and budget.
All Weather Benches
All weather benches are a great option for a durable garden seating area. They allow you to still have that traditional bench, but without the constant maintenance that you’d have with a keruing wooden bench. The best all weather bench is the Winawood 3 seater sandwick bench in Teak, which looks fantastic and has plenty of room for 3 people to sit comfortably.
