Wonderful weather is the best time to get out and see what changes, upgrades and improvements to your outdoor space. We have put together all the top secrets about the best time to buy your garden furniture.


As you may know, the summertime is when people make use of their spaces the most. Once we start getting the sunshine in late spring, many people will begin patio renovations and if you leave your purchasing till late you may end up not getting any furniture for your space.  Many of these retailers are usually sold out by mid summer or have limited stocks which means you will not be able to have variety for you to include in your space. Most people usually start their pre ordering for the summer in mid March as the weather starts to look promising then.


Most of our products are in our core ranges such as Oxford and Yale while we are adding more ranges such as our Revive range every year to suit the needs of our customers. These core ranges come in bistro sets, 4 seaters, 6 seaters, 8 seaters, corner and cube sets. We would always recommend when purchasing for your spaces it is always nice to have pieces from the same range. Due to the popularity of a product, it might sometimes sell out but we always do our best to let customers know when this out will be back in stock.

Waiting times and Delivery

Most of our garden furniture at Rathwood is available for pre-order which is usually approximately six to eight weeks from the order date. We try our best to secure as much stock as we can from the supplier for the summer season so that we can keep all our customers happy. Once your items have arrived in our warehouse, it can take 7 – 14 working days for delivery as we are working through high volumes of deliveries.

Our expert advice would be to start ordering your garden furniture and outdoor pieces from early March to avoid disappointment. If you are unsure or have any questions about purchasing furniture or delivery time, you can contact us on 059 91 56285 or email us on furniture@rathwood.com.
