The one and only online garden camping community in the world

campinmygarden.com is the first and only website advertising private gardens as micro campsites. It was launched in April 2011 with an open invitation to all.

As a member of the community everyone is able to advertise his own garden as a campsite or book accommodation in other community gardens. The offered gardens vary in standard from “bumping” (basic camping) to “glamping” (glamorous camping).

And if you are looking for some fancy tents, visit FieldCandy, the exciting design-led brand for tents. Created by designers such as David Bowie artwork creator Terry Pastor, graphic designer Jonathan Zawada, art director Luke Bonner, and Illustrators Emma Bennett and John Wilhelm, each tent is limited to a few hundred and then deleted to ensure exclusivity. The tents come along with extra strong pegs, heavy duty zips and lockable storage pouches. FieldCandy tents are designed for extreme performance activities as well as festivals and more sedate camping trips. And you needn’t faff around buying extras because each tent comes with combination padlocks, a hammer, tent peg puller and indestructible instructions. You even get a grass-scented sachet to get you in the outdoor mood. Good weather not included.

Manutti: Outdoor Furniture for the Smaller Design Fans

Outdoor living und play: the days are now gone when children have to be content with garish plastic chairs in the garden at home, hotels or restaurants. Belgian outdoor furniture manufacturer Manutti has decided that the youngsters deserve better, with the exclusive Kiddy Collection.

The collection is derived from the company’s adult armchair and chair designs, but adapted and optimised to the size and weight requirements of smaller children. The Kiddy Collection is built to the same high quality standard in weather-resistant materials; the seats not only withstand the worst that wind and weather can do, but also the punishment meted out by children romping on the terrace, in the garden or bedroom.

The range of comfortable children’s armchairs and chairs is derived from the Mood, Atlanta, San Diego and Orlando product lines, and available in up to eight different colours.

VDM Survey: The Materials of Choice for Outdoor Furniture?

People continue to invest ever-larger sums of money in their gardens, balconies and terraces. For which reason the VDM Association of German Furniture Manufacturers wanted to find out what materials have the greatest market share in the construction of outdoor furniture. Recent research by the VDM showed that at present 35 percent of German Garden furniture is made of wood – with the trend continuing upwards.

Wood is a natural and renewable resource, and increasingly popular with customers. Not far behind, about 30 percent of outdoor furniture is made of plastic, including the highly popular and robust basket-woven fibre products. The ‘smallest’ main materials sector is that for metal furniture.

Of course, all three materials are often found in combination with each other, together with other materials such as stone and glass. The survey also included mention of other materials making up less than ten percent, such as rattan, cork and textiles.
