Types of Furniture
There are different ways to care for your outdoor furniture depending on the material that it is made of. For example, wicker or wood furniture is beautiful and rustic but unfortunately the feet are quick to suffer from mildew and rot due to damp grounds. You don't want to spend a lot of money on your outdoor paradise only to have it get destroyed by the outdoor weather.
Metal Furniture seems like it would be the most durable and while in many ways it is. The metal legs have the greatest ability to scratch and chip your patio. So your newly paved patio or your wooden deck could have dents or scratches.
