Outdoor redwood furniture comes in a wide variety of styles and sizes. While it’s more expensive than most furniture for the patio, redwood outdoor furniture can last a lifetime if it’s well cared for. Because insects don’t like redwood, redwood furniture is not subject to their destruction. The wood itself is not prone to rot or other problems common to ordinary wood.
Whether you’re looking for furniture for your restaurant patio or deck furniture for your poolside, you can find all sorts of redwood garden furniture. From redwood patio chairs and redwood outdoor tables to complex redwood furniture seating groups, you have many choices available. And of all the outdoor patio furniture on the market, redwood lawn furniture is certainly the classiest.
Redwood patio furniture comes with three common grades. The type of wood you choose can greatly affect the price of the redwood outdoor furniture. The three grade levels of redwood furniture are:
1. New growth, or young redwood, furniture comes from trees less than 50 years old.
2. Mature redwood furniture comes from trees between 50 and 200 years.
3. Old growth redwood furniture comes from trees over 200 years old.
Find redwood patio furniture chairsIf possible, sit in the chairs to see how comfortable they are. Redwood furniture cushions are available for some chairs and can make them more comfortable. You can find redwood furniture chairs sold separately or as sets.
Locate unique redwood furniture seatingWhether you are looking for tête-à-tête chairs or loungers, there are a lot of options on the market. If you have someone on staff that does carpentry projects, you can have the furniture made locally and save on shipping costs.
Set redwood furniture benches in your garden and beside your poolBecause redwood blends in to the natural setting so easily, redwood benches are an excellent choice to tuck away in a flower garden to allow extra seating for your restaurant guests while they wait for indoor seating. Because redwood furniture is impervious to water, redwood benches are an excellent choice both beside the pool and inside the pool house near the showers.
- Clean your redwood furniture each spring by hosing it down. You don't need to use chemicals. It's normal for the redwood furniture to take on a silver color over time. Use a power washer to restore the redwood patio furniture's natural red color if you wish, or let it remain silver colored.
