Ready For Spring

5 Ways to Get Your Backyard Ready For Spring Outdoor Living

Alas! Springtime is finally here, and that means it’s time to get your backyard and patio ready for late night cocktail gatherings, soaking up the sun in your lounger, and BBQ’s with the family. Here’s how you can start to get ready to have some fun in the sun!

  1. Survey Any Damage That May Have Occurred During the Winter.
    Is there any molding on your deck? Cracks in the concrete? Does your deck need to be resealed? If so, now’s the time!
  2. Give Those Bushes a Haircut!
    Trim and cut any out of control garden bed. Trimming will help keep trees and shrubs nice and compact. If you want to add a tropical vibe this spring, add some bamboo to your backyard.
  3. Add An Outdoor Heating Source
    It still remains pretty chilly when the sun goes down, so in order to remain an all-year round outdoor entertainer provide heat for your guests such as an outdoor fire pit.
  4. Give the BBQ A Power Clean
    It’s about that time to throw some shrimp on the barby! Start the barbeque season off right, with a clean shiny grill.
  5. Plan For Your Outdoor Furniture Space
    It might be time to replace your outdoor furniture. Maybe yours is worn out or maybe you’re looking for a fresh look this spring. Either way, take a look at the dimensions and plan for your new patio set!

What Type of Furniture is Best For Your Climate

What Type of Outdoor Patio Furniture is Best for Your Climate?

As we enter the fall season, a common concern for homeowners is outdoor patio furniture that can sustains in various year round climates.

In Front Range Colorado, high winds coming off the mountains is common for local homeowners. But in the U.S. and overseas, All Backyard Fun often has customers asking questions like, “I live in a pretty windy area, is this chair going to blow away?” or “I live on the east coast and the summers are brutally humid, how will this material hold up in such a climate?” It’s true, different types of outdoor furniture will hold up in certain climates better than others. Here’s the best type of furniture to buy based on your climate.

HOT AND HUMID?

If you live in a hot and humid area, a great option to go with is cast aluminum patio furniture. This type of material is rust proof which won’t let the humidity take a toll, leaving you with years and years of use. In addition, cast aluminum furniture is best known for its elaborate and intricate styles, so you can have a quite an eloquent design. One of our favorite cast aluminum products is the Sonata High Back Dining Chair from Windward. The Sonata features a sophisticated rolled arm design, and has extra padding for extreme comfort!

WHERE THE WIND BLOWS?

If you live in a windy area, and you’re worried about your patio furniture blowing away, fear not! A good option for windy city dwellers is wrought iron furniture. This material is the heaviest type of patio furniture, so your wrought iron club chair will still be on your patio after the harsh spring summer, and winter storms. Wrought Iron makes for a very heavy and sturdy type of furniture, creating a durable and strong piece of furniture. The only caveat when choosing wrought iron furniture is you may need two people to move around the furniture. It’s heavy, which is why it won’t blow away in a serious storm. If you’re looking for a club chair to stand up against a storm while maintain a classy look take a look at the Venetia Club Chair by Paragon Casual. Its durable, has a beautiful design, and the deep seating allows for great relaxation!

CHILLING BY THE POOL?

Don’t think we forgot about you pool lovers! If you like to relax pool side, a great furniture option is sling aluminum. With sling aluminum, you get all the comfort and cushion of a normal fabric, but the sling aluminum dry’s much faster. When you get out of the pool and sit on a sling aluminum piece of furniture, you won’t have to worry about waiting hours for it to dry. It’s rust proof too! One of our popular items in this category is the Marine Grade Polymer High Back Swivel Rocker. It is padded for some serious comfort after swimming laps in the pool.

CLASSIC WICKER

If none of these options fit your needs, there is always the choice to go with a wood or wicker furniture set. Wicker and wood are appealing for its warm and timeless styles. What’s great about wood or wicker, is it will hold up nicely in any and all climates.  Wicker is always a classic choice that offers a beautiful modern look when it comes to outdoor furniture.

Though, if you’re in very dry areas like Arizona, wood furniture will require a bit more maintenance. Wood is very well known for its’ longevity and durability – just look at your grandma’s picnic table she’s probably had around since you were a baby! One of our favorite wicker collections is the Terrace Curved Sectional. It’s a fun, affordable design that differs from your basic L-sectional set.

3 Things To Know Before Buying Patio Furniture

As the temperatures continue to rise across much of the country, many people are starting to think about warm summer days spent outside in their backyard. When daydreaming of warmer weather, why not imagine yourself in a high-quality, comfortable and beautiful patio chair? In order to make that dream a reality, here’s three things to look for in patio furniture before jumping on the web or heading to the store so you get the best deal on patio furniture.

1. A Quality Manufacturer

You wouldn’t buy a car made by a company that no one had ever heard of, would you? The same rule goes when buying furniture for your backyard. If you plan to keep your furniture for any length of time and have it last, go with a company that has been around for a while. They will have more products to offer, a better warranty guarantee, and higher quality materials.

2. High Back seating
When comparing patio furniture sets, make sure you are comparing apples to apples. One way that big box stores will try to pass off lower-quality patio furniture by selling “half-back” sofas and chairs. What is “half-back” mean in terms of patio furniture? Exactly what it sounds like. They backing on the chairs and sofa only goes up halfway. This means that when lean back in your seat, you’ll end up leaning over the back of your chair back. It’s not nearly as comfortable as a high back or full back seating. Make sure when comparing furniture sets that you’re looking at high back furniture sets. You’ll be glad years down the road when your favorite seat in the house is outside on the patio!

3. Fabric

Patio furniture’s fabric is the most important feature on your furniture set. It’s the first thing guests will notice and the last thing they will forget. You can completely make your backyard feel like your “own” when you select a fabric color and pattern that fits your style. The important fact about high quality fabric is that it will feel just as comfortable and look just as great years down the line as it will the day you get it. Don’t just pick a patio furniture set for cushion color, but pick it for style and quality too.

These are three things that we think you should consider before shopping for patio furniture this Spring. What other things did you consider when looking for your patio furniture set? Let us know what you think!
