One of the most truly beautiful ways to set your outdoor deck or patio apart from the neighbors is with a set of red cedar outdoor furniture. Nothing says the woods like these pieces, which evoke memories of the giant and stately trees of the Northwest. Pick up a garden bench if you want to seat more than one.
You can stick it out in the corner of your yard, maybe underneath some trees or nestled between some six foot high bushes, sprouting their berries or thorny leaves. The benches also go well closer to the hub of activity outside your home. You don’t even need to sit in them; they just look good and idyllic. Another nice compliment for any red cedar outdoor furniture is a porch swing. Now I guarantee if you get one of these pieces you will use it.
Everyone who comes through your house from the late spring until the early fall will unknowingly be drawn to the front porch, where they will rock back and forth gently and talk and watch the goings on in the neighborhood. It is a beautiful thing, to rock in your cedar porch swing and catch the end of the sunset, and watch the night activity pick up or die down. A recent favorite that has swept across the United States is red cedar Adirondack chairs.
They are sculpted to hold your back and your legs very naturally, taking care of people’s main gripe against wooden outdoor furniture. Very comfortable, they allow you to slink back, almost disappearing below eye-level, into the grass and below the trees. You are sure to make friends with some insects while you laze in your new Adirondack chairs. Red cedar deck boxes will enable you to store all your gardening tools in one central location. These items look much better than many of the alternatives, most especially they are an improvement over leaving things all over the place.
The final item of red cedar outdoor furniture that is worth mentioning is the picnic table. This one is wonderful if you tend to have kids strewn everywhere through your lawn and driveway and down the street. In the summer you can feed them outdoors (keeping the kitchen safe from muddy feet and spilling children), and then you can just call the dog in when they’re done, and he’ll eat all the leftover scraps.
Red cedar outdoor furniture can make these truly nice-looking and practical solutions, for your summer living, happen. I wish you many enjoyable summer days on your new cedar patio furniture.
