What makes the backyard furniture so versatile is the wide variety of different furniture pieces that are available. Backyard furniture comes in different configurations such as benches, tables, chairs footrests, and coffee tables. All of these furniture pieces come in unique designs, styles, and are constructed in a variety of different materials. Most backyard furniture is made from bamboo and teak, iron aluminum, fiberglass, plastic, and steel.

When selecting wood, teak wood is the most often chosen. People select teak even though it is more expensive than bamboo. Teak is found in the tropical monsoon forests of southeast Asia. It is considered to be a tropical hardwood. Teak grows relative tall with large trunks and it is a deciduous (shedding) foliage. Because teak has some weather-resistant properties it is considered an excellent choice for outdoor furniture. Teak is also valuable because it contains some natural oils that make coating the finished product unnecessary.

Old teak or teak from older forests is more valuable because it is not prone to water damage as easily as young teak wood. Teak is such a fine wood it just naturally lends itself to being handled by wood craftsmen. An experienced craftsman can create teak furniture that highlights the workmanship and the natural beauty of the wood.

Teak outdoor furniture will maintain the attractive beauty of the furniture and remain very sturdy and durable for a long period of time. When in contact with metal teak is rust-resistant and will resist corrosion. If you are able to afford the pride, teak furniture may be your best buy because of the beauty and durability of the pieces.

Teak was originally available in a soft golden color. Over time this color will change to a soft silver color. To restore the golden color simply clean the furniture and apply a small amount of teal oil and the original color is back.

Teak outdoor furniture includes benches, tables, planters, chairs, ornaments, and lamps for the poolsides, backyards, parks, gardens, and deck decorations. Teak outdoor furniture will enhance any garden or outdoor settings. Teak patio furniture is available in the same type of pieces and configurations as outdoor furniture.
