Because outdoor furniture is prone to damage by the elements, carefully consider your outdoor furniture placement. Protection from the outdoor elements is important because direct sunlight, moisture, and fluctuating temperatures can weaken and prematurely age your furniture. Take precautions that keep this fact in mind when planning your layout as outdoor furniture can be pricey.
