If you aren’t using up the most amount of space in your outdoor living space, it might be time for a patio makeover. Treat your patio like another room in your home by incorporating items that match your style.
If you’re struggling with ideas for your outdoor space, consider speaking with experts in landscape design. We offer on-site outdoor planting, landscape mulching, and even basic garden advice. After you have a better idea of your patio design, the next step is to choose what kind of patio furniture you’d like for your space.
Choosing Different Kinds of Outdoor Patio Furniture
If your old patio furniture is ready to be replaced with new pieces, make sure you check what kind of furniture you will need. Here are a couple smart options our garden experts suggest:
All-Weather Cast Aluminum
- Cast aluminum furniture is a great choice because it is extremely durable. This kind of patio furniture is the best kind of furniture for all-weather.
- Sling patio furniture is water-resistent and lightweight. This selection is perfect as pool-side patio furniture. Sling furniture is also good for uncovered patio environments for rain or shine.
Our garden expert teams also offer custom orders so you can choose your favorite patterns and styles no matter the type of patio furniture you buy!

Consider Patio Flower Ideas
Wipe the slate clean and remove eyesores like overgrown or dead plants to make room for new ones. Plant trees, vegetables, fruits or flowers that provide four seasons of interest and enjoy your patio space all year long. Increase your curb appeal by adding flowering containers to patios and entryways. You can also try combining edibles and herbs plants for easy go-to cooking essentials, right outside your back door. We have grab and go containers at our local Home & Garden centers so you can incorporate patio flowering yourself!
