Probably the most common area for outdoor dining and recreation—the patio—is a paved, ground-level area adjoining a house, cottage, or other building. Concrete, stone, cobbles, brick, any material goes, and the fact that it is typically uncovered to sun and rain means that it’s a great spot to arrange a raised bed, some potted plants, or other decorative vegetation.
The exposure to the weather also means that your furniture should be able to withstand the elements. Fortunately, all Highwood products are made from 100% recycled plastics, weatherproof, and guaranteed to never crack, peel, or rot. They look just like real wood, minus the hassle of sanding, staining, or painting.
Patios are probably the largest outdoor entertaining spots, and since most of them end where the backyard begins, they offer a chance to spread out and create something grand. Consider the Bodhi Pergola, available in 10’x10’, 10’x12’, and 12’x12’ sizes, with or without your choice of swings. With a Pergola as an anchor point, you’re ready to go big—maybe with a set of four Classic Westport Adirondack Chairs, complete with two folding side tables. Whichever you choose, the patio is sure to be the site of countless gatherings, big, small, and everything in between.
