Rosica Alyssia. patio. September 10th , 2017.
The best kind of wood that can be used is definitely teak. Wood patio furniture has to suffer the elements, and teak withstands the test very nicely. It is naturally resistant to sunlight, so your tables and chairs have a very reduced chance of chipping and splintering in the dry hot summers, if it is made of teak. It also has natural content of silica (the same material that sand is made up of), due to which it is more resistant to water. The common problems of wood rot and wood swelling that water can cause do not happen with teak. It is also resistant to fungal attacks, so you can rest assured that it will not look ungainly when the rains are over. It also have the rare property of being resistant to fire. Due to the physical, chemical, and biological tenacity, it is the number one choice for making patio furniture, though it is one of the most expensive types of hardwoods around.
The raw material used in to explain the process in this tutorial is an unused parachute which is admittedly not found in everyone's garage. Parachutes though can be easily scavenged and recycled from secondhand shops and garage sales. So if you do manage to get a parachute from somewhere, use it to make a patio umbrella. A patio umbrella made from a parachute will give you a lot of shade and protect you from all kinds of extreme weather. Parachute material is very good for making patio umbrellas as it is extremely durable and also rainproof.
Note: USE GLOVES! Chlorine is toxic and harmful not only to you, but also to your plants. Take care to not let it splash on any plants in your garden.
This design turns the patio into almost an extended dining room to the house. The seating area is the center of attention and the rest of the design has been kept simple. Red paver bricks are used for flooring purposes, while a drywall of simple rock-stones line the outer edge of the patio. The furniture too is simple, but spacious enough to accommodate 5-6 people. A smattering of green compliments the minimalistic design.
