The best standard of patio furniture is teak patio furniture. It is an extremely dense hardwood that is rust resistant, bug resistant and needs very little maintenance to be long lasting and durable. This special wood comes from forests in Southeast Asia. A reputable dealer will be able to tell you where the teak came from and if it was harvested responsibly. There are forests that are being harvested without being replenished and this is decreasing the supply while ultimately driving the price of teak wood higher.
Teak oil is abundant in the wood, and gives it the qualities that make it resistant to rot, insects and rust. The oil need not to be replenished and is in the wood. The furniture is a lifetime investment. You will not have to replace your teak furniture and you can even put it in your will. It’s more durable and natural beauty.
