First of all, when is the best time to buy outdoor patio furniture, you ask? All right, I know you probably have heard that the deepest discounts on outdoor furniture happen in September and October.
Specifically, please don’t be discouraged because buying pieces you need in the late winter or early spring is also when you can grab some significant savings.
In fact, both brick-and-mortar stores and online businesses will have furniture for the upcoming season at this time of year.

Ultimately, outdoor furniture is expensive, so it is essential to get it right the first time. Getting it correct involves choosing high-quality, durable furniture that is right for your climate.
Outdoor furniture is not something you want to buy based on price alone. It is equally important to understand what materials wear the best and are most conducive to your climate.
For instance, it would not be prudent to buy teak wood furniture that would get left outside year-round. Teak wood is tremendously solid, but the sun or rain/snow would wreak havoc on the wood over time.
Consequently, when deciding to review conversational patio sets, I reviewed aluminum-framed sets with removable cushions. Additionally, aluminum is durable, strong, and sustainable in most climates.
Furthermore, aluminum does not rust unless the powder-coating has been damaged but will then degrade over time if not. Aluminum sets are also lighter weight and easily moved.
