When decorating an outdoor area, there is more to consider than when furnishing the living areas of your house. Few materials can withstand adverse conditions such as prolonged sunlight, unexpected rain, inches of snow, pelting hail, corrosive tree sap, nesting insects, and swift winds. You will not want to choose furniture that could be ruined the first time you forget to bring it in.

Teak is one of the world's most durable woods; it is close grained hardwood making it great for carving and long-lasting furniture. The heartwood of tectona trees has a special resin that makes the wood very water-resistant, so outdoor furniture and bathroom furniture is often made with teak. Many boats are also made with teak.
