Teak wood has long been prized for its outdoor use, not just for its beauty, but because teak survives all that our seasons throw its way. Teak ages gracefully with very little maintenance. Teak wood outdoor furniture will last 50-75 years, untreated. Teak will not split, though it may check (the grain will split away at the ends), which is completely normal. It is very important when choosing teak outdoor furniture that you make sure that it is plantation grown. This is important because hardwood forests are being destroyed by poachers. Plantation wood is grown as a renewable crop, in an environmentally responsible way. Local production encourages stability and further helps to preserve the ecology of our planets forests.
Although the area of the garden may be small there is no need to scrimp on quality. The ideal furniture can still be found and placed in the area making it an inviting space for everyone to use. Another consideration that has to be thought about is the weather conditions, and storage facilities. Unless the garden is fortunate to be in a sunny area all year the luxury furniture may need to be stored. The outdoor furniture may not be suited to being left outside during the winter months; if this is the case storage has to be considered. If the furniture is left in the rain, snow or strong winds it may become damaged, and worn quickly. When spending good money on the best furniture, ensuring it is stored and maintained correctly is essential. If the furniture is looked after it will last for years to come.

Even though aluminum is considered to be a great material for outdoor furniture that resists all types of weathers, it is necessary to keep it undamaged by applying a special cleaning process. Aluminum does not rust, but throughout the seasonal changes, its color can fade or it can develop a rough surface. It will look like it has particles of dirt, but these fragments dont disappear easily. If the surface is slightly discolored, clean it with soap and water, added to it some household acid like lemon juice or vinegar. On the other hand, if the surface is very damaged, rub it with a steel wool pot, wash it and dry it. Be careful, all steel wool should be removed completely, or it may rust and stain the aluminum. Also, keep your aluminum patio furniture away from commercial cleaners.
On another note, be careful not to store cushions in plastic, as it forbids it from breathing, which directly causes for mildew.
