Why Winter is a Good Time to Shop for Outdoor Furniture

January 13, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

It’s the dead of winter, so why is patio furniture on sale? Winter time is actually one of the best times to reap huge bargains on patio items, including outdoor wicker furniture, firepits, plants and more. If you’ve been saving for the opportunity to revitalize your patio, then get ready to save big on your next upgrades.

Why Winter is Best

There are a few reasons why you might want to opt to purchase your upgrades during the winter. Hardware stores are looking to sell off excess stock left over from summer, so you’ll find lots of ground covering and gardening supplies for bargain prices. You’ll also run into fewer shipping problems ordering large items, like an outdoor wicker daybed, because you’ll have a head start on the busy season.

What to Order

Winter isn’t a good time to order fresh things, like plants or flowers, but it’s a good time to buy seeds you can store until you need to use them. It’s also a good time to look at pots and various fixtures for the back yard. If you’re ordering furniture, don’t forget replacement cushions you’ll need to withstand the weather.

As a final note, it’s a good idea to arm yourself with some water sealant you can use to try and protect any wood you might have exposed to the elements all year round. Covers for furniture is necessary unless you opt for wicker, which has superb durability throughout the year.
