HDPE (high-density polyethylene) furniture is an excellent addition to any yard for a variety of reasons. But only by understanding what its strengths really are can you use these to the greatest benefit of your outdoor life. Here are three of these strengths and how you can deploy them in your yard.
HDPE, or poly, building materials are some of the hardiest materials you can use outside. HDPE requires very little maintenance, doesn't crack or chip, is resistant to temperature changes, won't warp, and holds up under sun, ice, and rain.
This highly durable nature means you should use it to replace other outdoor furnishings in areas that take the biggest beating from the elements — places like uncovered patios, poolside, around fire pits, and in more distant nooks and crannies. Use delicate furnishings in protected zones, such as close to the house, under awnings and patio roofs, and where furniture is only used seasonally.
Plastic furniture is known for being lightweight, which is both good and bad. On the good side, it's easy to move. On the downside, it can easily be displaced by wind, rain, and casual usage.
On the other hand, its dense and hardy materials make HDPE furniture noticeably weightier and harder to move. Place these strategically in areas of the yard that suffer higher winds and rain than normal so you'll see less unwanted movement. You might also use them in more permanent arrangements, saving the lighter furniture for where you need more flexibility.
Want to add more vibrancy and color to your landscape? Then poly hardscape is a great way to do it. The process of recycling original materials like bottles and bags into new forms results in an artificial element that holds its color extremely well.
Available in many different colors — both artificial and natural hues — HDPE also resists fading in the sun or when exposed to grinding materials. So you can use these throughout your yard to give it whatever vibe you want without worrying about discoloration over time.
