5 Types of Patio Furniture for Windy Backyards

Do you live in a particularly windy region? Instead of furniture that flies over the fence, you’ll want to choose patio furniture that is built to make your life easier. Here are some choices you may want to look into:

Lattice-backed chairs

The first and most important guideline for hosting an outdoor party is that if anything can catch in the wind, it will. Look for furniture that is not easily movable. Chairs with decorative cut-outs in their backs, lattice surfaces, or anything with a tiny profile won’t start billowing or moving around.


Barstools are superior in this regard. There’s no back to catch the wind on. If the wind becomes threatening, stow barstools under a counter or in your backyard shed.

Serving trays that hook the table

Trays with food and drink are especially vulnerable to the wind. Look for trays with a C-shaped platform that sandwiches around the table’s surface. Upside-down U-shaped tables also keep platters from shifting and falling.

Fire tables

Fire tables are the ideal compromise between a fire pit and a dining table. Look for fire tables with big lips and platforms surrounding the center flame if you live in an area with a lot of wind. When the wind blows, it creates a psychological barrier by knocking the flame to a diagonal line.

Weighted cushions

If you’ve had enough of hunting for your couch cushions, don’t toss them yet. Weighted choices are a good place to start. There are several cushions that include weighted slats at the bottom of the foam. Not only does this eliminate the need to tie down the cushions, but it also helps to hold down the furniture.
