Dressing our Outdoor Oasis ~ Eco-friendly, Recycled Furniture


With our in ground pool, my husband and I spend a lot of time outdoors in the summer, on life guard/kid control duty.  One thing is certain ~ with the combination of teenagers and a pool, you can never have enough seating.

Polywood Rockford 72" Bench


In particular, I've been looking at Park Benches as we have the perfect spot at the back of the pool area, under some flowering trees, which would make a nice spot to relax out of the sun.







I discovered a wide selection of eco-friendly options at Terra Bound Solutions.  The Polywood Rockford bench, made from High Density Polyethylene is a piece I can leave out for the season without worry of wear because it contains UV-inhibited pigment systems.  I love that it's constructed of 90% recycled materials and that I can choose from six finishes.

While I wouldn't likely put cushions on this bench, due to the placement I'm considering, I appreciate that several Polywood bench models offer cushions, with several fabrics to choose from.

Siesta Adirondack Chair




I also found Adirondack Chairs, constructed of recycled plastic at Terra Bound Solutions.  Mold and mildew resistant, these poly chairs stand up to the weather and would be perfect for lounging closer to the pool.    The choices of colors is outstanding and I can match my existing pieces while adding additional eco-friendly seating!

Recycled plastic, or HDPE lumber is made with over 90% recycled plastic material (like milk jugs, and other similiar plastic waste).HDPE lumber or recycled plastic lumber that is used is as strong if not stronger than the best hardwoods. It also outperforms wood in many ways. Your pieces will never rot, mold, or splinter. It will not attract mildew like wood. It stands up to the harshest of weather conditions. These types of plastic picnic tables will never need to be refinished, varnished, or painted because the color is embedded in the actual plastic, throughout. It is also easily cleaned with mild soap and water. Graffiti is easily removed. And last but not least, you are supporting American made quality manufacturing as all of our recycled plastic outdoor furnishings are made in the USA.

Terra Bound Solutions has a fantastic selection of recycled plastic outdoor furniture, with additional offerings in their Picnic Table and Playground Equipment Collections.  Certainly worth exploring for your outdoor oasis needs!
