Welcome to the latest installment of my special “All decked out” series of posts. The topic? A part of the home where the great outdoors and the green indoors meet: your patio, porch, lanai, deck, terrace, or whatever you might call it. So far, I’ve recommended outfitting your outdoor space with eco-friendly planters, non-gruesome bug traps, alfresco eatin’ and drinkin’ wares, decor items, low-impact lamps and lanterns, eye-catching watering cans made from recyclable/recycled materials, and eco-swings and hammocks for optimum lounging.
Given that swings and hammocks aren't for everyone (motion sickness anyone?) I thought I'd follow up with 10 sturdy and sustainable single-seaters that are still totally ideal for deckside loungin'.
