At Patio and Hearth Shop in Greenville, NC and Rocky Mount, NC, we believe that time spent outdoors is time well spent.

During the colder winter months, you likely won’t be using your outdoor furniture too much, but that doesn’t mean you should forget all about it. Instead, take a few simple and effective steps to protect your outdoor furniture from the snow, ice, and freezing temperatures of the winter months.

If you have storage space, such as a garage or shed, this is the best option for protecting your outdoor furniture. When the weather starts to get cold, you can transfer the furniture to storage until spring returns.

If you don’t have storage space available, you can use outdoor furniture covers to protect your furniture from snow and ice. Even with these covers in place, you’ll want to sweep away any snow that accumulates before it has a chance to freeze or melt. 

If any of your outdoor furniture has cushions or pillows, go ahead and bring those in for the winter to protect them from damage.

If you have a grill, be sure to invest in a grill cover, especially for those winter months. If you want to store your grill indoors, be sure to remove the propane tank before doing so. Never store a propane tank indoors. Don’t worry– the cold weather won’t hurt your tank. 

If you follow these easy steps to protect your outdoor furniture, you’ll be able to enjoy it for years to come.
