Make sure your outdoor furniture does not have direct contact with Mother Earth. Even concrete blocks are better than soil. I use a semi-transparent oil stain on my Western Red Cedar outdoor stuff because, unlike varnish, it won’t flake and be a nightmare to refinish. Also, I store my outdoor benches etc. over the winter as leaving them out is a sure fire way to shorten their lifespan. Covering them in sito is not as good but is better than doing nothing.
