Next to Cedar, Cypress is another softwood deemed fit for the task of building Adirondack chairs. Surprisingly, it is often categorized with hardwoods.
These are awesome! I love that you used a pattern for the pieces. I have no doubt your entire family will enjoy the nice weather…when it finally arrives, in your new chairs! Pinned! .
Blue is always a safe choice, because it is the most liked color. Some shades of blue, such as turquoise, promote cleanliness and calmness. Blue Adirondack chairs are also great poolside or in nautical-themed designs. Combining the stability of blue and the energy of red, purple gives off a luxurious effect.
In practice, these are almost identical chairs to the Polywood line of poly Adirondack chairs, but the color palette is slightly different. We definitely favor the Polywood line’s colors, but if you find a color you like and the Trex one is cheaper, go for it!

Often a surprising color combination or wood choice will make a patio space shine.
Just make sure it is not too soft. Go for a species that is fairly strong, stable, and durable. You may also want to consider treating your wood for resistance to UV, water, weather, rot, and bugs.
Remember to also look into the acceptance of paint and other finishes. Some types of wood don’t receive paint/glue/polish as easily.
However this chair is still a great outdoors chairs for the heavy person and is meant to survive whatever Mother nature throws at it. It will come down to a personal choice to which Adirondack chair to buy, but my bet is still with the Highwood.

Dear Joanne: Plastic patio furniture can’t be recycled in your curbside recycle container: Its size and shape make it a likely culprit to jam traditional MRF machinery. However, your waste hauler may accept it, if they offer bulk-waste pick-up or drop-off, as the large items they collect will be handled on a more individual basis.
Now, while you might think that the lighter design of this chair will negatively affect the durability, that is not the case. In fact, the hardware that comes with this chair is exceptionally tough and weather resistant. This hardware is made out of 304-grade stainless steel, which is guaranteed not to rust, even if you leave the chair out in the weather.
Many popular, plastic outdoor furniture pieces are made from recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE/RIC #2). Though recycled HDPE may not be represented by a number, you might be able to tell a piece of outdoor furniture is made with recycled HDPE by the way it looks: It often has a vague wood-grain texture, but is shinier than untreated wood. Many current styles of Adirondack chairs are made with recycled HDPE.
Modern Designers now often construct these chairs out of poly-resin, and these chairs are quite high quality, maintenance free, and extremely resistant to the elements.
