When choosing outdoor support for areas, such as, outdoor counters, shelving, and awnings, forged iron is clearly a good choice over other materials that deteriorate quickly and those that are weak and flimsy. Look for a metal that is of a heavy gauge or heavy duty iron. Not only will you achieve a strong support, for your counters and such, but you will be bringing in design and character to your outdoor living space through using decorative iron. There are many decorative architecture iron products on the market that work beautifully in outdoor and indoor settings.
One of my favorite outdoor decor pieces is bamboo water spouts. A beutifuly designed Japanese bamboo water fountain like a Shishi Odoshi (Deer Scarer) bamboo fountain creates zen-like back yard. A perfect compliment to a Shishi Odoshi fountain is a tea stand and fragrant Asian herbs.
