There's a reason teak patio furniture is so popular. Anyone who has lugged patio furniture into storage, purchased expensive "winter slip covers", or just left the furniture outside only to discover that it was ruined after two seasons of use, can appreciate the easy maintenance of teak patio furniture.
If you wish to preserve the Golden color of teak, you may apply Teak oil to the product once or twice a year (when you notice fading). If you do not apply any teak oil the wood will bleach to a silvery color as seen below.
