garden furniture

I've recently bought some wrought iron garden furniture.  What could I put on the feet to protect my timber decking ?

Any suggestions ?

    How about those sticky felt pads that you can use  on furniture if you have wooden floors ? Only drawback being you would have to replace them more often if they are outside. I use these on the bottom of decorative plantpots to stop them from scratching the windowsills image You can buy them in most supermarkets but I've just discovered them in our local pound shop image So. at that price.................... image

  • Hardwood decking will cope, the cheap softwood decking will mark easily. Sticky felt pads will work but will fall off after the first rain. I would use rubber and use a waterproof glue like araldite.
