If you've priced a patio set lately, you've probably experienced some sticker shock. I decided to give this one a try because of the price and I have not been disappointed.
I originally reviewed this patio set as it entered its 3rd summer of use. Unbelievably, the 6-piece set is now beginning its 8th summer!
When I first bought it, the flat box was just a tad too big for the back seat opening in my Corolla, but an Aldi employee helped me open the box and take everything out. Then it was easy to get everything in the car. It stays on the deck for the entire season and then gets stored in my (unheated) garage. It stills looks as good as it did when I first got it.
There is a still only a small amount of rust on a couple of the chairs. They are barely visible and could probably have been eliminated entirely had I treated with Rustoleum before use (or at any time since!).
Bottom line, I've neglected this patio set, year after year, and it is still coming through for me. Every year I'd think about replacing it, but as long as it's still holding up, I can continue to wait.
Gardenline offers accessories, like the umbrella base and lights (I have both but haven't used the lights yet for some reason). I have also purchased additional deck chairs that have the same basic look as this set.
Again, an exceptional value overall.
