preventing deck chairs from scratching deck
OK--just finished staining a garapa deck--used wood-tux and looks great (but that is the subject of another post). We are already running into problems with the deck chairs--basic aluminum chairs around a table with plastic caps on the feet--scratching the deck. Does anyone have any ideas on how to prevent this from happening? I don't think I can use those felt pads since it is outside. Also, we considered putting the dining area on an exterior rug, but am concerned that it is close to a tree and will get covered in bird poop. With the amount of time it took to clean and stain the deck, I hate being anal about people sitting in the chairs and sliding them around, but I can see that I am going to be unless I can fix the problem.
