When the water from patio pots drains out, it can stain or rot lumber, which would be a shame if you have a beautiful deck. To prevent this, treat decking regularly with wood preservative, and remember that if your patio is in shade, it may become slippery in wet weather. Tiles, which come in a wide range of colors, may be a safer, more practical option.
