Just like indoors, playing with cushions is the easiest way to inject color and textures into your garden decor game, which makes it as crucial as the furniture itself.
While purchasing a garden cushion, the major aspects to be carefully looked at are not just the look and feel. Versatility is important so is the durability. Considering that it is for outdoor use, it is important that the outer cover material of the cushion is all-weather, moisture resistant, UV resistant, fade resistant, mild and mildew resistant etc. Filling used in a garden and outdoor cushion also have to be moisture resistant and fast drying.
Commonly, outer cover of outdoor cushions are made of the these materials:

Cotton canvas with PVC coating
Best option if you give importance to look and feel over durability. Made of cotton yarn, these are not water resistant. If to use outdoors, these cushions need to treated with PVC coating every year
Polyster canvas with PVC coating
Made of polyester yarns with PVC coating
These are the best option for the garden furniture cushion. Sunbrella is an engineered fabric which is waterproof, fade resistant. mold and mildew resistant. Also, these can be easily washed as it is waterproof.
Just like the outer cover, the inner filling of the cushions also has to be chosen carefully.
