Outdoor Canteen Table FAQs

Can I put a solid wood table outside?

  • Yes, you can put a solid wood table outside all year round
  • The wood needs to be a suitable outdoor wood like Iroko or teak alternative
  • The oils in the hardwood wood slow down the rotting process

How tall should an outdoor table be?

The standard height of an outdoor table is around 75 cm. Different products come in slightly different heights. The 75 cm allows enough room for your legs when sitting on a 45 cm high bench or outdoor chair.

If you want to use a high outdoor canteen table these start around 110 cm high and can only be used with seating like outdoor bar stools.

How long do outdoor tables last?

It does depend on what type of material the outdoor tables are made from and how you maintain the furniture.

  1. Galvanised steel tables:
    The frame on Gargantua outdoor table is made from galvanised steel and will last for years. The hardwood top will need to be maintained with the appropriate oil and cleaner.
  2. Powder coated metal tables:
    The powder coated metal steel on the Ark outdoor table will not last as long as a galvanised table but are a cheaper and more environmentally friendly manufacturing process.
  3. Solid wood tables:
    Unlike galvanised and powder-coating an all wood canteen table will need regular maintenance which includes cleaning and oiling.


Metal coated tables require less maintenance than wood tables and are more suitable if you want the outdoor table to be a fixed to the ground or surface. Ideally you would bring wood tables indoors over the winter months.

Can you put outdoor table on grass?

To put an outdoor table on grass in the summer is fine but if you need to use your outdoor tables all year round you will need to place the tables on a hard surface like concrete or a wooden deck.

If you place outdoor tables on grass:

  • You will need to move the tables every time the grass is cut
  • The legs will sink into the ground over winter and will become unusable
  • Wood tables will soak up more water from grass than a hard surface
  • The grass under the tables will wear quickly and become unsightly
