Conclusion

 

When looking for outdoor seating for the front of your home, don't overlook the resin wicker porch swings.  Having seating that you can sit and relax, read a book is a great addition to your home. It will also add to your curb appeal if you can see it from the street.  I would pony up the extra money for the aluminum frame on the Prospect Hill swing, as it will last in the outdoor conditions a little better.

Having a spring or cushions to soften the seat will be another great addition.  Look to Plow&Hearth for all of your outdoor seating and comfort solutions.
