Travel-and-Leisure If you are into outdoor landscaping and gardening, you obviously spend a considerable amount of time outdoors. And as the weather turns from the cold and rainy days of winter to warm spring days, visions of crocuses, tulips and outdoor barbeques take over. But spending so much time outside, especially doing the things you love, can certainly make you lose track of the time. So, why not add an outdoor clock to your patio area for everyone to enjoy?

Will Weather Be An Issue? Despite your climate, it is always best to use outdoor clocks that are waterproof and weatherproof. These clocks are usually sealed with weatherproofing sealant and gaskets to ensure that the rain and dust stay out of the clock’s mechanisms. Most outdoor clocks will be clearly labeled as such, but it pays to double check the packaging just to make sure. Even though most outdoor clocks are manufactured to be weatherproof, you can protect them further by selecting a location for them that is sheltered from the elements. The best location for an outside wall clock is higher on the wall where it can benefit from the protection of the overhang (eaves) of your roof. If you live in the Northern climates, the ultimate protection during the winter months is to take your clock down and store it in a warm, dry location. Before putting your clock in storage, perform any required maintenance per the operating manual and you can be ensured of enjoying your clock through many seasons.
