Yes that is true when it rains you have to put cushions away.

I have used lovely outdoor furniture for years in So. Cal. And my cushions stand up very well. I take them in to a shed when possible but the secret is to buy (or have custom made) only Sunbrella ( my opinion of the best) cushion material and be sure that the filling materials are all outdoor quality which allows water to flow through so it doesn't soak up water and dries quickly.

Yes it will. You can also plant grocery store bought sweet potatoes but you will probably not get this color.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

There aren't many plants that can transition from slick, modern settings to kitschy cottages, but sweet potato vine can. It fits into this modern seating area seamlessly.
1. Use high planters to create privacy. Lush greenery, tall grasses and trailing flowers create a natural privacy screen on this patio. Try placing large window box–style planters atop a low wall to achieve a similar effect.
Raise those planters. Add more vertical cover (and much-needed color) by securing planters on top of a low concrete or brick wall.
Christine Tusher added this to Grow a Lush Privacy Screen
No space for beds? Use raised planter boxes to create a lushly layered barrier of ornamental grasses and fragrant blooms.
Raise the plantsCreate a chic, well-ordered, city garden by raising plants off the ground with elevated wooden planters. This has the double benefit of creating maximum floor space in a small garden or terrace whilst also providing a screen to offer shade and provide cover from city streets and people next door.

This is a great image to get a sense of what it would be like to soften the edges with plants. The proposed drawing shows the use of plants to soften the south side of the porch, obscuring the view to the rest of the roof. I imagine the planter only a bit deeper than a standard window box, so that the weight of wet soil would not be too great. (This would be verified with Andy.) Also, if you prefer this style of furniture, we could look into creating a cleating system to tie pieces down.
