When those coastal breezes get fierce, you are going to be glad that you purchased HEAVY porch furniture, without loose cushions. We anticipated that but then made the the mistake of getting a pair of Highwood Lehigh rockers (which we love, by the way) for the third floor porch and lost sleep on many a windy night from the noise of their movement until we figured out that we should lay them on their side. Does anyone have a solution for top heavy fiberglass planters falling over in the wind? I already put HEAVY rocks in the bottom without much improvement.

dawnrr We have used a rustproof L-bracket mounted/screwed at floor level on the windy side to give it a bit of support. Of course they are pretty permanent then, but won't tip. Paint them to match your decking.
