Choosing an appropriate patio clock involves finding one specifically designed to withstand the elements while also complementing the decor of the particular outdoor space. Consider selecting a clock that is battery-powered or a wireless indoor/outdoor model to avoid dealing with electrical cords.
Some ideas for patio clocks include clocks with stone or tile designs, medallion clocks, double-sided clocks that hang from brackets and those reminiscent of ancient sundials. These clocks hang on outdoor fireplaces or walls.
Many outdoor clocks come in a set with a matching thermometer. Still others have a hygrometer and/or thermometer inset as part of the clock for added function.
