Deck and patio misters connect to a classic garden hose to deliver a space with a blanket of fine water mist. The energizing, cooling mist has the power to reduce the oppressive summer temps by up to 30 degrees while in use. These life-changing water features come in freestanding, wrapping and overhead designs to best serve your outdoor space. A freestanding deck mister is our go-to pick for sunbathing on a deck or cooling off kiddos and pets in the yard. Wrapping deck misters are perfect for a deck column, while overhead misters appear seamless and integrated when installed on a covered patio roof.
