You can find garden benches in many materials, including iron and concrete, wood and even steel. Traditionally, a garden bench was built out of wood using hardwoods such as teak; however, other popular combinations for a garden bench are metal for the bench top and steel or aluminum for the framework. Garden benches are often used to relax in the garden, read, talk with children, or exercise. A garden bench can be used to relax by the pool or grass on a patio, deck, or other outdoor space.
There are a variety of styles of garden benches available to suit your needs. A timber garden bench will suit your needs if you are looking for something simple and straightforward to compliment your garden. However, if you are looking for something a bit more specialised or perhaps something that will add an element of interest, a wrought iron bench may be the perfect choice.
One of the most popular styles of bench is one that lies on the grass. These benches can be used on a sloping grass as a seat or footrest. The seat can be made from a variety of materials such as wood, resin or wicker. A wooden garden bench seat can be made of strips of wood cut to the desired height. These can then be stapled together to create a sturdy, but comfortable bench seat.
Popular garden benches made of wrought iron are also available. They are available in both single and double pieces. Some prefer the simplicity of a single wrought iron garden bench, while others may prefer two pieces to provide a seat and stool. When using wrought iron as a garden bench, you need to make sure that you treat it correctly as there are different ways in which you should treat the metal when it is hot.
Teak garden benches make a great choice as patio seating. Teak retains its natural colour and sheen for many years if it is properly cared for. It is a very durable material and it will not crack or splinter. There are various styles of teak garden bench available. You can choose a patio table and chairs set, or you can go with a simple single table design, and if you wish you can add a pergola with roof.
There are many styles and materials available for garden furniture. You can rest assured that your garden bench will provide a comfortable place for you and your loved ones to spend time outdoors. Your personal preferences, budget, and the type of garden furniture you need will determine which option you make. Remember though, that when choosing outdoor timber, you should choose from a reputable supplier and ensure that you do your research to ensure that you get what you pay for.
