When choosing a garden bench remember that certain woods do not withstand the outside elements well. You will do well choosing cedar teak cypress and mahogany for instance. Another option although some people believe it takes away from the natural look is a wrought iron garden bench or a plastic garden bench. Finally concrete marble stone and granite are also beautiful and durable but unfortunately unless they have a cushion they are not very comfortable. When buying or building a wood garden bench remember the cardinal rule - the fewer screws and bolts the better the finished bench will look.
Welcome friends with a curved border. Sharp modern lines look crisp but they are not for everyone. If you crave a softer look try introducing a round shape to your patio with a gently curved bench made from stone or wood.
Tuck a bench between planters for built-in shade. If you could use more shade in your patio consider installing a bench nestled between a pair of big planters filled with trees. Check with your local garden center to choose a variety that does well in a pot and works with your climate.
This is the kind of bench you can style to fit into almost any decor. Add baskets to store mittens and gloves a cushion in the color of your choice to soften it up and perhaps even a few birch logs in one of the cubbies to warm it all up. I love the versatility. I can picture this bench looking great in a lodge or rustic-style interior. The leather and nailhead detail are the perfect finishing touches.
