Out of all the outdoor furniture available today garden benches are often more appreciated for their good looks rather than comfort. So when looking for a garden bench take into consideration their beauty and overall fit with your personal garden style. There are so many styles to choose from when selecting that perfect garden bench. Take a look at these beautiful examples of the extremely popular styles of garden benches.
Whether you have a stone, metal, or wooden garden bench keep in mind that the placement of your garden bench should be accessible and in a focal point of your garden. For example a garden bench next to a path leading toward your garden gazebo makes sense, one behind a thicket does not. A garden bench in the distance can draw visitors into your garden and lead them to a breathtaking view, while a bench beneath a arbor is the view.
In choosing the type of garden bench you want, think of the setting and amount of maintenance the material requires. Cast iron for example looks beautiful in a vintage style garden, but it does require repainting when exposed to the elements. Woods such as pine or oak will need to be sealed and occasionally conditioned to keep from rotting in the moist seasons. Teak, stone and concrete can withstand decades of wear and tear with out much maintenance and still look great throughout the years. Another great option to consider is synthetic wicker, this is a durable material that looks just like the real thing but is unaffected by weather won’t sag or rot.
