Benches – A Traditional Outdoor Resting Spot

It’s hard to imagine walking through a garden and not stumbling upon a sun-kissed bench. Often made of wood they offer a warm spot to sit for a spell and admire the natural beauty all around you. Elegant flowing lines and a softly curved seat embrace you in comfort as you breathe deeply taking in the lush fragrance of the surrounding flowers and foliage. A bench is a necessary accessory for any garden.

Benches come in all shapes and sizes and are made from different types of wood and resin or plastic. Backed or backless, rustic or elegant the best way to browse the many different benches out there is to shop online. Instead of dragging yourself to store after store you can see a greater variety of bench styles with the click of a button. Comparison shop and find the right bench for you at the best price from the comfort of your home.

When buying a bench you have to decide what you want to use it for and where you want to put it. Not just for gardens they’re great for overflow seating in a dining area or a romantic retreat under a tree or arbor. Maybe you want to place a backless one beside the pool for holding towels or beside a pond for quiet moments of reflection. Try one on the porch with a chair or two for a tranquil sitting area or place one alongside a large dining table for a casually chic table set that’s full of picnic charm.

Benches come in several styles from the classic Adirondack to the simply elegant Lutyen. Choose from benches made from teak or pine. Some are backless, some are rustic and some even move like a glider bench. Try a bench that wraps around a tree for a cool respite from the afternoon sun. A tete-a-tete offers seating and a table in one piece while a storage bench offers a place to sit and as well as somewhere to stash anything from towels to pool toys and everything between.

Benches made of pine or resin are available in a variety of colors to easily add a punch of color to your patio. You can also add some personal style when you add some Sunbrella cushions and pillows to your bench. Water and fade resistant they will stand up to the elements while brightening your patio season after season.

So whether you need extra seating for dinner parties or a romantic retreat in your garden benches are the way to go. They provide seating for more than one person while adding charm and style to your backyard paradise with little or no maintenance. Complete your backyard retreat with a garden bench and continue an age old tradition of sitting for a spell among the fragrant flowers and lush foliage listening to the soft gurgle of a brook or the chirping of birds. Your backyard getaway is filled with sensory pleasures and now you have the perfect place to sit and enjoy them. You’ll want to spend as much time outdoors as you can.
