Wooden Garden Bench

Wooden garden benches are a great investment. They give a touch of class to any garden or landscape and they are incredibly affordable. There are of course many different types of wood material that garden benches can be made from. What wood you select will more then likely based on price and design.

Some of the different woods used are....

* Teak
* Red Cedar
* Oak
* Pine
* Bamboo

If you want to go and buy something that will really stand out, try mahogany. Just make sure that the mahogany wood is grown in a plantation. Tropical woods like mahogany are often cut down and used illegally as furniture and this destroys our fragile eco-system. Plantation mahogany is grown specifically for use as furniture.

One of the most popular wood benches is the bench with a roof on top. You can see an example of what I mean by visiting the website below.....
There are 3 different types of wood garden benches. They are;

1) The plain wood bench without a back
2) The plain wood bench with a back
3) The plain wood bench with a back and canopy/roof

What one you buy will depend on what you want to use it for, how often you will use, what the weather is like in your area and how much you are willing to spend on a wooden garden bench.

There are a few rules when buying a wooden garden bench. While these rules or tips might sound like they are backwards, believe me they are true. When you are buying a wooden garden bench, the fewer the bolts and screws in the bench, the better quality the bench will be and the more stable the bench will be for you and your guests to sit on.

If you live in a rainy climate or very cold climate, wood like pine will not last long outdoors, so the best options would be woods like red cedar or cypress.

Of course, like I said before, the wood you buy will most probably be determined by how much you want to invest on your garden bench.
