Assess your garden to determine what you'll want in terms of materials, style and location


Of course not all garden seating has to serve a practical purpose. Sometimes a seat or a bench is a design element and serves no function other than its aesthetic appeal. For example, seating can become a focal point when it leads your eye into the garden or entices you down a path. Even more alluring is the promise of a secret hideaway to read or take a nap. And don’t underestimate the element of whimsy. A quirky chair can be a feature that makes a garden memorable. Seats like these may never be sat upon, but the temptation is there.
