A Brief Guide to Garden Seating

We have a varied and impressive range of stone seating options for the garden, with something to suit every style.
If you’re wondering which style of seating you need, or what specific options are available to suit what you want, read on. Below is a brief guide to garden seating, which will help you narrow down the search as you browse our site.
The Multitasker
Our rustic folding bench is an innovative and attractive garden seating option. One way, you have a shabby chic wooden bench to sit on, ideal for the front garden or as somewhere tucked away for a quick half hour break or a natter with the neighbour. However, just a quick shuffle and fold, and you have a surprise picnic table; the perfect spot for a cup of tea and a slice of cake, and somewhere to accommodate guests who pop round unexpectedly.
The Patio Set
Many of our patio sets come in light stone, basalt, granite and sandstone, and some are polished whilst other are left matte. This particular patio set is a nice decorative piece, with a wood-effect finish. Despite appearances, the set itself is constructed from stone, so will prove more weather-resistant and much longer-lasting than plastic or wood alternatives. It is a patio set in the traditional sense of the word, offering somewhere for people to sit and relax, socialise, or even eat al fresco in warmer months.
The Classic Bench
The Hayworth bench is a stunning granite piece, in a light and airy beige colour, ensuring it will be a feature in any space. Its conventional design, with arms and back, make it a sturdy and classic piece for gardens of any kind. If you need somewhere to read a book, grab a cuppa, or just take in your pretty plants and borders, this bench is ideal. And if stone is a little too sturdy for you to sit on for extended periods? Just add a nice seating pad or cushion.
And…The Novelty
Sometimes, you just want something fun in the garden, but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality. Our small staddlestones look just like toadstools, and they work a treat in outdoor spaces of every kind. A flower-laden cottage garden, a slightly wild woodland retreat, or a neatly manicured patch; these sweet little stones fit right in, and they’ll provide you with a nice little spot to perch when you need five minutes.
Armed with this brief guide to garden seating, you will be able to narrow down your options, based on what you need and want from your garden and your furniture. So think carefully about the purpose, the aesthetics and your own preferences, then use this guide as inspiration whilst you browse our collections.
