Teak garden furniture Swing seats and benches
Teak garden furniture is special at the best of times, but a swing seat or bench is a piece of furniture that will really stand out
When it comes to teak garden furniture there can be nothing more relaxing than swinging gently in the sun, reading a good book. Similarly, a seat on a solid teak bench admiring your garden is hard to beat.
If you’re thinking about buying a teak swing seat or bench, make sure that you consider the best place to position the furniture before it is delivered to your front door. It’s likely to be very heavy – especially if it is made from 100% class 1 teak – and you don’t want to have to keep moving it. So, figure out the right place for it, put it in position and leave it there.
Where you position your teak garden furniture depends on a number of things. You might be an early riser who likes to bask in the morning sun, or you may prefer to put it in a place where it’s going to get the sun for the majority of the day. If you don’t want to be in full sun, of course, the advantage of a swing seat is that it comes with its own shade in the form of a canopy. If you have a garden with a great view, it would be a good idea to position the bench or swing seat when you can enjoy the view to its full advantage.
The style and size of the swing seat or bench you choose is important, too. Think about the number of people you want them to seat at any one time. A small outside space, will put limits on how large the furniture can be, but equally you don’t want it to dominate the area, so be realistic about what you can fit in.
