Spend more time outside this year. A park bench can quickly transform even the most modest outdoor space into a comfortable and welcoming environment. Available in a wide range of styles and sizes, you can find outdoor seating that works in any size space.
Choose Your Material
Benches are available in a variety of materials, each with its own advantages. Recycled plastic park benches are made of durable planks that resist fading and cracking. Available in a variety of colors, they can add a modern look to your landscape. They’re also typically built on a welded steel frame using weather-resistant hardware.
Metal park benches come in many different styles. A steel bench is usually coated in thermoplastic, which offers a safe, smooth texture and UV protection and also resists cutting. They can even be repaired using a heat gun.
You can find a smaller steel model to fit just about any corner of your yard. Look for a powder-coated frame to ensure it stands up to the elements.
Build Your Own
If you prefer a wooden bench with a custom flair, you can make your own in just a few hours. One option for a DIY park bench is building an outdoor sofa with armrests. Customize the look with the stain of your choice, and add some outdoor cushions to create your own unique rest stop.
