Tucked beneath a vine-covered pergola and behind a wrought-iron gate, this bench offers the essence of a secret garden. The plants and pergola also offer shady sun relief during warmer months.
Plan the Patio
Deliberate patio or paver design can deliniate your sitting area and play off the shape and design of your bench. A circular patio defined by a brick border plays off the curved back of this bench and accompanying accent chairs.
Inspiration in the Garden
Tucked in one corner of the garden, a Lutyens-style bench gives the homeowners a spot to sit and reflect. With flowers and fresh greenery all around, they'll have no shortage of inspiration.
Unpainted wooden benches complement tree trunks and stone walkways, helping them to blend naturally into the surrounding garden.
Vertical landscaping makes a tropical oasis out of this outdoor bench. Lanterns are a romantic lighting choice.
Circular Garden Bench
This built-in, circular garden bench puts focus on the tree. Built-in furniture is an effective way to take advantage of space available. It helps avoid clutter and solves problems of storing furniture, since it can be enjoyed all year.
Shade Garden Bench
Color can have more impact on the landscape than any other design element. A bright red bench provides sharp contrast in this lush garden by HGTV fan nwphillygardener.
