The outdoor garden bench is one of the first pieces of outdoor garden furniture that many of us purchase. It is the mainstay of garden seating and should always be chosen with care. There are a few things that should be considered before making a purchase and I want to give a few tips on exactly what to think about before you make a final decision.

You should consider materials carefully. There is a wide range of materials to choose from and you should consider the maintenance of each material before making a purchase. Cast aluminum garden furniture is very durable and is a very good option if you want little in the way of care. Plastic is similar, while not always looking as good it is still a popular choice for those not wishing to spend time caring for the benches they purchase. Wooden garden benches are also a very good choice and hardwoods should always be chosen if you want minimal maintenance.

Never forget the comfort factor. Can it easily accommodate cushions? Will they be needed? For maximum comfort choose a garden bench that will comfortable without the need for cushions. This will make it much easier to use and will see it making you life a little easier. Think about whether or not you would like a deep back or a low one. Personal preference comes in to play here and you should always purchase what you know you will be most comfortable sitting in.

Your outdoor garden bench should last for many years to come if you make the right choice so spend a little time considering the style and choice of materials. Never forget the weight of your choice. If you are someone who likes to move your furniture on a regular basis then consider this before you make your purchase of an outdoor garden bench.
