Guide to Buying the Right Backless Garden Bench

We understand that choosing the right type of garden furniture can be tricky, with many styles and options available to you, however, in this guide we aim to cut out any unnecessary stress and hope to make the decision as easy as possible.

Proactive bench selection tips:

The key to selecting the right backless bench for your garden is contemplative thought and carrying out research, the onus is on you as a prospective buyer to carry out due diligence and plan out your purchase logically and stylistically ahead of time.

Consider your outdoor space

Firstly, you must consider the size and style of the outdoor environment the bench would be put into. Certain sizes/shapes of gardens may present unique challenges or benefits to certain installations.

It’s paramount to be honest in your assessment of the garden or patio in order to best logically inform your decision on which bench would best suit your needs.

Decide the exact location of the bench

You need to measure the size and proxemics of the exact position the bench will be installed in, of course the bench needs to fit, but also you must take into account other features surrounding it.

Think about seat size

Obviously you want your bench to be a place for rest and relaxation while enjoying your garden or outdoor space, therefore you need to consider its potential for seating and how many people can comfortably occupy the bench at any one time.

Consider the bench’s material

The actual material the bench is constructed from may impact your decision as certain materials are naturally more suited to specific environments, also weather conditions may play a factor as some types of benches don’t withstand changing or harsh weather conditions particularly well.

Teak is one of the toughest types of wood; derived from timber, teak has a natural resistance to water, meaning our robustly constructed benches can be left outdoors year round regardless of the weather.

You can purchase with confidence knowing that our smooth finish plantation teak packs a punch!

Benefits of a Teak Backless Bench

A backless bench allows a person to sit upon it in multiple ways, rather than being confined to one sitting position due to the constraint of the back support on a traditional bench.

Backless benches also don’t block sunlight for flower beds behind them, meaning you don’t have to factor in solar trajectory for other garden features or plants.

Another plus point of a backless bench is that they seamlessly adorn the space they occupy, some people find a bench with a back can visually dominate the scenery rather than complement and enhance it.
