Garden Benches - Perfect For A Garden Getaway

Mar 26, 2008
Now that things are warming up outside, you may think it's time to reclaim your yard and enjoy what nature has to offer. Garden benches may well be a part of this complete garden getaway equation.

First you need to decide where in your back yard is best to enjoy natures beauty. There is often one spot that is perfect for garden benches. This is a place where you can watch birds and other animals at play in your yard. This will likely be the place where your garden getaway will be created.

You should start with garden benches. If this is going to be a sitting place in the yard, the most important thing is a good place to sit. Garden benches come in a number of styles and designs, and can be found to fit any theme you want to create. If you would like an older Victorian style look, you may want to look for cement garden benches that look as if they could have come out of a Victorian garden and been placed in your backyard.

If you want a charming country escape, you may want to consider wicker garden benches to set the theme and give you a place to kick back and sip a tall glass of lemonade.

Once the garden benches have been chosen for your backyard getaway, it's time to make sure you have the rest of the environment created. What will be best to have around your garden benches?

Look up.

Is there shade over your head? If the spot you have chosen is under a tree or other shade, you may not need to worry about this, but if not, the sun could be a major annoyance when it is beating down on you hour after hour. If this is the case, you should look into possible shade providers such as a gazebo, a table with an umbrella or even hanging shade cloths.

Next, look around your garden benches. While it's nice to have a place to sit, what other furniture items will you need? Unless you want to hold that glass of lemonade the entire time you are outside, you will need a table to sit at. If you want a matched set, you may want to consider this as you purchase your garden benches and see if you can find a set that includes a table.

Finally, think of the kinds of accents you will need around your garden benches. While it's nice to look at the greenery in your yard, if you want even more green space or to enjoy a few extra flowers, you may want to place planters and topiaries around your garden benches. If you are going to enjoy this area at night, think of lighting options that will work, but not clash with the space. Don't forget to consider extra-special features like fountains and arbors if you really want to dress up the space to make it a creation that is all your own.
