The humble garden bench: it can be as traditional as seen in the image above. Or modern yet refined. Or unusual and ingenious. In our latest blog post, we look at a few examples that fit any of the aforementioned categories.

A garden bench with storage space

From The Instructables website, this ingenious option should be considered if space comes at a premium. According to the instructions, it is easy enough for a child to build. Forget that statement; it is easier to let a carpenter do it for you.

From pallets to garden furniture

The Freckles and Fluff website has a neat tutorial, where you can turn pallets into garden furniture. This inexpensive way of upcycling offers you a neat alternative to purchased garden furniture. We at Steven Cleary Carpentry can also work with recycled wood as well as fresh timber.

A garden love seat

We love this garden bench from Home-Dzine due to its low rise nature and curves. If your ideal bench is like this one, Steven Cleary and his team can make that possible.

A garden bench from railway sleepers

Take a look at Les Mable’s project from This bench, apart from being made with railway sleepers, includes raised beds. Another ingenious design for smaller gardens and one we could turn to, if it takes your fancy.
