Video: Garden Benches
Furniture placed in the garden gives it originality and increases comfort
The landscape of your site will not be complete if there are no places where you can sit, relax, admire beautiful flower beds or a pond. Garden benches or chairs come in very handy for this task.
Benches can be decorative and simple, the main thing is that they should be made of attractive and durable materials, be comfortable and match the style of the garden.
Comfort and style. When purchasing a seat or making it yourself, pay attention to its comfort. Sit on a bench and see how you feel on it. Pay attention to the presence of a slight tilt of the backrest so that rainwater can drain off, and you can sit reclined. Sit deep enough for your thighs to feel supported and high enough for your feet to be flat on the ground. The back of the seat should support your shoulder blades and back. Sturdy handrails enhance the chair's comfort.
Make sure that the seat is well made and that there are no protruding screws or other protruding bumps that could rip your clothing or injure you. The wooden parts of the bench must be smooth, free of cracks and burrs.
The location of the bench. The benches are installed in the most attractive location. The seating position, the position of the bench, chair or chair - everything matters. For example, it can be placed among a herbaceous garden or closer to fragrant flowers with a delightful smell that you can enjoy, as well as watch the lively activity of bees. It is good if the bench is located at the end of a long path. Guests will appreciate the opportunity to relax after a hike in the garden. If you have a very beautiful corner in your garden, then a bench or an armchair will also be useful there, so that you yourself and your loved ones or your guests can linger and enjoy the comfort, can contemplate the surrounding nature. Secluded, hidden areas of the garden also need a seat to dream in peacefully.
Think about how you should place your furniture in the garden so that its position provides the desired rest for people.
Tables and chairs are elements of the country dining room - they are a must for your garden. A good place for a dining room will give a special accent to the garden. Sufficiently voluminous tables can provide a place for several people to eat. But a cozy table for two is not excluded. Extendable or extendable tables are temporarily resized. Dine at these tables, you will enjoy both food and contemplation of the beauty of your garden.
Local furniture adds value to the landscape. The different regions of the country are characterized by their specific furniture styles. In one region, for example, local wooden chairs are preferred. In another, cast chairs are often found. Often, in the manufacture of garden furniture, rural motives and various materials at hand are used: logs, beams, ceramics. This gives it an original style.
In an informal garden, you can make a unique seat from whatever material you find on your farm - a slab, a stone slab, or a cut trunk, laid horizontally or fixed in the soil. Beautiful benches are made of metal. They have a permanent silver-gray color in any weather. The seat, carved in stone, stands out. Painted furnishings also add a touch of charm to the garden. You just need to think carefully about which color will be better in harmony with the environment.
Now in many regions of our country, including in the Leningrad region, furniture made of wicker is very popular in summer cottages. The vine has long been used for the manufacture of various household crafts: tables, sofas, armchairs and chairs. Each region has its own forms of vine products, their favorite weaving techniques. But they have a common quality - they are uniquely beautiful and easy to use. In rainy weather and for the winter, wicker furniture can be easily removed from the garden to the shelter.
The choice of furniture options is large, everyone, as they say, chooses for himself.
