When I was a little girl I would visit my grandparents in the summer holidays. My granny had the most amazing garden to the front of her house. With beautiful flower beds, rose bush archway and a lawn that I could only ever dream of achieving. In front of the window was a wooden garden bench which she would sit on whilst the grandchildren played. I think this was partly to keep an eye on us, but mostly so we didn’t destroy her beautiful garden.
Living in a small village all the neighbours would be in their front gardens. Whether they were doing some gardening, watching the grandchildren play or just chatting amongst themselves. I remember those summers with such fond memories. Finally having a garden of our own, I knew that I wanted to add a garden bench in there as a place to watch the children, to read a book or just soak up the Vitamin D.

Winchester Single Oval Back Teak Garden Bench // Thoughts…
Our garden is positioned to the side of our house rather than to the back. With a large wall to one side to deflect the road noise and protect us against the wind. When it came to placing the wooden garden bench in the garden we tried it in various places before deciding upon the middle of the garden wall. It has the best views of the garden, it becomes shaded in the afternoons and it within easy reach of the trampoline and playhouse should one of the children decide to take a tumble.
Measuring 150cm wide it is a substantial bench, made from high-quality teak – this really shows when you come to assemble the bench, with amazing attention to detail on the joints. The swooping curved back gives it more of a relaxed feel, making it somewhere that is welcoming you to sit – rather than a traditional straight backed bench that feels formal. Due to the size of the bench, we can all just squeeze on. However, as the children grow they will be slowly relegated to the garden chairs.
