Decorative Wooden Benches for Your Yard & Home

Updated on August 18, 2014

Outdoor Wooden Benches, Gliders and Storage Benches

After we moved into our home the first thing we did outdoors was to get the yard and gardens in order.

When the job was complete we noticed that we didn't have any place to sit down and enjoy the scenery. That's when we began our search for outdoor wooden benches.

We wanted a more natural look and liked that the wooden benches seemed one with nature. Wooden benches in the way of gliders, storage planters and park benches were what we chose for our new beautiful gardens.

You will find a good selection of outdoor wooden benches, gliders, storage seats and flowerbox planters here as well as children's benches.

      @Sylvestermouse: My husband said the same thing when I put a pic of one on my FB page. It was from a place we visited last week and I just loved the setting.

      I love glider benches, and if I were planning a garden today, I would definitely take a look at the wooden one featured here. I also enjoy planter benches and benches made of stone.

      Wow ... I see many benches here that I'd love to put in my own garden. We have several outdoor seating areas, but mostly for the cats to use while they power nap throughout the day.

      I used to be a carpenter and joiner and Dot would expect me to make one of these rather than buying one. Not much chance of that. There is some really nice and highly skilled wood work here. I love this lens and could almost smell the wood.

      Very attractive selection of benches. It's great to sit in the garden relaxing after pulling weeds and watering. A bench gives you a place to pause and admire what you have created.
