The best gardens are those which not only offer a feast to the eye of the onlooker but it should also provide space and furniture to sit and enjoy. People sit in a garden to relax, to chat with family members and friends, to watch the cornucopia of colors and patterns created by beautiful and smiling flowers, and to contemplate on life and so many other things. Therefore, the best sitting seats are to be placed at strategic points to make a garden truly enjoyable.
Strong Garden seats to weather the weather
Garden seats are always exposed to the open. Whether the hot and bright sun blazes down upon the garden and bakes everything, or the incessant rain pummels the place and batters everything, or the harsh winter grips the place like a wise, like a strong tree, the garden seat should endure all the treatment given by Mother Nature. It is important to choose a seat that would withstand all sorts of inclement weather. Concrete benches can be the best choice but it is in no way equal to a wooden seat in giving the comfort and feel while sitting for a long period. Steel can be a viable option but it is always cold to the touch and makes one uncomfortable. Plastic can be a wise choice but it will not be a suitable one for long stay. Plastic gets up heated quickly and one cannot sit on it during hot summer afternoons.
Seats are available in all sizes. It can accommodate between two and five people. There are also single seats which are generally foldable and usually come under the category of garden chairs. There are seats with curvy back rests which offer cuddling while sitting. There are also seats with straight backs that give a sturdy feel when a person sits on it. Seats with and without arm rests are available that allows the person to rest the arms. Even though there are benches made of plain sheets of metal or wood or concrete, seats with bars are preferred. Seats made of horizontal bars not only offer comfortable seating, they also allow dirt and other objects like dry leaves to fall through which provides clean place for sitting.
A garden is the best when it relaxes the mind and spreads pleasure and happiness even in a tired mind. The green leaves, yellow and red and blue and all those multicolored flowers should lift a person and make his or her spirit soar up in the sky. When one watches the birds sing and dance in the branches of the trees, when butterflies flutter around the buds and flowers to suckle honey, when bees drone along, it is always pleasing and pleasant scenery. And the best seats should be provided to watch such scenes full of life and beauty.
