What Satisfied Customers Are Saying

Looks great
By Tina from NATICK,MA on 5/29/2015
Only had this a few days - but it assembled easily and fit all my stuff on the deck. What more could you want? Verdict is out on how waterproof it is but it looks pretty tight.
Aluminum Arched Back Bench
By RobertT from Valdosta,GA on 5/28/2015
The Aluminum Antique Copper Arched Back Bench is exactly what was needed to finish the setting at my back door. It looks great on basketweave brick in front of a white picket fence. Next to the bench is an large antique black pot with large planter of red geraniums on top. It was received timely and was very easy to put together - like 10 to 15 minutes. And the price was right. Thanks Hayneedle !
Well Built
By Paul from Shepherdstown,WV on 5/28/2015
For the price, this deck box is a good buy. It came well packaged without any damage even though it is heavy. Took only 15 minutes to fully assemble it. It's very attractive and replaces an ugly plastic one that we were using. We wanted something on our side deck for UPS to deliver pacages to keep them safe and dry. The box is not entirely weather-proof as it does have slats for side panels and bottom. I recommend using an portable drill for assembly but it does come with a hex wrench if you need one (the screws have a hex head not a phillips head. My only grip, and it's my fault, is that it is a little small. I wish it were about 50% larger, but I'm happy with my purchase. I hope the wood lasts a long time as I hate plastic. I also used angle brackets to fasten it to the desk so that it will stay in place.
Memorial Bench
By DonAndMary from LakeCity,SD on 5/27/2015
The carving in the bench is beautiful and easily read. The color and the bench is very attractive in any garden. The only reason for not giving the bench a five star is because the legs are glued with Gorilla Glue. I followed the instructions and waited the 72 hours. Upon placing the bench in place, one of the legs fell off. My husband bought something different to glue the leg on. Wish the bench bolted together.

Benched for the Season: Find the Perfect Outdoor Bench

When it comes to outdoor benches, the word "multi-tasking" comes to mind. Today's savvy consumer/home stylist/mom/executive/(add your many roles here) demands more than just a bench to drag outside when the weather's warm. The latest in outdoor benches not only offer myriad style options, but also they'll work hard for you. Read on to learn about trends, tips, and tasks related to this type of outdoor seating ...

In a Material World

First, consider what the bench is made of, and what will work best in your climate. According to Hayneedle senior buyer James Goddard, wood still reigns supreme, but it's best for seasonal use and should be treated yearly with linseed oil or other such protectants to keep it in good shape. The best woods for weathering the elements include cedar, cypress, shorea, acacia and teak. These wood types are best at resisting rot and insects, and all of them age well.

For rugged durability and outdoor benches you can leave outside in any weather, concrete and stone are, of course, lifetime pieces perfect for a permanent spot in your outside space. Many are engravable.

Also consider recycled plastic. Not only is it a green, mindful choice, but you wouldn't believe how realistic today's plastic designs look. Whether resin wicker or cedar-lookalike Adirondack benches, recycled plastic is maintenance-free. Just hose it off season after season.

Trending: Task Masters and Tradition

Goddard says that dual-purpose, outdoor storage benches and deck boxes are super popular as well as stylish. Wood benches with flip-up tops are perfect for storing and protecting brightly colored cushions so hot right now, plus bocce balls, badminton, or books ... whatever your summer fancy. These multi-taskers are great solutions for small outdoor spaces, too.

Another trend is outdoor benches made for specific locations, such as tree benches, which – you guessed it – surround the base of a tree, or firepit benches curved or straight to match the latest designs in firepit sets.

By far the most popular, according to Goddard, remain traditional wood benches. Warm, comfortable, and often with a hint of Secret Garden ambience, a well-made wooden bench always invites you to take a seat.
