Concrete provides the ideal and perfect seating solution that is both comfortable and affordable. Garden benches are also at times made of concrete. The most outstanding feature about concrete benches lies in their versatility.
The various materials used for making of concrete benches vary from wood to stone. Concrete garden benches are very diverse, as they come in a variety of shapes and colors. As a result, people can chose from a wider range of concrete garden benches to suit both their tastes and budgetary needs.
Any material that is hard and durable can be used for making concrete garden benches. Simple pieces of scrap lumber, well placed logs, bags of cement, sand and gravel or simply an old plank can all function as garden benches. Usually log garden benches look much better in gardens as they have a natural look, while steel or brushed aluminum benches do not fit well with the surroundings of a garden. Low tech garden benches that are not too elegant and exquisite, usually look the best in gardens as they fit in completely with the natural look of the gardens. They are also more comfortable than the high-tech ones as they are made of natural materials.
A very simple concrete garden bench can be constructed with easily available things like pieces of driftwood, old planks, squared logs or a couple of concrete blocks. These pieces when put together make a wonderful and comfortable concrete bench. As these materials are easily available and are not very expensive, such concrete garden benches are also very affordable. Another important feature about garden benches is that they can be built at home by people who are not professional carpenters. However, for those looking for a rich-look, stones like marble and granite can provide a lovely option for a garden bench. One mostly finds such settings in Indian or Arabic style gardens.
