SITTING PRETTY ON
A GARDEN BENCH
If you’re lucky enough to have some outdoor space, make the most of it with garden furniture
Whether you have a football-pitch-sized lawn, a compact courtyard or bijou balcony, now more than ever it’s worth making some gardening effort, and garden furniture lays the groundwork for your very own outdoor idyll. Patios, courtyards and balconies call for a garden seat surrounded by terracotta pots filled with highly scented herbs, such as lavender, mint and lemon balm, creating a sensory mini kitchen garden. Green-fingered goddesses should locate their garden bench in a sunny spot by a fence and train climbing plants – from roses or clematis to sweet peas or bougainvillea – over the top to create a canopy of foliage and beautiful blooms. The perfect outdoor escape, whatever the weather.
