There are a few things to consider before buying a patio bench, such as the type of material it is made from. Wood and stone are the most common. Outdoor benches
can be made from many different types of wood, with pine, cedar, or teak benches more popular. One thing to consider when choosing a wooden bench is the climate. Cold or rainy climates require something that is more durable, like red cedar.
Within these years, the market prefers to some new materials for the outdoor patio furniture including the garden benches, such as plastic wood, plastic-steel and aluminum alloy slats instead of the wood or plastic. The new materials can be recycled, easily maintained and long lasting. Such materials are always used for the outdoor benches in the park, square and shopping mall, but not so common for the garden seats.
Plastic wood is one of the most commonly used kinds of the above materials, because it is available in various designs and is more affordable than any other kind. They are also weather resistant and therefore, can be used in all types of climate, and can be used either indoors or outdoors. You will never have to worry about mold, mildew, rotting, rust, or any such problems, that are commonly seen if they are not cleaned every once in a while. Also, it needs not be cleaned frequently. Just dusting it can make it look shiny.
