As part of one of our most recent garden make-overs in Newbury, our client had requested a seating area at the bottom right hand area of her garden.
A floating bench had been discussed at the design stage as her preference. However, as there was nothing to build a floating bench against – the fence panel not providing the right level of support – we had to rethink the design a little.
With the client’s agreement, I decided the best solution was to build a bespoke oak bench, made to fit perfectly in the space allocated in the plan for the seating area.
The seat of the bench is made from seasoned oak and makes a comfortable and smooth surface to sit on. The client was delighted with the finished bench and it actually ties in very well with the other wooden elements in the garden such as the pergola.
We hope to add this garden as a featured project once work has been completed and the planting established a little – watch this space!
