GardenSite Garden Bench Review & Competition

It’s been a little while since I talked about the garden. This is no doubt because IT HAS BEEN THE LONGEST WINTER EVER!!! But, I am hopeful that spring is now emerging as we have had a handful of warmer sunnier days, which has meant that we have managed to spruce up a little area of the garden with its newest addition, a lovely garden bench thanks to the folks over at GardenSite.

GardenSite has over 12,000 home and garden products available to buy online, from greenhouses to ponds, and from swing sets to planters, they have a huge range on offer and most are available with free delivery, so do take a look around.

A garden bench has been an idea lurking in my mind for ages, and I do mean ages. I was checking a few out at the Gardener’s World show last year but didn’t quite get round to it, and I am pleased I have finally got a bench in situ otherwise I’d be scouring the show again next month looking for one that I like!

We have a little paved area at the top of our garden that was created when we took down some sheds and moved things around up there. It’s just been crying out for some seating, giving it a purpose and creating a usable space for us all.

This is the bench that we have received, the ‘Zest Abbey 3 Seater Bench’.

“A stylish bench with angles and curves, the Abbey 3 Seater Garden Bench is as comfortable as it looks. Traditionally-styled but with contemporary elements, a great deal of thought has gone into the design of this bench. Just the place to relax with friends, or perhaps take a cushion and a good book and lie back in the sunshine. This is a Zest4Leisure product that uses pressure treated timber from managed forests, it comes with a 10 year guarantee.”

And here it is!

It arrived flat-packed and took the Husband around half an hour to assemble it. The instructions were on just two sheets of A4 and easy to follow.

I like the style and it feels chunky and solid. It’s not too heavy to move around, as Boo and I managed to move it together, so it’ll be great for moving in and out of the sunshine to suit us when we spend more time out there in the summer.

We’re really pleased with it, it manages to transform the top of our garden and it’s great looking out of my kitchen window and seeing it. It calls to me to go out there, when I really should be doing things inside! It’s perfectly timed as I plan to be out there gardening and tidying everything up from next week as my university course ends and my time is freed up. I will now start with the top of the garden, weeding the beds and giving the paved area a clean just in time for everything to start flowering. Behind the bench there is a beautiful rambling rose, a bright rhododendron, a couple of peonies and a honeysuckle so it should all look and smell gorgeous in a month or so. Can’t wait!
