garden bench and plants

Good morning,

I haven't found an attractive all weather garden bench yet. Also, what plants can I put in each side of the bench? I love receiving ideas from other gardeners!

Have a wonderful day,

My garden bench, on our island, and it's only pvc, although it's been reinforced underneath as concrete statues, are extremely heavy..

Hi Karen- I'm in MA also, and I know what you're asking. I have had good luck at "antique" stores, one in Holliston in particular. Also, at the Brimfield fair there is a vendor who has loads of really gorgeous, high quality garden items, mostly made from stone. Let me know if you want the name and address of the store in Holliston. Also, garden shops have some nice options. Good luck!

I put an island between my house and my neighbors. I put 2 benches in it. 1 facing her house and 1 facing mine. We both have a dog that we take out between the 2 houses.

Here's another view:

Awww; what a lovely island, yard and dog! And how thoughtful of you. :)

I was at a friend's house the other day, and she has the nicest little bench on her deck. Someone made it, it's not like in the pics above, it's just flat, with no back, but has built in planters on both sides...I really like it. I took a picture of it, hubby is pretty crafty, and I'd like him to build me one!
