How Seating Helps To Define A Mood In The Garden

– Posted in: Garden Design

The seating you choose for your garden is a reflection of the mood you’re trying to create.

Everything from a simple bench to an artistic or architectural piece makes a statement or suggestion.

Here are photos of some of my favorites:

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN. What type of seating do you have in your garden? What’s the most extraordinary piece you’ve ever seen that you would love to have in your garden?
