Vertical Gardens

This trend is becoming increasingly popular this summer with beautiful and imaginative vertical gardens popping up all over the UK. Not only does this design give more texture and creativity to gardens but it’s also a fantastic idea when you have limited outdoor space. If you are wanting to design an original vertical garden get in touch with your design brief: sales@teakgardenfurniture.co.uk

 The unique bench that was created for the BALI show garden at Harrogate Spring Flower show 2014 now has a new home at Crimple Hall in Harrogate. This Solid Oak bench was hand crafted in Britain using the finest Oak and has a length of just over 2m.

We look forward to visiting the bench and watching it age gracefully over the next few years. 

If you would like to take a seat and test the quality of the wood we use and also the bench itself come visit Crimple Hall and let us know what you think.

Memorial Benches

When choosing a Memorial Bench you will always have complete control of how you would like your bench to be. We believe in the personal touches, if you have made the decision to buy a Memorial Bench as a tribute to a loved one you will have complete control of how your bench will look when it is finished. 

Can’t find exactly what you’re looking for?

Your bench should reflect the person that youa rere wanting to pay tribute to. If you have been searching for the perfect bench but just can’t seem to find it let us help you. If you have seen one of our benches that you like but you would prefer if it was adapted slightly, we can do that for you. As we hand make our benches we have the ability to create just about anything that you desire.

Personalised Touches

 Now you have chosen the style of bench that you and your family would like, you may also want to consider what type of wood you would like your bench to be created from. As standard we offer a choice of Teak, Oak or Iroko. However if you have a piece of wood that you would like to be added to the bench we can also do that for you. The benches range from 2 seaters up to 5 seaters, and can either be designed for you to sit up right or relax into.

Want a bench that stands out?

 Teak and Oak benches are traditional and rustic colours that can be left alone to age gracefully. However if you want to stand out from the rest you can opt to have your bench painted in any colour you require, be it a vintage white or even bright pink, the choices are endless if you opt for an Iroko tribute bench.

I want a bench with a message

 There are two options to show your message to the rest of the world. You can either choose to have you message engraved into the bench, either on the top rail or bottom rail. However if the message you want to be shown is slightly more wordy, opting for a Brass plaque may be the better option.

Be in control of what you want and call us today to discuss: 01429 890808

What is Teak?

Teak is a tropical hardwood that is found extensively in South East Asia, it is one of the most popular woods for furniture making. Natural beauty and elegance are the two basic reasons for such popularity.  

Seen some real bargains out there... whats the catch?

The catch is that the furniture you are buying is grade C Teak. If the price of the furniture is too good to be true, then there is a reason for it. Some hide the grade by using chemicals on the timber and others don't even bother doing that assuming you won't know the difference anyway. Grade A Teak furniture is expensive to buy.  As an example, if you have seen a 8 seater Teak garden furniture set for under £1500 i can guarantee the set is made from Grade C Teak. Yes it will look fine for the first year but after that you will start seeing the inherent problems with such sets as they rear their ugly heads, rickerty, weak joints, warped tabletops and rot.

But they have some great reviews online, their furniture can't be that bad?

9/10 reviews are given immediately after the purchase and not a year later. If you could go back to these people who buy on ebay or Amazon  and ask how their £700 8 seater Teak garden set is doing a year after they bought it and the answer will be completely different.

So how do i know who to try and buy from?

That depends on what you really want. If you want a real piece of furniture which you will be able to pass on to your children/ grandchildren then the only way to be sure is to stick with the main manufacturers in the Uk. We.  for example offer a 15 year guarantee to show our commitment to our products. As we have been in business for nearly 100 years, it's a guarantee that we can commit to. We actually hand make our furniture here in Britain rather than import it. 

What would you rather do, spend £700 on a set that you will need to replace every couple of years, or buy our furniture that will last you a lifetime of enjoyment?

Our Solid Teak and Oak furniture is designed to be kept uncovered outdoors in all weathers. Over time our furniture will age and turn a stunning silver colour. Many people who own a piece of our furniture love the rustic natural colours that come with time, however if you prefer your furniture to maintain looking like new we would advise cleaning and oiling your furniture once a year. The colour change will not affect the structure of the bench and you will be able to enjoy the different spectrum of colours and your bench for decades to come.
