Adding a garden bench to your patio, garden, gazebo or in front of a garden pond or fountain will give you a place to sit and languish the day away. Garden benches are typically made of cedar, pine or wrought iron. Wooden benches with wrought iron accents are also very popular.

Garden potting benches are also popular for those with green thumbs. Potting benches are simple, backless benches with potting boxes situated at either end. Prices for wooden garden benches will differ depending on the type of wood used in its construction. For example a slat-backed cedar garden bench is approximately $200 online; while a teak garden bench in the same design will cost upwards of $500. Wrought iron garden benches cost anywhere from $450 to $800 online, depending on the detail.
