Rugged Benches for Tough Environments

Rugged Benches for Tough Environments

We often get asked by customers if our porch swings, swing beds, and stand-alone benches can cope in tough environments and harsh climates. As you might expect, it depends on the material, whether it is outdoor-ready furniture. Our garden benches are mostly handcrafted from a wide variety of materials such as natural wood and synthetic lumber, including our extremely durable recycled plastic benches that are made from eco-friendly poly lumber.

The ones made of natural wood are either innately durable and strong, so they can be relied upon to be left outdoors or went through a treatment process to prepare for some sun and rain exposure.

So, which heavy duty bench do we suggest for harsh environments? Well, here are a few. One of the current favorites made from this material is the 5′ Poly Grandpa Swing. This bench and the entire Hershy Way range are built to last.

Enjoy the outdoors from your porch's comfort delightfully floating and swinging. This weather-resistant swing is ideal for outdoor use, proudly American-made, and crafted from all-weather and maintenance-free recycled plastic.

Have a seat, and enjoy the day with this quality Amish glider. Durable, charming, and soothing, knot-free glider features a royal curved top on its backrest with a gently contoured seat.
