The Perfect Anniversary Gift

Balmoral Bench

Are you and your siblings fighting over what to get your mum and dad for their anniversary? Why not look at a one of our Garden Benches to commemorate their special occasion?

We can offer engraving or inscriptions services as well delivery on the day you want. Most of our benches are suitable for anniversaries but the ones that really stand out for us are our Lutyens and Balmoral collections, strong, aesthetically pleasing and above all else comfortable.

The Balmoral garden bench has a third leg in the centre of the bench providing extra support while the Lutyens benches all have the iconic curved back akin to the work of the famous architect himself.

A bench can become a feature of your parent’s garden and somewhere to wallow away the afternoon with a good book or somewhere for your mum to sneak off for a gin and tonic while dad is watching the cricket in the conservatory.

Teak is such a wonderful material to work with. Hard and durable yet maintains its own unique properties in being a very moist hard wood. The moisture within the Teak is what acts as a lubricant throughout its life time.

Teak oil is available to purchase separately and we would recommend one a year going over the balmoral bench with a paint brush and pot of oil. Unless oil is applied regularly the teak will mature with age and go a light grey colour. This in no way affects the structural integrity of our benches but shows the maturity of the wood that has been exposed to the elements.

We have supplied places such as Arundel castle with our teak benches as well as the National Memorial Arboretum in nearby Alrewas. We are very proud of the work we have done with local councils as well as privately owned businesses. Hopefully this shows that the quality of our regulated benches is second to none and that we can cater for any requirement.

If you are considering a bench for your parents or relatives then feel free to give us a call on 01283 722722 and speak to one of our experts regarding what type of bench will be best suited. We have some benches that are delivered flat-packed and other that come assembled with our two man team. We can cater for most requirements (and strange requests).

As a family run business since 1989 there are not many requests that shock us so please feel free to give us a bell and test us out! One thing is for sure, if you are stuck what to get mum and dad for that special occasion then please look no further and let us work with you to ensure that the surprise they get is one that will leave a happy memory in the years to come.
