Choosing a location
Benches are intended for recreation, so should be located on different parts of the garden.
- at the entrance to the house;
- along or in the end of the garden paths;
- on the outdoor veranda, terrace;
- pool, pond or alpine garden;
- near the playground.
Looks nice bench on the lawn, but it is notalways easily accessible, if the grass is wet after rain or wet with dew. In addition, the area should be planted with grass, resistant to permanent loads.
Bench in a remote corner under treesIt allows escape from the scorching rays of the sun and the rest of the work, to read, just sit in silence. If the garden is still quite young, it is necessary to provide for a tent, awning, pergola. But in an open area you can soak up the sunshine in early spring and get vitamin D deficient portion, depleted during the long winter.
Design becomes a decorative elementlandscape design and perform its direct functional purpose, therefore it is necessary to take into account the relief. Moreover, the smooth surface does not necessarily choose. Doing bench to give his own hands or by order, determine the criteria are the convenient location and beautiful appearance.
The architectural style of the house and other buildingsdetermines the shape and color of the design. Large investments job requires, if you give your imagination run wild and wisely use the available material. But it is necessary to consider that for a comfortable accommodation of an adult height of the legs, the back and the depth of the seat should be 40-50 cm.
Examples of drawing summer benches
Environmental friendliness and comfort
Most often used wood (more durablehardwoods). The material is easy to process, opens up wide possibilities for the realization of fantasy ideas, has a long service life when covered with a protective layer against rodents, insects and rot. Due to their naturalness, they perfectly fit into any style. And tools for making everyone has a good host:
- a hammer,
The easiest way you can construct your own, but for more complicated is better to use a professional drawing.
Important! When making the portable model is necessary to monitor the observance of all sizes, because even a small misalignment is able to disrupt the smooth design position. Then it will swing bench. And in a stationary version of small inaccuracies easily cemented smooth legs.
A real find is a table with benches. The design can be made monolithic. But then it is better to choose a place that will become permanent for it, because it moved around the site a bulky structure is difficult. Another disadvantage is that the shop can not be closer to the table to move, or conversely, to push, if necessary.
As a material suitable for not onlyplaned smooth boards and bars, but also ordinary logs. The original design will "highlight" of landscape design. Picking appropriate additional items, you can make a kind of a separate corner.
For a rustic style are ideal benches hewn in a log or a large stump. The final touch will be a wood carving, chiseled features.
Mobility and economy
The most convenient option is a mobileplastic models. They can be purchased complete with a table, or separately for installation in any location (hide in the shade in the summer and in the fall to move to the open area), clean the house or farm building to the next visit, and take with you on a fishing trip or a walk in the woods. Plastic benches to give do not require special care. Their enough to wipe with a damp cloth or simply to pour water from a hose.
Only now plastic - brittle material, anddamage it quite easily. Exceptions are expensive models, which are able to withstand heavy loads, exposure to the scorching sun and torrential rain.
The stark beauty
Stone construction in the country is not very convenient, butgive the site a kind of mystery. Sit on a bench only in the warm season, when it is not exposed to direct sunlight, otherwise the seat will be very hot.
This durable construction, made ofcoarse-grained granite, marble, quartzite. But they are expensive, so seldom installed. And from the rough stone can build a great bench for the garden with his own hands. To do this, simply selected the stones in the surrounding area. Beautiful and comfortable bench will in combination with wood.
Large boulders are almost of the same sizedeepened into the ground so that the edge of the seat were at the same height. Small stones are held together with cement mortar. You can make the basis of the fittings or parts for maximum stability.
Exclusive "furniture" is obtained if the stones put the seat forms a comfortable and totally conceal his lawn turf.
Quite different are metal benchesin the country. In some models, you can see the fine lace, the work of painstaking mistress, or a butterfly that is ready is about to fly up upwards. Others resemble bulky industrial design, from which just blows cold.
Metal bench suitable for year-rounduse because of its durability and resistance to natural disasters, but in the garden it looks quite rough (if not exclusive version), and sit on it uncomfortable. It is very hot in the sun and gets cold at low temperatures. Moreover, there is absolutely no difference - made metal bench for the garden with his own hands or ordered by an experienced master.
But do not just give up this option. Firstly, for the production of a simple model of welded enough way to connect corners or fittings (combine them). Beautifully will look bench, which bokovinki pass through the archway. Nearby you can plant vines, pull the fabric tent. And for convenience and aesthetics to buy or sew cushions for the seat and backrest.
It is worth considering! Textile products must be secured to the base of the bench strap provided in advance, otherwise they will move out.
The ideal situation can be called a combination ofmetal and wood. Forged items become a real gem of the product and the surrounding area and wooden seat provides comfort in any season. But the forged elements can perform only a master.
Excellent look bench on a metal base, seat and back are made of rattan. Much cheaper cost model of its artificial counterpart.
Aesthetics and comfort
You can make a bench in a rocking chair or swing. This will give the model is not only the individual, but also will provide additional comfort for travelers.
A bench of any material becomes the mainelement of recreation areas, so ennoble the area around it is essential. Prior to manufacture of the product can provide capacity for a bed or decorative elements from scrap materials.
Important! When planting flowers near it is necessary to take account of their flavor. Pronounced fragrance can adversely affect the well-being of vacationer.
But textile products in any quantityIt will not be superfluous. This comfort will appreciate not only adults, but young vacationers. Little restless pleasure to play in this area, always being in the field of view of adults.
Be sure to provide the lighting, because to go toHouse does not want to, and after dark. If the bench with a table form a dining group, it is more convenient to place the lights higher. A grace freestanding models emphasize the backlight, located close to the ground. These may be portable lights, then easily adjust brightness.
Regardless of the number of beds in the country, allstill becomes the main seating area in the landscape design. And by using the correct location of benches and construction of the territory around them easily create a paradise.
