Disappointing

Was bought the bench as a present, first one arrived on time but was split, the company kindly agreed to replace, but when that one also arrived split I gave up, too embarrassed to complain again, so if you want a quality product, best look elsewhere.

Looks amazing

I wanted a bench like this and found that this supplier was the cheapest. It looks amazing. It does have a green tinge to it at the moment but I am really pleased about this because it means it has preservative on it (it may even have been tanalised) and will last for years. It was easy to put up, my husband put it together on his own. I am looking forward to it weathering over the winter and looking more like our decking.

Looked nice but soon began to split

At first, I was very pleased with the bench which is easy to assemble. After two weeks it began to split. Now 2-3 months later it is badly split and I hope it does not get any worse. Hence my three star rating

Looks like it will last for years

It looks good and is very sturdy and I think it's more useful than a bench as you can sit on it in Summer and us it to display pots in Winter.

Bit disappointed

Was extremely green when it arrived and it looked as though whatever had turned it green (preservative?) might rub off on clothing after rain. It was also unsightly. So we sanded it and painted it black to match other black-painted structures in the garden and now looks excellent. Also there were no instructions of how to assemble but it was reasonably simple to figure out.

The product itself is of a good standard. it did require some minor self assembly but this does not cause too much inconvenience. The bench looks good and is very sturdy in structure.

Happy with the product and it is what it says it is. I must also comment on how helpful and how efficient the staff at the garden centre are. They responded promptly and customer service was very good.

Alison (Holmhills Park) Asked:

This garden sleeper bench looks strong but would it be ok to place in an informal urban community park? Also, is it possible to concrete it in for security and, if so, how could this be done by volunteers?

We Replied:

Dear Alison Thank you for your question. We would suggest you also looked at the Double Sleeper Bench /Garden_Furniture/Double_Sleeper_Bench_18m_by_Forest_Garden.htm For greater stability if siting in a community park, we would recommend securing the bench to the ground either with a bracket to a solid surface or some form of metal shoe which could be concreted but you would need to use anti-tamper screws to fix. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards David Coton
