Rowlinson make a huge variety of timber garden products so it's only natural that they have three different sized traditional picnic tables on offer, one 4ft long bench suitable for four people, the other 5ft bench for up to six people and a 6ft bench to seat up to eight people!
They are both very sturdy and large enough to accommodate plenty of plates and dishes. The natural timber finish can be painted or stained, and the timber is pressure treated to be rot resistant. A round picnic table has been added to the range with a distinctly individual design as well as a more modern square picnic table.
Also somewhat rustic are the two refectory bench and tables from Forest. These are very substantial, made up from sleeper benches and a refectory type table that can be bought separately, and guaranteed for 15 years. The attractive design of the traditional small picnic table and large rectangular picnic table is sturdy, hardwearing and built to last whether it's located on a patio or on the lawn.
For a more modern approach, Forest has designed a circular picnic table which has seat backs which add a measure of comfort allowing you to enjoy many hours in the garden.
