Our wooden garden and memorial benches all reflect our desire for perfection. Beauty and longevity are combined in an investment that will last for many years to come.
Handmade to order in the Cotswolds from the finest materials, traditional mortise and tenon joints are used throughout. Each perfectly finished element of the bench is designed, developed and created by the skilled and time-served Oxford Planters team.
Recognising that every customer and outdoor space is unique, we will build your bench in either hand selected FSC-accredited oak or iroko. The natural finish will silver gracefully in the years ahead. Alternatively, an exceptionally durable Accoya-built bench will be coated flawlessly to your exact colour specification. Our bespoke memorial benches also offer the opportunity to include a personal plaque, dedicated to your loved one.
Specially commissioned by the National Trust, our Dyffryn Bench is inspired by Thomas Mawson, the pioneering Edwardian landscape architect. In the early 20th century, Mawson was responsible for designing and constructing the Dyffryn Gardens in the Vale of Glamorgan. Our striking new bench now sits proudly in the grounds of these lovely restored gardens.
Alongside his award-winning work as a garden designer, Mawson established a successful plant nursery and outdoor furniture workshop. The products made by his joiners perfectly reflect Mawson’s passion for marrying architectural design with beautiful planting. More than one hundred years later, we are honoured to follow in his footsteps. In designing the Dyffryn for the National Trust, we drew our influences from an original 1904 Mawson product catalogue. The oversize arms and legs of this hand built bench will bring real character and presence to your outdoor space.
The Oxford is another example of our commitment to building the ideal solution for any outdoor space. Sitting proudly in the corner of a courtyard or walled garden, this is a bench that will be appreciated by family, friends and visitors for years to come. Drawing on all the traditional skills of our time-served joiners, the attractive lines of its gently sloping back create visual impact while complementing many different corner locations. To ensure a perfect fit, the Oxford is made to your individual specification in terms of size and finish, using FSC-accredited oak, iroko or Accoya.
