Outdoor Backless Benches


If you are looking for extra seating for dining or just relaxing by the pool, look at one of these Outdoor Backless Benches for a solution.  You can pull it up to a dining table to seat your guest or move to any area in your outdoor space that needs seating.  They all have different qualities, some will have storage, different color styles or just the style of the seating area.

Each style will fit a certain decor style, you will have to look at each style and see what works best for your patio seating needs.

Now let us look at the two major wood types of outdoor backless benches in this article.

Acacia Wood

Acacia wood is found in Australia and most of Asia, it is a very plentiful wood supply.  It will last very well in most outdoor weather conditions and will withstand mold, mildew, fungi, termites, and will be rot, and decay-resistant.  Once a year treatment with tongue oil will keep your finish looking like new.

Eucalyptus Wood

Eucalyptus wood is mainly grown in Australia.  It is grown on plantations for its wood value.  The Koala uses this tree for its main diet, it is a very hardy tree in Australia, it is only grown on farms in other countries.

As with Acacia wood, it will tolerate extreme outdoor weather conditions very well.  Bugs and other vermin do not like to chew on it either, so it will only need to be refreshed once a year with a recommended good oil.


Now let us look at the nine designs of benches for your outdoor needs.  If you want to look at other outdoor garden benches that are available, look at my post with this link.
