Why are the best garden swing seats made of wood?

At the end of the day, you can’t get more natural than wooden garden swing seats. Wood offers many benefits that other materials simply don’t, such as:

Wood gets better with age. If they are well taken care of, wooden seats simply improve over time. They change colour over the years, mellowing to a lovely pewter grey and won’t deteriorate as they age. They will keep your family comfortable for years on end if you take good care of them.

Wood is kind to the environment. Unlike other materials that some swing seats are made of, such as plastic or metal, wood is a renewable resource.

Wood is tough and durable. Beautiful, rustic wooden garden swing seats are designed to handle the elements. Their durability comes from the timber they are crafted from, offering weather resistance, as well as being waterproof.

Much like the trees they are made from, our garden swing seats are made to be able to resist the elements and weather any storm that is thrown at them, providing a cosy place to sit and enjoy the garden for many years to come. All of this makes for strong garden swing seats that can handle any weather and be enjoyed year round.

Wood takes you back to the core of nature, blending in effortlessly with the setting around it. It is timeless, beautiful and elegant, allowing some garden benches to be a masterclass of design, and sporting some truly beautiful finishes.

Several different types of wood go into the making of our garden seats, including Oak, Western Red Cedar and Pine. They are resistant to rot provided they are cared for properly, along with being durable and tough.

Wooden garden benches and swings look beautiful either painted or unpainted. Many gardeners prefer a natural finish to blend seamlessly with the garden, but a painted swing or bench can sometimes highlight the colour scheme of the garden to better effect.

All of this adds up to help folks have the best garden swing seats UK selection at their fingertips. No matter what style is chosen, you can count on receiving quality, handcrafted garden swing seats from Sitting Spiritually to liven up the garden or patio.
