Garden seat buyers guide
A garden seat is the one essential piece of outdoor furniture, whether you only have a balcony or a huge expanse of beautifully tended garden we have the ideal garden seat. Pop a single cocoon in a secluded corner where you can escape to for a couple of hours, place a fold-up chair on your balcony and surround by aromatic herbs or go for a large dining or lounge set and you are set to entertain family and friends. Lightweight aluminium is ideal if you are moving it around constantly to follow the sun or perhaps just a small chair and table to spend time over breakfast and the morning paper. All the garden furniture sold by Hayes is the best quality at competitive prices, no we’re not the cheapest but our furniture will last considerably longer than that from the large DIY stores, it won’t rust, the colour from the weave won’t come off on your clothes and if you have a problem our Customer Service team are on hand to help resolve any issues.

We only source our furniture from the most respected manufacturers in the industry such as Barlow Tyrie, Alexander Rose and 4Seasons Outdoor. When choosing your seat you have to ask yourself first of all where do you wish to place the seat as you may be restricted by size? What will be the primary use of the seat, create a focal point in a corner of the garden, lounge on the patio or just somewhere to sit and enjoy your morning coffee? We have everything from 8 seater lounge sets to a single egg cocooon or a 4 seater bench. Finally consider the style of your garden, is it a traditional classic English garden or a more modern urban outdoor living space? If you cannot decide please just call our Customer Services team who will be happy to give you more information.
Our garden seats are made from a variety of materials to perfectly complement a classic English garden or a modern minimalist outdoor space. We have sustainably sourced timber, lightweight aluminium, brushed steel and resin weave.
Timber seats can be treated with a dedicated timber treatment if you want it to retain it’s new rich colour. They can also be left untreated and they will weather down to a soft natural patina. There are treatments to deter the growth of mould and algae which will extend the lifespan of the seat, however if they are placed in a sunny position this is not necessary as mould and algae tend to grow in damp shade.
The majority of our seats do come ready assembled however the timber seats do come as a flat pack, unless otherwise stated on the individual product page. Click here to read the blog and watch the video showing how easy it is to assemble one of our benches.
