Frequently Asked Questions

We have a huge variety of benches made from aluminium, powder coated steel and sustainably sourced timber. 
All our benches are very low maintenance, only the timber benches can be treated to prolong their life and retain their new colour every 2 - 3 years, but that is only at your discretion. If you choose not to treat the timber it will weather down to a soft grey patina. The metal benches only require a wash down in spring with a mild solution of warm water and washing-up liquid; if there are any scratches just cover them with a dab of nail varnish or car spray paint.
All the benches have at least 12 months warranty with many models having 3 years. The warranty covers any defective workmanship or materials which has arisen as a result of normal expected use. It does not cover any damage sustained as a result of the bench not being secured during adverse weather conditions. Our Customer Services team are on hand to sort out any problems you may encounter so you don't have to contact the supplier yourself. 
Unless it states on the particular product that it comes fully assembled the benches will need assembling. They come flat packed and are usually in 4 pieces: 1 x back, 1 x seat and 2 x arms and legs, everything you need will be in the package; screws, nuts, dowels, washers and an allan key. All the holes should be pre-drilled if they aren't please get in touch with our Customer Service team. Some designs may come in more than 4 pieces.

 Garden Bench Buying Guide

Hayes Garden World are one of north west England’s largest stockists of outdoor garden furniture, included are over 70 styles of garden bench, seating from 2 to 6 people and constructed from a variety of materials. Our outdoor furniture is sourced by our buyers Keith Laird and Ian Hodgett, who have over 50 years’ experience in the outdoor leisure sector, and travel extensively to source only the very best quality benches. The benches are sourced from the most respected suppliers both here in the UK and Europe such as Barlow Tyrie, Bramblecrest, Alexander Rose and 4Seasons Outdoor. Hayes have been trading over 200 years, all the while maintaining the very best standards in the industry, so you can be assured you can buy with complete confidence in the quality of the goods and receive a high professional standard of service. The range of benches are such that there is sure to be one to suit every taste, budget and situation.

There is a bench to suit most budgets from £129 for the basic to over £3,000 for a semi-circular bench to fit around a tree. All the benches have a guarantee varying from 12 months to 3 years so you can assured if you have a problem we can rectify it quite easily.

First thing to decide is where are you going to place the bench and how many people will be using it at any one time. We have benches to suit from 2 up to 6 people. Next you need to decide on a style; do you have a traditional garden where a Lutyen’s bench would look perfectly at home? Even if you have a contemporary outdoor entertaining area the painted minimalist benches would fit the bill. Space tight? We even have a bench which can fold and be stowed out of the way if you need the area for parties. If the bench cannot be permanently sited and may need to be moved why not go for one of the steel or aluminium mesh benches. Do you have a feature tree which gives gorgeous cool shade on a hot day? We have a semi-circular bench which is designed to go around the trunk.

The choice of garden bench material depends upon what look you are going for and how much maintenance you are prepared to carry out. Wooden benches can be left to weather down, which will lead to them becoming faded, or if treated regularly from new they will retain their new appearance. The rustic looking painted wooden benches are painted in a polyurethane based paint which should last at least 10 years before needing another coat. Metal benches are generally weather resistant, aluminium garden benches won’t rust but the coating may become scratched in which case a little touch up with a car body spray will rectify the problem. Steel benches have a powder coating which if it becomes chipped can be touched up with a little clear nail varnish. Metal benches usually are more complementary to a modern garden scheme whereas the wooden ones perfectly suit a more traditional setting. The chunky wooden furniture will also suit a contemporary urban setting.

All the benches have at least 12 months warranty with some designs having 3 years guarantee. The warranty covers defects in materials and construction sustained during normal use. It does not cover any damage sustained arising from the bench not being secured in adverse weather conditions. Our Customer Services team is on hand to sort out any problems you any encounter so you don't need to contact the manufacturer yourself.
