There are many benefits that Winawood has over a hardwood set.
Hardwood requires 2+ hours a year sanding down and oiling it, with £50 for a cover and teak oil. Plus you have to carry it inside during the winter.
Whereas Winawood can be left outside all year, with no cover, no oil, no need to store and £0 maintenance costs.
Plus Winawood comes with a 2 year guarantee against weather damage as standard.

"I love my new duck egg bench so much I am thinking of getting a second one. My only regret is that I got a two seater and not a three. Lovely colour and well made. Thank you."

We stock the sandwick (slatted) range of Winawood™ garden furniture, with a range of composite benches, love seats, dining sets and coffee sets, in teak, brown, duck egg green and white. They could be considered wood effect, resin, or synthetic wood, and are very sturdy, solid, strong and heavy duty. They are also waterproof / weather resistant benches, that you can use in all weather. They are available for UK home delivery, for sale online via our website, or by phoning our sales hotline 01455 274748. You can have the option for an assembled bench on request (surcharges may apply).
These benches are delivered flat packed in a box, with plenty of padding to protect them on their journey. They are really easy to assemble, with roughly half the amount of assembly required compared to a wooden bench (full instructions and a fixing kit is provided). If you require a bench to be fully built, please contact us for a quote.
Not in the conventional sense. Winawood™ is a composite of a few materials that are created and compacted during the formation of polystyrene, creating a hard solid structure that is much heavier and durable than hardwood, and certainly contains none of the traits you would associate with a plastic bench. If you are unsure about the material please contact us and we will be happy to send you a sample of the material.
No, these benches are completely weatherproof, and will not warp or become damaged by the weather in any way. They will look brand new for years to come, and that's why they come with a 3 year guarantee!
The main benefit of a weather-resistant garden bench, is that you don't need to oil, cover, or store it, like you would with a traditional hardwood or teak bench.
This can be done when you checkout, by adding a different "delivery address" to your "billing address". You should also mention in your order comments that it is a gift, so that we don't send the lucky recipient your order invoice.
Yes, all of the Winawood™ bench range for sale is stocked in teak, brown, and duck egg green. These benches are available to buy online throughout the year. However stocks are limited, and we have sold out many times, so to ensure you get your favourite colour, we advise you to pre-order your benches to make sure. (Here are some more garden bench faq's or our best value garden benches). If you are unsure about the colour please contact us and we will be happy to send you a sample.
Yes, Winawood™ weatherproof garden furniture can be screwed into without damaging the material. It is very simple to add a plaque to this bench, and we have many customers who have used this as a memorial bench, sports club bench, or a bench for local parks and council buildings.
Yes definitely, this is one of the best characteristics of the Winawood™ range. They are twice as heavy as the average keruing wooden bench, and double the thickness, giving them a solid sturdy feel, that will last as long as the bench does. This makes them a perfect garden furniture option for care homes, or for anyone who needs to put their full weight onto the arms when sitting and getting up from the seat.
Currently the selection we have are all on our website. However, there are some new styles of bench that we are looking into, such as a larger 6ft bench, a straight companion seat (love seat), a done for you memorial bench service, bench inscriptions and fixings service. If you have any other suggestions for new Winawood™ products, please contact us with your suggestions at: 01455 274748, or email email@example.com.
Approximate Winawood™ dimensions are 2 Seater bench = 1.2m or 4 ft, 3 seater bench = 1.4m or 5ft.
It simply gives you the best of both! You get to enjoy a piece of garden furniture that look exactly like wood, but it requires none of the maintenance alongisde it. Therefore wood-effect can be considered the best compromise between natural classic, and up to date man made.
