Looking to buy Picnic Benches?

Ready to revamp your garden ready for eating outdoors on those sunny, summer days? You're in the right place! Our considerable online selection of picnic benches is bursting with enough variety to suit practically any outdoor area. From rustic wooden creations from vidaXL that the whole family can gather around to lightweight and portable Outsunny plastic benches that are ideal for camping trips, you won't be short on practical or attractive options at OnBuy.

Why choose a picnic bench for your outdoor space?

Picnic benches have a range of benefits that you can use to your advantage. From providing your whole family with a place to relax and eat together outdoors thanks to their typically generous size to withstanding all kinds of weather, they're a fantastic choice. Indeed, the bench style means you can fit more people next to one another which is especially useful if you have a large family with lots of little ones. Not to mention, benches are also a lot easier for children to climb onto and seat themselves as the seat is typically lower than other garden and patio furniture. Alternatively, there's also plenty of low seating options in our online collection of rattan garden furniture if you prefer smooth and low-maintenance rattan over wooden or plastic picnic benches.

Alongside the traditional wooden picnic bench design that comes with a table and connected benches, you can also expect to find more contemporary creations in our online range. These more modern models generally have a sleeker design involving a combination of metal and wood for an on-trend industrial edge. Plus, the benches are often separate to the table, giving you more freedom when it comes to deciding where you want to use these items of handy outdoor furniture. Thanks to these more contemporary picnic benches, they can even fit into smaller outdoor spaces. However, if your heart is set on one of the traditional bulky or rustic models, then you may require a generous area of lawn to place your new item of garden furniture.

What are picnic benches made from?

Picnic benches can be snapped up in a wide variety of materials including wood, metal, and heavy duty plastic to suit both your personal tastes and the purpose of the table. While wood is a popular choice thanks to its durability and rustic appeal, they're best kept in one place in your backyard where they'll get the most usage. This is because they're typically very heavy and don't make practical seating areas for taking with you to events like camping trips, festivals, and beach days

Not to mention, while wooden picnic benches are pressure treated for resistance against UV damage and wood rot allowing them to last for years (or even decades in some cases!), other models do require regular treatment and maintenance to prevent rot and mould from affecting the wooden structure. Plastic picnic benches, on the other hand, are much more affordable, low-maintenance and portable, so you can take them on your travels with ease. While they may not be as long-lasting as wooden or even the robust metal alternatives, they certainly deliver on convenience if this is an important feature for you and your family. Match them with a picnic basket, a set of outdoor tablewear and a parasol for an incredible al fresco dining experience.

Frequently asked questions about picnic benches

I want to buy a garden picnic bench made from pine wood. How long does this material last for?

It depends on if the pine wood is treated or not. Picnic benches made from untreated wood can last for several years outside, but you’ll need to take some protective measures like coating it with an outdoor wood sealer. Painting your garden picnic bench can provide additional protection on top of the sealant. Treated pine wood will last for much longer. Tanalised pine can last for up to 30 years without any extra effort on your part, and even more with further treatment like painting.

Will metal picnic benches rust?

The types of metal used in picnic benches is prone to rusting. However, there are steps you can take to reduce rust forming on your furniture. When it’s not in use, keeping your bench covered with a waterproof garden furniture cover is a fantastic idea. There are also rust protection products like paste wax which, when properly applied, will protect your bench from rust.

Is Polywood suitable for picnic benches?

Polywood is a form of plastic lumber alternative made from high density polyurethane plastics. That makes it well suited to a life outdoors as part of picnic benches and other garden furniture. It doesn’t require treating, unlike real wood, and will last for many years outside.

Are all picnic benches heavy?

Most garden benches are designed to be a permanent fixture in your garden. They’re large and sturdy and heavy. However, if you want a garden bench that you can relocate easily, it’s possible to find picnic benches made from plastic and other lightweight materials in this category.

How tall should picnic benches be?

As picnic benches are made to be sat on, the best height for them is around 45 centimetres off the ground, as this provides a comfortable sitting height for most people.
