Looking for some new garden seating? We've found some great garden bench deals in the Wayfair end-of-summer sale that will give your outdoor space an instant purse-friendly update. After all, you can't go wrong with a classic garden bench. It's a timeless choice that works well on a patio when teamed with other seating to create a versatile entertaining space, but it's also a great option for a more secluded spot elsewhere in the garden, giving you somewhere peaceful to simply sit back and enjoy being surrounded by plants and trees.
We've rounded up our favourite looks to suit gardens big and small, so keep scrolling to find the best one for your space. Looking for outdoor sofas or dining sets too? You'll find more great buys in our best garden furniture guide.
1. The bargain buy for under £50
Vanmeter Wooden Bench | Was £59.99, now £48.99 at Wayfair
Update your garden without splashing the cash thanks to this great-value buy. It's perfect for extra seating around an outdoor dining table, or why not use it to create a cosy seating area next to a fire pit for autumn evenings alfresco? You could also give it a more unique look to suit your space by painting it with exterior wood paint in your colour of choice.
2. The space-saving choice
Fairlight Wooden Bench | Was £191.99, now £147.99 at Wayfair
Like the idea of having a garden bench but want something more contemporary to suit a modern outdoor space? This Fairlight design is just the ticket thanks to its Ash Grey finish. Made from solid acacia wood and galvanized steel, it can also be folded away for easy storage so is a great option for smaller gardens. Self assembly is required.
3. The cosy bench for two
Petronia Wooden Love Seat | On sale for 179.99 at Wayfair
We love this garden bench with a difference. Featuring two Adirondack-style chairs joined together with a handy table in the middle, it would make a comfy addition to any space. The low, slanted seats and high backs are designed for maximum comfort, while the central table means your hot cup of coffee (or glass of wine) will always be close at hand. Perfect.
4. The two-in-one option
Stathelle Wooden Bench | Was £205.99, now £151.99 at Wayfair
If you're looking for ways to maximise space in your garden, this option combines seating and storage in one space-saving design. Add some cushions to the top for a practical bench seating area, then simply slide some stylish storage boxes underneath to keep garden essentials neat and tidy. Like the overall style but not overly keen on the natural wood finish? It's also available in a white/grey combination.
5. The classic buy
Teak Bench by Bel Etage | Was £669.99, now £569.99 at Wayfair
Although pricier than our other options, there's still great savings to be made on this bench and we think it's a stylish investment buy. Made from solid teak for a beautiful wood finish, the curved back and seat create a comfortable seating position and an elegant overall look, meaning this bench would look right at home nestled in a quiet corner of your garden.
