Taking Care of your Garden Bench

With a little effort, your garden bench can be kept looking fresh for years.  Just as you reap what you sow in your garden, - so you shall with your garden bench.

Keep your garden bench clean by hosing off grass clippings, bird droppings and other regular dirt and debris.  If your garden bench is made from POLYWOOD®, that’s about all you will ever have to do!

If your garden bench is unfinished wood, we recommend applying a spray-on or brush-on water seal as needed.  To retard the graying effect of oxidation on your garden bench, use a sealer with a UV inhibitor.  Shop for this at your local Ace or True Value hardware store – they stock products that are correct for your local area.

On a garden bench made from teak or shorea - teak oil and teak cleaners work well.  If your red cedar garden bench came treated with Duckback, this product is sold commercially as Olympic Semi-Transparent Oil Stain.  Again, the products you need to clean and maintain your garden bench are best found at your local hardware store.
