Product Reviews for Forest Garden Sleeper Bench 1.2m

Fabulous Little Bench

This rustic looking little bench arrived on time looking exactly how I imagined it would, it looks great at the bottom of our garden beneath the trees. Other people mention green on the bench which I find gives it a rustic look and soon washes off after a couple of rain showers so I didn't find this a problem.

Disappointing

Quality of timber is very low. Lots of green preservative in splodges all over it and some of the wood is split. The photo does not show the two wooden battens that have to be screwed to the base/legs to support them. I can see why they are necessary but they do spoil the look of the finished bench (which is probably why they aren't shown in the sales photo). Assembly requires a vert large hammer to fit the legs (not a problem for me but I/ suspect that some customers may not have the necessary tools to assemble this bench). Overall, a disappointment. PS I posted this review once but it was never 'approved' and placed on the site. Maybe this one will be (I will post it to Facebook as well just to be sure.)

Handsome addition to the garden

Good product if you don't like the look of municipal style benches in your garden. But note it comes from a separate supplier to other products. As we'd bought using Amazon pay, we had no information on why it didn't arrive with the rest of the consignment and it took several phone calls and quite a few days till it arrives. The product itself is perfect in its finish. Rustic by name, rustic by nature.
