What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Coastal Garden Style
A bench set in the middle of a sea of shrubs and grasses is the perfect getaway for relaxing. Again, the weathered gray look blends in with the soft colors around it.
Where natural vistas take the starring role, the landscape needs to complement and frame the view. Try to mimic nature's planting approach, creating harmonious colonies of the same plant to avoid competing with the view.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Gardening for Happy Kids
4. Have a place to sit. The best place to sit is among grasses and flowers, or in the dirt, but the next best place is one snuggled into the landscape. Put benches in areas of seclusion or overlooking an expanse. Create a good place in which to reflect, write in a journal and slow down by paying attention to the now.
