Sitting Spiritually are the only bespoke swing and bench makers licensed by the RHS and are regular exhibitors at RHS Chelsea Flower Show. They are most well known for their swing seats which can be seen in many notable gardens across the UK including all four RHS Gardens and some National Trust Properties.
Buying a garden swing seat or any kind of hand crafted garden furniture takes time and consideration. Choose your swing bench wisely – it will be made especially for you and is likely to be in your life for many years.
The shape is important. It must be classic, comfortable, beautiful and fit your garden.
You must be able to relax on your swing seat both sitting comfortably and using it like a hammock. Stretch out with a cushion and snooze dreamily in the dappled sunlight!
Make sure it’s long enough and wide enough for all the family.
Test the swing factor is it balanced? Does it have a soft smooth and gentle motion?
Choosing the right wood style and finish
Wonderful woods such as Oak and Western Red Cedar give longevity strength and fade over time to a majestic silvery grey.
