Granite is the ideal material for crafting outdoor benches and seats for a number of reasons. The natural colour and texture of the stone is aesthetically appealing and brings a timeless elegance to the look of a garden design. Its hues coordinate perfectly with any exterior facade, and when polished to perfection, granite has a lustrous natural shine that catches the eye.

In terms of durability, few varieties of stone can match the strength of granite. The stone resists scratching and chipping and is resistant to damage due to fluctuations in temperature. Even in areas where sunlight is direct and intense, the stone will retain its lovely colour year after year, and granite requires very little ongoing maintenance to keep looking like new.
