The flush-Joined Grid Pattern associated with Garden Bench #22 was borrowed from the Glasgow, Scotland-based architect / designer Charles Rennie MacIntosh, practicing around the turn of the last century in a style pre-dating Arts and Crafts and that later came to be known as Art Nouveau.

Charles administering a few touches before adding the defining backrest pattern for the GB22.

Although many of our homeowner's position their benches within the insulated foyer of their home, Prowell's Wood Exterior Garden Benches are developed primarily for the front porch, the patio, or even the full exposure of the open landscape. Whether you live in Duluth, MN or Charleston, SC. And yet, having said as much, a great many of you have found the entry foyer to be the ideal location.

wood benches for the arden

Late in the summer we would sit on the back porch of our sprawling old farmhouse, fanning ourselves, talking. From the barn a hundred yards off the pet Palomino we called simply Horse would make a noise, followed a moment later by an answer from our one milk cow we called simply Cow and that in turn followed the sounds of our two pet sows we called simply Pig #1 and Pig #2.

Countless evenings passed like this. Mother standing over a chair with bobby pins between her lips setting curlers in my oldest sister's hair and me on the far porch swing with Aunt Dee and my middle sister in the opposite swing with Aunt Bim and if it was Saturday night my great grandmother Ma would be inside at the television, smoking her pipe drawn from an old tin of pipes, yelling at the ref for missing an infraction, an illegal full nelson by a wrestler in a cowboy hat.

At the porch my father standing with his trousers hiked up over his boots, staring into the changing light as the sun dropped down behind Kickapoo Ridge a mile off and every so often flicking the screen to send a fat clinging June Bug somersaulting back toward the yard. Back where it belongs with the fireflies and mosquitoes and those black flies big enough to choke on.
