One of the best parts of a front porch is having a front porch swing. However, most modern homes do not have a front porch or they don’t have one big enough to support a porch swing. Fortunately, garden swing seats provide the same relaxing motion as a front porch swing and usually with a better view.
One of the biggest advantages to a garden swing seat is that they can be easily placed anywhere you want. It can also be set up on a deck or patio. If you want a change of scenery during the year, you can relatively easily move it around. For example, you may want to move your garden swing seat to take full advantage of the rising or setting sun as it migrates through the sky during different seasons. You may also want to turn your garden swing seat to get a better view of your blooming flowers in the spring and the fall foliage during autumn.
If you get a garden swing seat, you don’t need to deal with hanging them as you would with a front porch swing. This is a huge advantage because hanging front porch swings can be challenging to do in a safe way. However, with a garden swing seat, you can just set them up as a free standing unit and be completely confident they are safe for you, your loved ones, and your guests.
There is a lot of versatility in the design of garden swing seats so it is easy to cater to your personal style and taste. If you get one with a wood frame, you can leave the wood natural and just treat it to withstand the weather elements. You can also paint it to match the other decor in your garden. You can dress up your garden swing seat with cushions of various designs. Some people also like to have a retractable canopy so they can block the direct sunlight when it is particularly harsh or move it aside so they can capture vitamin D from the sun.
Garden swing seats come in a variety of shapes and sizes too. You can get one-seaters, two-seaters, three-seaters, and four-seaters. You can also get a seat of various depths and the curvature of the back and the sides can be tailor made to suit your personal comfort needs. Some families carve their initials into the wood or place family crests or other personal decorations on their swing seats.
