the-garden-magazine.pngAn American Country Classic - The Porch Swing

Well, May is here again and folks are venturing out of their homes to spend time in the fresh outdoors - many make their first stop on their beloved porch swing. It is, truly, an American past time. While many folks have porch swings, not many realize to what extent the porch swing has become a part of Americana and good-old fashioned country living culture. This excerpt from a 1922 print of The Garden Magazine reads as follows:

"When May sunshine and warmth coax all humanity to revel in the return of fairer season, then the problem of outdoor comfort comes to the fore and we are ready to help you solve it!"

Well, that's as true of May 2013 as it was May 1922. And All Garden Benches certainly wants to help you solve your outdoor comfort needs.

We carry a line of the best available porch swings on the market today. Whether your old squeaky or rotting swing needs replaced, or whether you'd like to adorn your porch with a classic swing - we have what you need. And don't forget - even if your lovely little home does not have a porch, we sell swing frames as well - that makes any garden or outdoor area your own personal "front porch".Polywood Vineyard Porch Swing

An absolute classic, this swing is made from recycled plastic and its gorgeous, smooth, clean exterior will never rot. It is built to last. It's certainly the 2013 version of the American Classic!

Cedar Porch SwingOf course, if you'd prefer a wood swing - we can make those last too. The Cedar Porch Swing from All Things Cedar is designed specifically for lasting many years. Cedar wood provides this possibility naturally, but the rust-resistant zinc plated hardware, the clear-grade Western Red Cedar wood, and the hand crafted snug joinery all make this one last. So not only will you be enjoying your Spring in 2013, but your progeny many years later will look back at this article while sitting in the same gorgeous porch swing that you purchase today.

And of course, as we mentioned, for those of you suffering from porch-envy, we have the solution.
