Enjoy The Garden This Spring With The Keter Eden Outdoor Garden Bench

Regular readers of Vivre Le Rêve will remember that we’ve featured Keter several times over the years. We’re very excited to be featuring this very practical and useful bench once again. The bench is easy to assemble, and clean with no maintenance requirements. We’ve enjoyed testing it out and have found it to have a large storage capacity and a very comfortable seat to sit on. We can keep all of our picnic materials, small garden tools, garden toys, the bird food and even a garden tent in the bench and still have room left. It is very comfortable to sit on even without any cushion, and supportive. So provides a good resting seat. Two or three people can easily sit on the bench.

The bench has a lock, so that everything can be stored away safely. It is light weight, so you can change its position easily if you would like to. Above all it looks great next to our little cherry tree, and the colour blends well with the garden. We recommend this bench to everyone who has outdoor space and would like to have a comfortable, no maintenance bench as well as a storage area to keep their outdoor equipment neat and handy. The bench does need to be assembled but if you’re patient and read the instructions carefully, you’ll end up with a brilliant garden seat and storage box. The metal support bars (x3) add to the strength and sturdiness.

I’m fairly confident it will last a good while when I install it in its permanent place in the garden. You do have to be firm when assembling, making sure the plastic bits click together properly. The assembled external dimensions are: 140 x 60 x 84 cm (L x W x H). The internal dimensions are: 128 x 50 x 38 cm (L x W x H). 

It’s a little bigger than I thought, with exactly the same ‘seating’ width as my two seater couch. And it’s comfortable! It’s a pretty high seat, so it’s great for those who struggle to get out of their armchairs. Our dogs love it too – no gaps in the seat for little legs to get lost in and a perfect ‘jumpable’ height. Lots of storage for outdoor bits and bobs. We have several Keter items in our garden, including a shed and a few storage boxes of differing sizes. Although I love all the Keter products I already have I was still a little apprehensive as to how this could be suitable storage and and also offer comfortable outdoor seating. My fears were certainly unfounded. As a seat it is sturdy and really quite large comfortably holding three adults. It also looks really good in the garden.

You may be thinking, why plastic? Well, because we inherited some rotting wooden chairs with our garden and we wanted something that wouldn’t do that. The best thing about this design is that the bench is very easy for one person to put together by themselves. All the parts are numbered; the instructions are in pictures; they are big pieces and it probably took about ten minutes to get it put together. Ultimately, It’s solid and comfortable, and it doesn’t rot. Plus it won’t need repainting every year after being left out in the elements.

  1. Oh wow I need one of these, we have somehow ended up with three sheds in our garden but trying to dismantle one, just need to find somewhere to put all the stuff that’s in it!

  2. We have a big storage box with a lid for all garden tools and little bits and bobs.I like to keep hedges trimmed to make it look neat and tidy and wash down the patio every so often

  3. I would really love this to keep my gardening items and other bits. I can’t wait for summer to arrive so we can sit out in the garden on this lovely thing!

  4. I have two tiny sheds which have seen better days for storing tools and a virtually collapsed wooden storage bench for plant pots (half the seat has rotted away and what’s left of it is no longer attached to the base!). My patio pots are very tidy but as for the rest of the garden, I need to get out there and tidy it up.

  5. We’ve just moved to our new build home and it’s the very first time we have our own garden so have no experience whatsoever keeping it organised but this is a good start!! This would be a fab prize to win to keep lol things tidy!

  6. I have a shed and some space under the decking where I keep the childrens toys/scooters/bikes…..dog has probably buried bones under there as well lol

  7. I walk round at every opportunity to enjoy it and pick one area at a time to tidy. Sometimes it’s only 5 mins that I have to spare, but I still enjoy it and that’s the key I think : Enjoy the Garden

  8. Put aside two hours a week of time for garden jobs and just do one task for that time. I find I enjoy it once I start and end up getting loads done.

  9. A large wicker basket in the conservatory for a bucket full of hand tools, gardening gloves, kneeling stool, bird food etc and the taller tools have to stay outside just propped into a corner as there is no room for a shed!

  10. I keep a garden diary so that i know what plant is where and i like to get out and do some gardening every day to keep on top of the weeds.

  11. We are currently re-doing our whole garden. We are going to have a wildlife area for the wild hedgehogs and then have veg troughs, flowers etc which we will keep on top of – weeding etc.

  12. We keep our shed as tidy as possible with shelving and I keep on top of the weeds to keep the borders tidy. Am trying to plant more bee friendly plants at the moment.

  13. this is brilliant , at the moment i store all my tools in my husbands shed , but i have to move things of his first to get to my garden tools etc

  14. We have a lot of storage boxes, and a shed to store stuff. Then it’s just a matter of keeping the grass cut, and the whole garden will look clean and organised.

  15. I have great difficulty getting my garden organised whilst being assisted by two Labradors but try to do a little at a time.
