Concrete garden bench

On which you can put a pot with a flower or just sit down yourself. This design is more durable compared to wooden benches, requires almost no maintenance or maintenance, is not afraid of high humidity and water.

In order for the shop to be resistant to temperature changes and not cracked, it must be reinforced. To do this, in the middle of the construction you need to brick up a piece of reinforcement. In our case, it will be a piece of metal mesh from the fence. Preparing the mesh for the reinforcement of the structure.

The chipboard itself is water resistant due to the coating in the center, but on the sides, in the joints, when water gets in, it starts to swell. To avoid this, we will seal the joints with seals. I made the border with masking tape and then applied and smeared the sealant.

Cooking and pouring concrete. It's not so simple. First, the base of the bench is poured, carefully compacted so that there are no air bubbles.
