available, our bench stands up to the changing weather conditions and requires virtually no maintenance. Strength, and durability are the best reasons to use charcoal granite for garden benches as these qualities produce a bench that remains beautiful for generations.
About The Materials
Granite is an igneous rock formed when volcanic lava cools beneath the earth’s surface. The internal cooling creates a course or medium-grained texture rich in quartz and feldspar. Granite is extremely resilient and requires no maintenance making it the ideal material for garden and park benches.
About The Design
Our Solid Charcoal Granite Metro Bench has a 56” seat that allows room for three adults to sit comfortably. All surfaces of the bench are polished with the lighter shade areas of the leg pieces undergoing a brush-hammered finishing process. This special process gives the leg pieces contrasting color and texture and sets our Solid Charcoal Granite Metro Bench apart from many other stone benches.
About The Finish
The Polished Finish process includes 7 steps of polishing the stone with progressively finer grit polishing pads after the stone is worked with saws, chisels and grinders. The end result is a finish that is as smooth as glass and beautifully reflective.
The Bush-Hammer finish is applied using a stone-working hammer with a head that resembles a meat tenderizing hammer. The pointed ends of the bush-hammer cause the smooth surface of the stone to have small indentations. As the head of the bush-hammer is usually only 1-2” square, this finish takes a long time to apply to a large surface area.
