Concrete Memorial Benches

Updated

A memorial bench is a poignant emblem of your love and memory of a friend or relative. These benches may be placed in the public domain, such as a cemetery or park, or within your garden. Whilst many opt for wooden benches, concrete is robust and non-corrosive, offering a more substantial option. They can be a lovely totem for a strong, and permanent reminder for your loved one.

Designer Advice:

Due to the use of LED lights, it’s important to keep this in the sunlight as frequently as possible to charge the lights. As it is smaller, it is not a strong durable bench to sit on, but a lovely emblem for a loved one. You should wash with warm water or hose down to keep the bench free from grime and dirt every month.

Beautiful Concrete Garden Bench

Beautiful Concrete Garden Bench

At 29'' wide, this cast stone concrete bench is inscribed with words of love and is UV resistant. It is small and light grey, so it works well in most outdoor spaces. It has a rugged unfinished look, with two stone legs for support.

Designer Advice:

As this bench is a very light grey, it is more susceptible to wear and tear. For this, we recommend cleaning monthly with a hose or mild soapy water. This will retain the inscription. Also, it will sit only one person, so it’s ideal for a smaller garden or even for a small patio.

Buying Guide

The weight of concrete memorial benches tells you that they have been created with a form of stone or concrete. Seamless and ornate, each letter of the loving phrases has been machine stamped for perfect distribution. A great way to honor the memory of a relative, friend or pet.

  • Cast Stone - Used to resemble natural rock, cast stone is made from concrete. Plasticizers and special mixers are blended with aggregates until a smooth and durable integrity are formed. The end result is a weather resistant and smooth exterior.
  • Precast Concrete - Concrete has a drab and porous appearance. However, memorials benches often have color enhancers added and the surface is handcrafted for an aesthetic appeal in the surrounding landscape. They are often secured with steel that adds reinforcement to the structure after being cast in a mold.
  • Resin Stone - A resin/stone mix uses molten plastic resin and a base material. Fillers, such as stone, are added and make it possible to create fine details. Not as sturdy as stone or concrete, it can become brittle with outdoor use.
  • Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete - Commonly known as GFRC, this mixture of Portland cement and glass fibers was perfected in the 1970s for use in ornamental concrete products. It offers a smooth and detailed look without the need for reinforcement. It is 75% lighter than traditional concrete.

Concrete memorial benches are typically straight or slightly curved and set on plain or ornate legs. Designed to be placed among natural elements of the outdoors, limited materials and decoration are used. Scrolls or leaf designs often leave a well-balanced appearance when used on legs, or a slight trim that outlines the poetic message. Colors can be ordered that are natural, such as beige, brown or gray. An array of peaceful messages cover the seat for remembrance.

Sizes can vary according to your need. For gardens, a 29" long bench that stands 14" tall is lovely. When used beside of a gravestone, use proportion to the head stone for proper balance and appearance. For example, the bench should not be more than half the height of the corresponding stone. If the head stone is lower to the ground you may want to consider a flat stone instead of a bench. Or place a beautiful concrete memorial bench under a favorite tree in your yard where it can be seen every day.

Cast stone will naturally grow lighter or darker in color over the years. This is completely natural and provides a natural glow to your bench. GFRC will need special care to protect from the ground's elements. Always wrap the feet of GFRC monument benches with burlap and cover with plastic material to prevent damage from water and soil.
