Due to the great interest in our labyrinth project, I'm thinking that I
need to install a full-size park bench next to the labyrinth instead of the
small stone bench we had originally considered.
So, if you're going to install a park bench at your community garden (and I
know a lot of you have done this already), what type of park bench would
you buy? Are the ones on "end of year clearance sale" at Sears Hardware
sufficient, or since this poor bench is going to be banged on by little
kids besides being used by labyrinth walkers to collect their thoughts, do
I need a more "heavy duty" bench. And just where does one purchase "heavy
duty" park benches?
Also, once one gets the park bench, how does one secure it so that it
doesn't wander off (let alone being tipped over by aforementioned small
children)? We'll be purchasing a small curved stone bench for the center
of the labyrinth -- any advice on how to secure it, also?
Thanks so much for your help!
