The St James embodies the quintessential garden bench with its refined, upright appearance and familiar slatted backrest. Whether you plan to nestle the St James in the arbour of a wilderness garden or have it sat proudly on your patio, you can be sure it will provide a comfortable garden seat the year round.
The St James is crafted from grade A teak, which is SVLK certified and sustainably sourced. Teak is a timber that requires little to no maintenance and is exceptionally resistant to the elements due to its naturally high oil content. The St James will provide you with many years of enjoyment, and with basic care, it can even last a lifetime. This model has a 1.5m width and will make a wonderfully versatile addition to any home garden. Slender, strong and reliable, its simple appearance will bring gardens of all styles to life.
The St James is available in three sizes and can be purchased with a range of accessories. For increased comfort outside, purchase the 3-seater St James with one of our luxuriant bench cushions, or if you require extra security, browse our selection of ground anchor kits.
The Hoggman St James was photographed on location at East Riddlesden Hall, a beautiful 17th century manor that overlooks the River Aire in West Yorkshire. The St James photographed is our 4-seater 1.8m version – please note that the 1.5m model is smaller than the bench pictured and does not feature a centre support.

Our garden benches are crafted using a combination of modern and traditional woodworking methods. Mortise and tenon joints are used to hold the larger pieces of timber together, while the bolts ensure your bench can be assembled and disassembled with ease. Mortise and tenon joints have been used in woodworking for thousands of years. A simple and traditional way to connect two pieces of wood, these joints are something of a staple for furniture making and contribute to the robust construction of our garden benches.
The St James requires very little maintenance due to its naturally high oil content and will weather to a silvery-grey patina if left untreated. To retain the natural warm colouration of teak timber, we recommend an annual coating with our premium teak oil. This helps prevent the natural oils from evaporating, revitalises the timber, and ensures your bench is protected from splitting and warping. To ensure your garden bench lasts a lifetime, take a look at our care guide which contains some handy tips for maintaining teak.
All of our Hoggman premium teak benches are covered by the Garden Benches Direct 3 Year Guarantee. This guarantee protects your garden bench against structural defects and rotting, providing assurance that your bench will last for years to come. Misuse of your bench, accidental damage, and vandalism is not covered by the guarantee. For protection against vandals, we sell a range of ground anchor kits with tamper-proof fixings. Regardless of the 3 Year Guarantee, all teak furniture can be expected to last a lifetime if it is cared for correctly.
