The Palisade bench brings a warm, angular look to exterior projects. Kalamazoo, Mich.-based Landscape Forms crafts the bench from blocks of solid jarrah or redwood fastened with internal steel rods. The product is then sanded and left unfinished to weather to a pewter gray color. At 19 inches deep and 16 inches high, Palisade can be specified in 72-inch or 96-inch lengths.
