Target sells the Smith & Hawken Devon 5 foot Teak Bench for $649.00 plus $95 for shipping for a total cost of $744. I found the Amazon Teak 4 foot Patio Bench at Home Depot for only $179 with free shipping. Although, the Amazon Teak bench is 12 inches shorter, the 75 % savings makes up for it! Each bench is made from durable teak wood, which is naturally parasite and mold resistant.

If a backless garden bench fits your space better, this Casablanca 48 inch Backless Bench is available at Sears for $566.69. Overstock's Savannah 48 in Backless Bench is an almost identical match but costs only $239.99, a 60% savings.

Simple and classic, the Smith & Hawken Devon Armchair is available at Target for $399 each plus $95 shipping. Purchasing a pair of these armchairs comes to $893. Compare to the Amazon Teak Patio Chairs with similar design elements. Purchase them through Home Depot and the pair costs only $278 with free shipping. That is a substantial savings of almost 70%.
