    Maybe rocks

  • Yes I second that... move the bench, add a thick layer of stones for drainage and then put the bench back in place.

    Hi Shirley: If your bench (is that a picture of your bench?) sits in the yard, and you don't want to use rocks, which get really hard to remove when they sink into the ground, you can try mulch or patio blocks to set it on, or a combination of both. If it's on the patio, like mine is (I have iron legs on my bench) I put patio blocks under the legs to keep it from sitting in the water and rusting. Good luck.

      I did not explain my wooden bench's situation fully.......It sits under a breezeway and when we have these monsoons in TX.....the water gets about 3-4 inches up the wooden legs...also it sits on concrete with pavers...I know I've seen somewhere you can set the legs in a container...rubber? whatever but I don't want my bench to ruin because of high water...and I'd like something nice because it is near my front door entrance.....

      Thank You for helping me with this problem....

    Hi Shirley: I think you're thinking about the bed raisers. They should work for you. Check this Target web site and see if it's what you're looking for. Thanks for clearing this up for me:)

    Hi Shirley: I don't know if my other answer went through or not, but I sent you a site with bed risers, which I think you are thinking about. Here it is again: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-Bed-Riser-Black-4pc/17128618 Target sells them too.
