Comments about Product: I haven't had a chance to really try out the benches, I purchased 2 of them. One went together fairly easily. The other the hole was drilled incorrectly to line up properly. I was happy that Plow and Hearth are able to send me a new leg and that I do not have to ship the entire bench back to them. They look very attractive and I am looking forward to using them soon!
Comments about Product: This was extremely easy to put the legs on with the drilled holes and quality hardware. I love the look of the leather seat and the wood is just beautiful and matches some of my other furniture with the same kind of barley twist legs. Gorgeous!
Comments about Product: I wish that the catalog copy was correct and had said it was leatherette -- might be an issue if you wanted to use it in front of the fireplace. It's a great bench, but I was disappointed by the copy not being truthful.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
