Comments about Product: We were looking for a comfortable coffee table/foot stool combination and came across this one in the catalog. It is perfect for our needs at the lake cottage! We can store things in it, we can use the sliding table to set things on and can take the sliding table off to use as a tray, and we can prop our feet up and enjoy the view of the lake! Our guests ask all the time where we got such a universal item!
Comments about Product: Ordering online was great, delivery came ahead of time and looks very nice. The one problem is a scuff on the front base of the bench. Too heavy to return so I guess we have to live with it.
Comments about Product: It would have been super easy to assemble if one of the eight bolts for the four legs hadn't been a smidge off-kilter. I really had to muscle the last one in and it took a lot longer than the the others.

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!
