When it comes to creating inviting and functional outdoor spaces, the right choice of site furniture can make all the difference.

Whats New For 2023

January in our region of western Pennsylvania typically presents cold weather, cloudy skies and what seems like a constant mix of rain, sleet or snow. With such a dreary forecast, we are lucky to always have new things happening at the beginning of the year to keep our outlook bright.

What Are Site Furnishings?

When it comes to architecture, construction or landscape design projects, the term site furnishings has a very specific meaning and function. It often refers to an exact section of specification documents that defines the furnishings to be used on a given project. Based on the CSI MasterFormat® standard for organizing specifications, Division 12 is where most furnishings are listed.

Site furnishings specifically can be found under 12 93 00 with subdivisions for Bicycle Racks, Trash and Litter Receptors, Manufactured Planters, Site Seating, Benches and Tables, Drinking Fountains and Bollards...

When we talk about the applications of site furnishings, we typically refer to commercial settings and high-traffic public venues.

Public parks, open spaces and outdoor venues remain essential to our communities now and moving forward.

Public spaces are ever-changing and constantly evolving. In today’s fast-paced environment, you need to facilitate the mobile nature of how people live, work, gather and interact.

Durable Site Furniture - What Does That Mean?

We frequently use the terms durable and quality to describe our site furniture products. Quality can be a relative term, so what does it really mean when we say we offer quality, durable site furnishings? We can talk about the thickness of our powder coating or the full-weld seams that bind our product together or even simply the heavy weight of our products. What truly makes a quality story resonate though are case examples of installations that have lasted the test of time. Here are a few stories from our collection.

We continue to be an industry leader in site furniture customization, so in response to popular requests, our Customization 102 blog showcases more examples of made-to-order manufacturing creativity and educates on various ways that outdoor furnishings can be personalized.

New For 2019

The start of a new year brings about reflection, resolutions, new goals, and fresh starts. Advice from business author Tom Peters says to "Celebrate what you want to see more of." At Keystone Ridge Designs, we celebrate innovation, continuous improvement, and new opportunities to provide public spaces with creative site furniture solutions. With that in mind, we would like to share what is new with Keystone Ridge Designs in 2019 to keep your site furnishings knowledge up-to-date.

How It's Made

What is so cool about manufacturing? It's a question worth pondering. We recently had the opportunity to work with a group of talented students from Butler Intermediate High School and educate them on this very question. This is part of a statewide competition created by Manufacturers Resource Center in Allentown, PA called "What's So Cool About Manufacturing". For this program, students are partnered with a local manufacturer and are challenged to create a three-minute video to showcase the benefits of careers in manufacturing.

Seeing the interest and excitement of these bright young minds as they toured our plant has helped remind us that manufacturing is in fact really cool and we are proud to be a part of this important industry in America. From small processes that are just fun to watch...

Fall Photos and Furnishings

Located in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania, we at Keystone Ridge Designs get to experience a four season climate and all of the changes that come along with it. October is a wonderful time of year when the leaves start falling, the air becomes crisp and there is pumpkin-spiced everything in all of the stores. The autumn season offers great opportunities to appreciate the changing landscapes and the beautiful fall foliage. So while we cannot offer any pumpkin-flavored products, we thought we could at least offer a gallery of our favorite fall site furniture photos.

Site Furnishings for Senior Living

In the past we wrote about the different needs and considerations when planning public spaces for children. It brought to light that you cannot take a one-size-fits-all approach to landscape design and site furnishings. That brings us to the opposite side of the spectrum and how to plan for active older adults, senior citizens and long-term care residents. In today’s blog, we will consider the unique needs of this growing demographic.

Project Highlight - Echo Park Lake

What do Lotus flowers and Keystone Ridge Designs Schenley benches have in common? They both can be enjoyed throughout the summer at Echo Park Lake in Los Angeles, California. As one of the oldest and most beautiful parks in L.A., today's blog features this historic setting and our involvement in the major rehabilitation that has transformed the park.

Park Bench Workout

You do not need fancy, expensive, new machines to get in a fast workout. Actually, all you need is a durable bench. Park bench workouts are a great way to incorporate variety into your exercise routine, and Keystone Ridge Designs is here to help. Our benches can be found in parks, hiking trails, biking trails, and public areas nationwide. These park benches give you a place not only to relax, but to support your healthy, active lifestyle. Park bench workouts allow you to add strength training to your cardio workouts. So, next time you are on a walk in the park, look for a sturdy Keystone Ridge Designs bench on which to practice these exercises.

Site Furniture and Planning for Public Safety

It’s a nice thought to picture all of the installations of site furniture as picture-perfect utopian public spaces where the sun always shines, crime doesn’t exist and public safety is not a concern on anyone’s mind. Beautiful spaces do indeed exist all across the country, but public safety always needs to be a priority and site furniture can be used as a tool to help maintain the beauty and enhance the public’s sense of security.

Research has shown that "the proper design and effective use of the built environment can lead to a reduction in the fear and incidence of crime and an improvement in the quality of life." That’s the theory behind Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED), an urban planning practice that studies how the built environment impacts social behavior...

The Art of Bike Racks

When does a bike rack become more than just a place to park a bike? When it becomes a piece of art. Better yet, when it becomes a way to promote the arts. We’ve worked on projects across the country where unique customized bike racks were used to showcase a brand or represent familiar symbols. Downtown Bel Air, Maryland took this a step further by utilizing bike racks to visually represent the many facets of their Arts & Entertainment district.

Site Furniture Materials 101

If variety is the spice of life, then consider how alternative materials can spice up your site furnishings. While we always tout the many benefits of steel site furnishings, we also recognize the importance of different material options to achieve certain visual and functional requirements. What are the types of site furniture materials and special considerations for each? Today’s blog will break it down for you.

What's New?

What’s new? A simple question, a common icebreaker often exchanged between old friends. We actually hear it frequently from clients wanting to be informed of new concepts coming off the production line. We typically blog about industry news and educational content because we enjoy sharing our years of site furniture expertise with the general internet. Sometimes however, we just want to toot our own horn and share exciting news about what is happening right here at Keystone Ridge Designs. This blog is all about what’s new!

Project Highlight - Carson City Downtown Revitalization

"Historical Elegance." That was the term coined to describe the theme of the impressive revitalization project that Carson City, NV brought to fruition. It was no easy feat for the city to condense a five-lane traffic corridor into a three-lane pedestrian environment, but we were glad to be just a small part of the undertaking by providing site furnishings. In today's blog, we will highlight this project further, giving recognition to Carson City and their design partners for a great revitalization success story.

Reducing Waste - It Takes All Sorts

As a manufacturer of litter receptacles and recycling containers, it only makes sense for us to stay on top of waste disposal trends and growing environmental concerns associated with increasing population and trash. While the details of waste management can be quite complex, in today’s blog post we will touch on some of the basics of trash sorting and zero waste initiatives.

Putting the Fun in Furniture

Today's blog is just for fun because, well, that's what we like to do - have fun! We all have to work, so why not have fun while doing it! As if designing, manufacturing, and selling benches and trash cans is not fun enough, we add in extra elements of excitement to the site furniture world through company celebrations, social events, team-building experiences and general office shenanigans.


We like to celebrate everything whether it's a personal milestone or a company-wide success. From cupcakes or donuts on birthdays to showers for weddings and babies, we are on it. Sometimes it's just a lunch out to congratulate employees on goals achieved. A recent success took a group of employees to a local mixed-use development for dining and entertainment. As highlighted in our McCandless Crossing blog, we were partial to the benches and bike racks that were on site and were glad to be a patron of one of our clients' well-branded properties.

Site Furniture Placement Guidelines

When it comes to site furniture, product placement matters. We talk frequently about the design and aesthetics of our products, but it is also important to discuss installation and location. Today we offer some general guidelines to consider when determining where to install benches, litter receptacles and bike racks.

Project Highlight - City of Weston, FL

In the past, we showcased a custom two-color, Penn dual receptacle with a laser cut logo as one of our top 5 customizations.

Focus On Photography

We have a special passion for photography here at Keystone Ridge Designs. It is a key element to telling our story of quality and showcasing onsite installations of our products nationwide. We enjoy working closely with our professional photographers and have learned so much from them on how to set up a shot.

Thankful At Thanksgiving

At Keystone Ridge Designs, we have a lot to be thankful for this year. To celebrate, we want to call your attention to a few of the things (and people!) we are most thankful for in this special Thanksgiving-edition blog post.

Lamplighter Bench decorated for Thanksgiving

For starters, we are thankful for another successful year of sales and manufacturing. We appreciate the landscape architects who specify our products, the cities and towns that let us help revitalize their streetscapes, the shopping centers that trust us as a site furniture standard and everyone else who chooses us when needing to create a public space. We value these relationships and how they contribute to our continued growth...

How To Accessorize Your Landscape

We constantly find ourselves asking clients, “What style are you trying to achieve?” when helping them select a product series for their project. This is an important question, because, much like in the world of fashion, designing a public space requires careful attention to detail in order to create a cohesive finished product. Just as accessories add the finishing touch to an outfit, the right site furniture can reinforce your style and ensure consistency throughout your property, completing your look. This post is a guide to choosing site furniture according to four of the most common styles sought by our clients.

Site Furniture for Kids

With the school year coming to an end and children anxiously awaiting summers of parks, playgrounds and pools, we are turning our attention in this post towards the kids. When planning an outdoor space, it is important to consider your pint-sized patrons and how to best accommodate their site furniture needs and overall safety.

Project Highlight - McCandless Crossing

With a steady stream of our site furnishings being shipped across the country to various projects, sometimes it is nice to just take a moment and recognize an outstanding development where we got to be involved. Today, we highlight McCandless Crossing in the Town of McCandless, Pennsylvania.

Christmas with Keystone Ridge Designs

From the company Christmas party, to inter-office gift exchanges, to constant sharing of cookies, cakes and other holiday delights, Christmastime is always a joy around the office here at Keystone Ridge Designs.

Keystone Ridge Designs' Christmas Party

One may wonder how you too can share the joy of Keystone Ridge Designs amongst family and friends. Well, wonder no more. Here is our Keystone Ridge Designs Holiday Gift List!

Retail Branding

With the holidays quickly approaching, ‘Tis the season for retail! We work with our mall and retail clients throughout the year to make sure they have everything they need on site before the Christmas rush.

Let’s consider the function of site furnishings in a retail or shopping center environment:

  • Benches allow shoppers to spend more time on site by offering places to take a break, relax and wait for others before going back into the stores.
  • Trash cans encourage proper litter disposal for a cleaner shopping experience.
  • Bike racks offer a place for local bicyclists to park outside the stores while shopping.
  • Ash receptacles keep smoking away from store entrances and confined to designated areas.
  • Table sets accommodate food court seating and other quick-dining solutions.
  • Recycling containers support trash sorting initiatives.
  • Planters add ambiance and greenery both inside and out.

Make yourself a cardboard elevated lid hat (call for detailed instructions), hop into a trash can, wait for the right moment with an unknowing person passing by and then BOO! Trash can treachery!

The Benefits of Steel Site Furniture

Our manufacturing processes allow us the flexibility to customize and create products using all types of materials including steel, Ipe, aluminum, stainless steel and recycled plastic. We have followed design trends and perfected the process for all of these different materials, but we must admit that our true passion lies in steel.

Keystone Ridge Designs is located in a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA. Steel is a part of our region’s history and it is the roots of what has made our region so strong in manufacturing. Pittsburgh has long since surpassed its reputation as just a steel town, gaining nationwide recognition in robotics, technology, creative arts and countless other industries, but the ethics of hard work, quality, innovation and American manufacturing continue on. And steel remains a part of it.

A Campus Standard - Why It's Important

With back to school on the minds of parents, teachers and kids alike, we turn our thoughts towards our clients in the education industry. We often hear the term “campus standard” and no matter who your site furniture of choice is, determining a site furniture campus standard can go a long way to creating a cohesive campus plan.

The importance and usefulness of site furniture at a school is clear.

  • Litter receptacles keep trash in its place and help to maintain a clean campus.
  • Bike racks encourage alternative transportation and define bicycle parking areas.
  • Table sets and benches create public spaces for students to relax, meet and gather...

Guide to Plaques

We get a lot of questions about incorporating plaques into site furnishings. Whether you are looking to memorialize, pay tribute, offer donor recognition or provide wayfinding, here is our Guide to Plaques.

Pullman bench with plaque

Step 1: Consider the Product

Our most common plaque application is on a bench, but we also do customized plaques on many different products. The product that you pick will help to determine the best size for your plaque.

  • Bench – A standard bench plaque is 10”x5”. It’s installed in the center and inset into the back with a plaque tray. Custom larger sizes have included 10”x10”, 14”x8” and many more.
  • Litter Receptacle – Standard size is 7”x3”. A good option for a smaller message. Another idea is to curve a plaque in a band around the receptacle...

Four Trends in Site Furniture

Our sales team members are the eyes and ears of what is happening in the site furniture industry. It is within their day-to-day conversations that we learn about current projects, upcoming needs and design preferences. From timeless standards to new modern favorites, our inaugural blog post will cover what we see as a few current trends in site furniture selection today.

Timeless Classics

When it comes to our downtown and main street clients, we find that classic, timeless design is here to stay. Historic Victorian architecture remains present in many small town streets across the country. Many look to revitalize and restore their main street as a hub of activity. This influences the selection of street lamps, storefront design and ultimately the streetscape furnishings. The Keystone Ridge Designs Lamplighter and Reading benches are frequently purchased examples that offer both nostalgic design with timeless appeal.
