turfed seat


Explanation:
"Turfed seats were a major feature of 'gardens of pleasure'. [...] The turfed seats were generally built along the lines of raised beds, edged either with bricks or with wattles. [...] Often the turfed seats were arranged around the inner borders of an enclosed 'herber', providing seats as well as anchorage for the trellised plants."

agree  Russell Gillis: I think you got it exactly. The references I looked at talk about the same use (being used as a seat).
