This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This theme has totally three parts:
1. Ruin building blocks, go-through-able (links )
2. Ruin invisible benches and chair, marked with ivy
3. Ruin Ivy decorations, go-through-able (links coming soon)

Here is the second part:
These are a outdoor bench (3 seaters), a outdoor loveseat and a outdoor chair
- The seats are invisible;
- The visible leaves on the seat surface are mark of the sit position and ivy before the seat is made for click to take the seat;
- They make the ruin building blocks sit-able, work also with other go-though objects;
- They have footprints of Maxis outdoor seats. (These are counterpart of the go-through-able ruin building blocks. With these items, you can define, which part of those blocks are not go-through-able.
- You need to install the "3 seats" ivy bench to let the "1 seat" and "2 seats" one work in game;
- Each has 10 colors;
- They have game matched style because my edit base on a Sims 4 debug item;
- Find under Buy mode / comfort / outdoor furniture
- base game compatible

You can place the invisible seats anywhere. Just, it's better that the mark of sit position is placed over something (must be go-through-able) looks like seat surface.
The big ivy behind the seats are 2x enlarged, so that you can see their shapes and effects of sun shadow better. I was so exited to get this point run! Of course, that was after several failed tries. The enlarged items lost the function as seats.

These are some different greens, some autumn colors, some saturated colors and one winter color.

There are lot of possibilities to combine these 3 seats with 8 of my ruin building blocks. You can also combine my Couch Together item with these.
I hope that you will have some smart idea to build with these items. Tag me (@artrui or #artrui), if you upload your screenshots with these, so that I will get know. I will be very glad to see that.
Have fun!

A tip:
It's possible to let Sims sit on the blocks placed on the edge of pool. Just place these ivy seats with MOO cheat there. All interactions on those seats do work. That's why a woman is napping there in the screenshot below:
