In the furniture world, that would be a soft close hinge. Used for toy boxes and such, it helps prevent the lid slamming on fingers. It would be cheaper to make a lighter door. These soft close hinges are for interior use and may not last outdoors. http://www.leevalley.com/en/hardware/page.aspx?c=&p=40648&cat=3,41427

As an alternative, you could take a hinge with spring such as is used to close screen door and install it backwards so that the door had to be forcefully closed to latch. That might be a better solution. http://www.truevalue.com/product/2-Pack-2-34-Inch-Self-Closing-Hinge/26087.uts
