A bench is a must for any outdoor space: it’s a durable and comfortable seat that can be used for a variety of purposes. We’ve already shared some outdoor storage bench tutorials, and today I’d like to share some more ideas, but this time these are planting benches.
A planting bench is a two-in-one bench. It makes it possible to liven up the room a little and to feel more outside because of the greenery and flowers that grow here. It saves space and even if you don’t have other pots and planters, it’s fine.
This beautiful outdoor cedar bench is an amazing idea to realize, the boxes are attached to the sides of the bench so you can sit comfortably. These aren’t planters, but boxes that pots can be placed in, and the boxes are quite large, but you can measure your pots and make them accordingly.
Cinder blocks are a very cool material, they are durable and easy to use. This cinder block bench won’t take you much time or effort. Just place the blocks however you want and place blocks for potting greens and flowers wherever you want.
This bench is made from a large wooden beam, it has only been cut out at one end and then stained. The writers set the reels and ten planted some green in the pot cutout. This is a great idea for small and tight spaces.
This is another wooden bench, but here the boxes are thicker and have no cutouts so you can plant directly into them.
The cedar wood for this plant bench costs far less than built teak furniture, but is just as weatherproof. A sturdy construction is to prevent the walls of the planter from bending against the pressure of the roots if you decide to plant trees.
This large wooden bench with planters looks very stable and you can plant directly in these boxes without separate pots.
To make building this 10 foot long bench easier, we designed a tabletop that rests on a pair of oversized ceramic pots. Add plants or trees to enrich the look.
This planter bench offers you additional comfort due to the pillows on it. Simply adjust the spacing between each slat to adjust the depth of the bench yourself. An additional slat can be added or removed if the space becomes too big or too small.
For this garden bench, cut off the two wooden panels of the door on either side and attach the planters according to the instructions in the picture. The planters serve as supports for the garden bench. All you have to do is decorate with plants and that’s it!
The gardening season has almost started, and maybe even started for some of you. The problem of lack of space is what we often experience not only indoors but also outdoors. If you are one of those people, it is high time to start thinking about how to include all of the flowers, plants, and herbs that you want in your small outdoor space. There are some space-saving solutions out there, and hanging and vertical planters are the leaders. Today I'd like to share these to help you save space and expand whatever you want.
Ladder-like planters are one of the most popular solutions for small gardens, patios and balconies. The principle of saving space is simple: you just put one planter on top of another and that's it. You can vary the size of the planters, the height, the color of the ladder, etc. - it's entirely up to you. Such planters are very easy to make, no purchase is required.
The principle of stacking is another great idea that doesn't require any skills. Just take your planters and stack them on top of each other. It's about securing them well. The planters can be ash, wood, plastic, china, or other, and you get many types in one without losing too much floor space.
Vertical planters for boxes and pallets
You can build a whole planting system out of boxes or pallets and grow herbs or whatever you want there. The good idea is to add boards to mark the plants.
