diy planter benches
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!
