I used cedar boards for some extra wet-weather protection, but you can use any wood you like and add a sealant for protection against the elements for your potting bench. Enjoy!
Instead of burning old wooden pallets or tossing them into a landfill, follow our step-by-step instructions to transform one or two pallets into a beautiful and functional potting bench.
A putter shed is a great way to increase your outdoor storage area. We built ours using a plan we saw in a magazine, but most lumberyards and home centers will have plans and kits available.
This is a cutting diagram with measurements for a wooden hook to hang a clay flower pot. Scroll down the pager and find this project under the Outdoor Projects category.
This potting bench is 48 inches wide and 24 inches deep. It has a small shelf above the actual potting area. This upper shelf is handy for storing empty pots, pruning shears, plants and other essentials. It also has a lower shelf for keeping a stack of pots or anything else you might need in your potting area.
Simple project to protect tender plants in winter. Used to protect tender plants or rooted cuttings during the colder months, a cold frame is simply a box with a transparent lid or cover. It acts as a passive solar energy collector and reservoir. During the day, the sun’s rays heat the air and soil in the frame; at night, the heat absorbed by the soil radiates out, keeping the plants warm.
Cold frames are a great way to get a start on the spring planting season. This cold frame is very simple to build and should last a long time. It is 2 X 4 ft and made mostly of cedar. There are some modifications that were made at the end of the project you may want to check out first.
