A wooden planter is a great way of creating a bed to grow plants and vegetables in if you are short of space. Your wooden planter can be adapted to fit any corner, depending on your needs. Make sure you get treated timber, it can be stained in any color and then it won’t rot. Whichever type of design you choose, be sure water can drain freely out the bottom and plan where that water will go. Drained water trapped in a cavity below the planter could cause decking to rot. Most decorative plants need less than 1 foot of soil depth. Rather than loading a tall planter with unnecessary soil, build a shelf inside.

You can build a simple seating/planter/arbor project to create a quiet, private space in your yard or on a deck. It will provide shade and comfort as well as a welcome screen from neighbors. You can install it on an existing patio or build it on your deck together which will make your yard look stylish! Click the link below and get some inspiration for your backyard!
