26 planters that you can make yourself

If space is a problem or you don’t want to dig your garden to grow plants, planters are a good option. Here are some DIY ideas you can make in a few days.

Raised wooden planter with benches in stairs

The wooden planter makes everyday work easier. Especially since the benches are ideal for growing vegetables, different types of aromatic herbs, and even flowers. This form of planter is the perfect solution for having a beautiful garden when the soil is poor, or when you just need a simpler way. They also provide good drainage. Plants grown in raised planters are healthier, weeds are easier to control, and watering and fertilization are exactly where you need them. For those interested in those raised beds, this DIY project is easy to complete in one afternoon, without spending a fortune. However, here is all you need: wooden planks; favor redwood or cedar to prevent mold, fabric against weeds, stainless screws, wood pliers, a drill, a saw and a stapler. To facilitate the flow of water, it will be necessary to deposit small balls of clay or wood chips, or any material that drains well, the plants don’t like drowning. The construction needs a strong base enough to support the weight.
