Wooden Garden Planters/ Functional addition to your outdoor décor by: Glenn Mast
Wood garden planters are a beautiful and functional addition to any outdoor setting. Whether they are placed on a small balcony or within a large garden, a well-chosen wood planter will both complement and enhance the décor. Wood planters are durable, sturdy and easily crafted into different styles and finishes. A colored stain lets the grain of the wood show through while adding interest and texture. You can get more creative by adding a stenciled pattern to the wood for a wonderful effect.
The versatility of wood planters is unlimited. They can be used as window boxes, hanging containers and self standing planters. These planters are striking at front doors, on patios, in gardens and lawns.
You have a lot of choices out there. Here are some tidbits of information I have gathered. Also ask a gardening friend or your local shop about their thoughts as you decide what type of material is right for you. Quite often it is hard to find a variety in retail stores, so an online solution might be best.
Extending the life of your wood planter is easy and requires very little effort. If you decide to treat the wood with a stain or waterproofing agent prior to planting it, make sure it is a non-toxic agent. Next, line the planter with heavy duty plastic. The plastic will keep water away from the wood. Fill the bottom of the planter with a layer of crushed rock followed by soil, leaving about three inches from the top.
You are now ready to plant flowers, plants or vegetables from your local nursery. You cannot go wrong by spreading the love of flowers, plants and vegetable gardens. One of life's little pleasures is the world of gardening.
