This simple and elegant planter bench project is ideal for the porch, patio, or pool. Filled with plants and flowers, it will define a corner of the porch or patio with style.
Featuring all straight cuts and modular construction, the project allows the builder to decide what combination of planter boxes and connecting benches works best for their own space. Bills of material are included for individual boxes and benches, as well as for the combination pictured.
The planter bench as pictured is built from redwood for its beauty, strength, and durability, although other woods can be substituted if properly treated. The finished planter boxes measure about 20.5 inches square by 17 inches tall, and the benches measure 36 inches long by 15 inches wide.
