Is it planting time yet where you live? Here in Colorado not much will survive outside until after Mother’s Day, so I am only in the planning stages. This year I will be doing only container gardening, so making planters is on my to-do list. The elevated planter and the square planter will be happening for sure. Let me show you some of my favorite DIY wood planter tutorials!
***1oo Things 2 Do made these wonderful privacy planters, and I think they would look great lining a side yard that meets up with the neighbor’s yard. Not only do they look great, they provide a privacy screen and a trellis for climbing plants!
***Remodelaholic came up with this elevated planter which I just love. What a simple way to grow vegetables or flowers while providing comfort. This year I am going to try and grow some veggies in planters like this to discourage my dog from reaching them. Not sure if this will work or not, but I will update you for sure!
***These criss-cross planters that Centsational Girl made have a wonderful, classic feel. You could easily use these in a more farmhouse-style house, or a modern one. I think Lilac bushes would look gorgeous in a couple of these!
***How about these paver planters from Classy Clutter? She really came up with a unique take on an outdoor planter, and I love that she added the numbers for visual interest.
***Make It and Love it originally designed this as a fairy garden planter for her kids, but it will work perfectly for housing flowers or veggies. She suggests using reclaimed wood, but new wood will work as well.
***This tiered planter by Ana White is perfect for cascading flowers. Every year I plant a lot of nasturtiums, and this would look great later in the season when the vines are growing long and stretching out.
Do any of these tutorials look do-able to you? I will be trying a couple of them and I will give you a peek into how it works out. I still have a couple of months before I need a planter, but I know the time will pass quickly.
Have a happy day, friends!
