Every outdoor living space needs some greenery to liven up the place, but sometimes space can be limited or lacking opportunity to plant your pretty gardens. This minimal and modern planter is a great way to designate areas for easy greenery and plants. You can move it wherever, whenever!
- Measuring tape
- 2x4 Standard lumber
- Miter saw
- Belt sander
- Wood nails (long enough to go through your 2x4)
Measure the length of your 2x4, depending on how big you would like your planter to be. We wanted simple squares, so we cut each 2x4 15" for the first planter and 13" for the second planter. You can make them any size or shape you want! Simply make markings with a pencil to indicate where you would like to cut.
Using your miter saw, cut where you measured in the previous step. Depending on how tall you want your planter to be, repeat until all 2x4's are cut. We cut 12 sections of 2x4 for the first planter and 10 sections of 2x4 for the second planter
Sand each 2x4 to remove any splinters until the surfaces are nice and smooth. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Begin from the bottom up, lay two pieces of lumber on a firm foundation. Crisscrossing two new pieces on the top, secure them altogether using your wood nails and a hammer. You may want to use two nails for the base and then use one nail for the remaining 2x4's. You also might need an extra pair of hands to help hold the wood securely so it does not shift and ensure it is perfectly centered until complete. Repeat for second planter.
Simply place your plant or flowers in the planter and enjoy! You can easily place the planter directly into your garden and plant your flowers or other greenery directly into the ground. This could be great for climbing plants or plants that need some extra support. Enjoy!
