The wide rims and base trim of these planters gives a refined and sophisticated look to a simple planter bench. Use a stain and exterior polyurethane to give the seat a stylish look.
Combine a planter and a comfortable bench for your patio or deck with planter bench plans that are easy-to-build and attractive additions for your home. Use clear pine for an economical outdoor bench that can be painted or stained or choose cedar or redwood for beauty and durability.
Customize the plans to the size of your deck or patio, and use complementary building materials for a built-in, designer look.
Treated lumber is practical and weather resistant, so your planter bench will look good and require little maintenance. Use exterior stains or a wood sealant to protect your piece and be sure to use stainless or galvanized fasteners to prevent rust and corrosion.
Add a spacious L-shaped seat to your deck that provides ample room for guest and flowering plants. A simple seat with a planter on either end is charming and would look great tucked into a quiet corner of the yard.
