If you've been bitten by the green thumb bug lately, then you're not alone. A home garden is a great way to destress while also saving money. You can easily grow some of your favorite spices, vegetables, and herbs right in your own backyard. Growing your own ingredients can offset some grocery costs in the long run, and taking care of your plants has proven to be a great way to relax and unwind.
If you've already been doing this and find that you have various plants sitting around in pots, then your next step may be moving your plants into one shared space -- a planter box. Instead of buying one, you can easily make a DIY planter box of your own to fit your herbs, flowers, and vegetables.
There are various types of planter boxes, from the standard wooden box to raised options with details and features such as benches on the sides. You can also have planters that sit at your window for a beautiful display, and deck rail planter boxes that add to the décor. By creating your own DIY planter box, you're giving yourself a lot of creative freedom in the details department.
We're going to learn how to build an elegant wooden planter box. After you've created your DIY planter box feel free to paint and adorn it to fit your personal style.
