I have been wanting to build a garden planter so I can plant a garden (have been wanting to do this for the last couple of years).Â Unfortunately, other projects have taken priority, as often happens with projects I want to do for my own benefit!Â Always end up working on building or creating things for others as gifts, and I end up pushing my wants to the back of the line!Â I had a little extra time on my hands, so I thought I would at least start the process by researching some ideas for DIY garden planters.Â All I can say is WOW!Â There are some amazing planters out there and some very creative people!Â Most of the planters I decided to list as possibilities for my planter look doable (except one, which I’m pretty sure you’ll recognize which one that is in the list below! :-)Â ).Â Here are 10 DIY planter ideas I found that I think look like something the average DIYer can build (except for that one, like I mentioned above!):
1. Raised Garden Bed with Separate Sections
I really like the fact that this one has separate sections included in the build to make it easy to keep all your fruits and veggies separated and easily identifiable!Â Also love the two tiered look!
2.Â Cedar Raised Garden Beds (Ana White plans)
I love that this one looks very simple to build, but yet it does have some molding and design to it instead of just being a rectangular box.
3. DIY Raised Garden Planter Boxes
This one also looks fairly simple to build, but has a nice top border to give it a nice, clean design
4. Elevated garden bed
I love how this one is tall so you don’t have to bend down to plant or pick fruits and veggies.
5. Dynamic Raised Garden Bed
I love the U-shaped look of this one, and I really like the trellis on the back.
6. Raised Garden Bed Supermodel
I find this one particularly amazing!Â I really love how much gardening space exists, and I love the look and design of this one.
7. Self Watering DIY Planter
Love that this one waters the garden for you!
8.Â Garden Planter with Trellis
In case you can’t tell, this is THE one I spoke of earlier! ;-)Â I think this one is a bit (okay more than a bit) beyond my capabilities!
9. Raised planter bed with trellis
I love the bottom of the legs on this one as well as the trellis.Â This one is a bit small, but very pretty!
10.Â DIY Wood and Corrugated Metal Planter
Love the mix of wood and metal on this one!
Now I just have to choose which one I want to build, although this will probably be a winter project so I will have the planter ready for next Spring.Â Which would you build?Â I would love to have your thoughts and choices in the comments!
