When is a backyard redwood planter more than just a planter? A redwood planter is a fabulous and popular addition to outdoor areas, especially since planters can add gardening space to backyards with limited room. A redwood planter can also complement redwood decks, fences, garden structures and outdoor furniture.
Yet, plans and inspiration for redwood planters can come by thinking outside the box. Whether your ideas for redwood planters stem from the need to garden with limited space, add style and character to an outdoor gathering place, or both — Mendocino Forest Products can help you go beyond the confines of just building a redwood box.
While sunlight direction and the seasons are in constant movement, your backyard stays stationary. Or does it? Consider a raised redwood planter on wheels. Getting plants the necessary sun and rain or sheltering them from in-climate weather is far easier when you can simply roll them to the right places. Of course, an added benefit is realized when trying to find a spot for new redwood lawn furniture such as a bench or chair to match the beauty of the outdoor space.
A little creativity and good design plans can magnify the beauty of redwood planters and backyard plants and save even more space. While more complex to build, multi-sided and terraced designs can show an inspired and imaginative touch.
Another popular design, which adds both the benefits of planters and some functionality, is the combination of a redwood planter and bench. This design is perfect for outdoor get-togethers because it offers the benefits of the planter box and a cozy place to sit and enjoy time with family and friends. The typical design incorporates the planter on one or both sides of a bench, but you can also incorporate a circular bench around ornamental trees.
Whether you decide to design your own, hire a contractor or just want more ideas and inspiration, Mendocino Forest Products can help get you started creating redwood planters that are both beautiful and multi-functional.
