How To: Make an Awesome $7.50 Planter Box

Make an Awesome $7.50 Planter Box

How to build a simple planter box from reclaimed pallet wood and hardwood fence palings. Planter boxes come in all shapes and sizes and mine is a little different than most. It's taller and narrower than many of the ones you see.

I really like the design because it's a bit different and it doesn't take up much room due to its narrowness. It would be great on a balcony, deck or next to the front door.

There are no set rules regarding how big or small you have to make your planter box. It all depends where the planter box is going and how many plants you want grow in it and how big those plants are going to be.
