Garden box with pole for hanging baskets

The front entry to our house has a big landing space by the front door. It’s not big enough for patio furniture. But any pot of plants we have put there have always looked dwarfed by the space. I finally decided what it needed was a big planter, with some vertical interest. After thinking about it a bit, I came up with this.

It’s 4’ x 2’, and the hanging planter pole is 6’ tall, which nicely fills the space it occupies.

The cat in the third picture is my garage companion. She likes to hang out with me when I’m working on projects, and is completely undisturbed by the dust collector, air compressor, and table saw. Of course, she feels she has to inspect every project I work on.

It’s a really nice build – can’t wait to see what it looks like when the plants are in and have settled into the flower bed! Do post updates mate!

it’s best when you see that even your pets love your DIY jobs don’t you think! Everybody needs to enjoy a little bit more wood in their lives, even if it’s a simple build like this cute little hanger box thing! I’d say that it’s very well built and functional too! Good job!

Wow!! It is awesome Fundygo. I liked it so much. Gardening is my favorite hobby. I believe that plants have a major role in enhancing a home. I really like the plant box you have shared here. I was searching for such a piece to place in my house.
