D.I.Y Planter Box

There’s no denying that the thought of a lush garden is amazing, but they require a lot of work. For those of us who have small backyards, busy schedules or want to create a garden that is niche to a type of flower, planter boxes are a great solution.

I remember when I was younger making a stylish planter box with my step mum and then replicating it as a gift for my nanas birthday! When we got Frankie (our Boxer puppy) Georgias stepsister Nicole checked in on her for the first week, which we really appreciated so wanted to say thank you. As you will know if you follow our blog, I like to get creative with gifts, be it a repainted bike, upcycled chair or in this case – a planter box, gifts with thought are always the best received!

Nicole bakes amazing cakes (check out her Instagram) so the planter box will help her grow colourful flowers to put on the cakes she makes. Planter boxes are great for things like lilies, tulips, daisies or for mini vegetable gardens. I also got some new Ryobi Powertools from their One+ range that I wanted to take for a test run (very happy).

Handy tip – buying the wood, this can start costing some serious coin, I looked around for the best deal.  This day it was from Musgroves, I managed to pick everything up for $30 NZD. Musgroves sells recycled building materials and timber, so super cool for a look around too, I could easily get lost for hours looking at their range of character pieces.
