Perfect planter box bench
By Judith from ROBERTSDALE,AL on 11/30/2013
This arrived in two boxes. The planter boxes were assembled..yeah. All I had to do was put the boxes where I wanted them on my patio, then connect with the bench part. 8 screws later and it was complete!! That was easy!! Can't wait to get my meyer lemon tree and brasilberry plants put into their new home.

Beautiful and functional. Great planters
Cypress Wood Potting Bench
By Vicki from PORTLAND,OR on 11/27/2013
The potting bench arrived in a damaged/patched box which was taped over. Although there was no shipping damage there was a 1" chip off the corner of one of the pieces and there was a split in the brace under the table top where a screw had been attached. I don't believe these will show but I will have to stabilize the bracing with another screw just to make sure the table top is more secure. I haven't yet put it together so I don't know how to rate the ease of assembly. All in all the product looks attractive and I am hoping the results after assembly will be great.

If you're looking for a whiskey barrel planter, but afraid it will rot over time, this is for you. Great color, relatively light, realistic look and perfect size. Just drill 4-5 holes in the bottom, and you're all set. I'd buy these again, but I don't think I'll have to.
Just the right size!

I was a little disappointed that this planter cannot be left out in temps below 40 degrees; it could have been in the description, but I don't remember it. I will be using it for Christmas arrangements only, so here's hoping it will make it through the Christmas Holiday; we don't usually have cold temps for extended periods of time, so hopefully, they will not suffer.

Choice Cultivation: What You Need to Know About Four Common Planter Materials
- Plastic planters are inexpensive, uncompromising when exposed to the elements, and readily available in styles to suit every taste.
- Plastic can be molded to resemble organic materials like wood and stone. It also looks great in fanciful colors, unique patterns, and surprising textures.
- Lightweight by nature, plastic planters are more portable than those made from heavier materials e.g., stone. That makes them perfect for those with a penchant for rearranging their outdoor space.
- High-density plastic is tough and won't crack when dropped, knocked over, or set off balance by a sudden gust of wind. Use dense plastic containers for all your plants, not just sprouts and bloomers displayed via deck rails and balconies.
- Like plastic, stone can weather almost any weather condition.
- Stone planters aren't just heavy-duty, most are just plain heavy. Be strategic when determining planter placement as stone containers are difficult to move.
- While not always convenient, stone's heft is an asset that makes it virtually indestructible and the perfect choice for green thumbs who live in harsh climates.
- Aesthetically, stone exudes classic elegance that intensifies with age. It wears distress well and won't ever go out of fashion.
- For the budget-conscious: Consider choosing a planter of reconstructed or cast stone, which is just as robust but less expensive than natural cut stone.
- Clay planters are inexpensive and an icon of garden culture. They're always in style and readily available in sizes to fit everything from tiny cacti to towering yucca plants.
- Because unglazed clay, like stone, is a porous material, it's not as water-retentive as plastic or wood. Unglazed clay pots and planters are best for those who either live in wet climates or love brandishing a watering can.
- Glazed clay, though similarly fragile, retains water better than its unglazed counterpart. The glazing process also lends clay pots a unique glossy aesthetic and color options beyond the familiar matte orange. A perfect way to add pizzazz to your planter collection.
- Glazed or unglazed, clay is fragile and won't withstand impact like stone or high-density plastic. It's also sensitive to subtle temperature shifts, contracting when cold, expanding in heat, so reserve your clay planters for indoor greenery, displaying them outdoors only in mild weather.
- Wood planters are extremely versatile in both style and utility. They retain heat better than other planter materials, conserving water by maintaining soil moisture levels. Truly green.
- Treated wood won't rot or split and holds fast through erratic weather conditions almost as well as stone. But not all treatments are equal. Some aren't compatible with consumables. The wrong wood treatment can render your garden's good eats inedible.
- Wood, unlike other materials, varies by species. For instance, pine is less durable than cedar or teak, and redwood won't rot or attract hungry insects. Know your environment to choose the right wood for your space.
- Visually, wood brings out the beauty of green spaces better than any other planter material. It evokes the rustic simplicity - think picket fences, sunny skies, and breezy hues. Au naturel.
