| OUTDOOR PROJECTS | PROPAGATING BENCH
Dimensions: 48" wide by 24" deep and 30" high (1.2m x 0.6m x 0.8m)
Design: John Terins
This versatile unit does triple duty in the garden - it serves as a cold frame, a propagating shed and as a raised planter. Created specially for the WRCEA's designer series of garden projects, it is made from durable Western Red Cedar, a naturally long lasting wood that is easy to work and finish. The clear acrylic lid can be set in different positions to adjust ventilation or removed completely so the unit can be used as a potting bench or planter. Garden pots and tools can be stored within easy reach on the lower section. Legs are optional so the unit can be set on the ground and used as a conventional cold frame for propagating seeds and cuttings, hardening off seedlings and over wintering tender plants.
Designer's Tip: Stain the entire unit a soft gray green for a slightly weathered patina that blends naturally with the green garden environment.
