A Potting Bench is the perfect addition for every garden. Not only is a Potting Bench stylish and attractive, but it is very versatile and practical as well.
By utilizing a Potting Bench, you can have all of your seeds, pots, and gardening utensils within easy reach. You can store items such as potting soil, pots, and planters on the bottom shelf. Your Potting Bench will double for many other activities, such as a work table, carving area, and any thing else you can imagine.
The Potting Bench is the perfect location for transplanting, rooting, pruning, and cutting your plants. Not only will your Potting Bench lend organization to your garden, but you will also save labor on your back and knees.
Many Potting Benches will contain a guard on the back to keep soil on your bench and not allow it to fall onto your deck or patio. This is also a wonderful way to keep your area clean and neat while keeping up to date with your planting needs.
The Potting Bench: Assembly and Purchase
You may decide to purchase your Potting Bench or build it yourself. There are many companies that will sell the specs, equipment needed, and even go so far as to pre drill the holes into your bench. If you build it yourself, you will also need to finish it.
Whether you purchase or build your Potting Bench, make sure that you have your bench weather proofed. Choices abound in coloring finishes and your decision on finishing your bench is limited only by your imagination, creativity, and outdoor decor.

Potting Bench and Your Back
As many gardeners can testify, the bending over to garden can take its toll on your back and can be a great source of back pain. With your potting bench you can avoid lifting and bending and work on your plants at your level. This is a much better alternative than overstraining your muscles planting and transplanting while on your knees. Not only will your garden look better with your Potting Bench, but your back will thank you for it too.
