Atlantic Outdoor Wood Potting Bench with Recessed Storage
How often have you been in the position of starting a project and regardless how prepared you thought you were, you found that you weren’t quite organized enough? Invariably this means having to stop midway and get something to finish the task. This can be especially frustrating when you are gardening and are preparing flowers to plant and you have run out of something or can’t place your hands on a necessary tool. With any luck, whatever you need is close by, perhaps in the shed, and you can finish the job with little time lost. Whether you lack ample surface space or storage is almost moot. It is frustrating nonetheless. If you could design your own furniture, one that addresses all your needs, you would in a heartbeat. However, wouldn’t it be nicer if someone heard your complaints and did this for you? If you are an avid gardener, The Atlantic Outdoor Wood Potting Bench with Recessed Storage will be that one piece you wondered how you did without for so long.
What this potting bench gives you that an ordinary workbench fails to is forethought. Using a three-tiered system, employing all three levels allows you to be as efficient as possible. The bottom one is large enough to store and have at the ready both your tools and raw materials, such as potting soil. The middle is your workhorse. With your tools and the potting soil that you need on the right, you can use the left side to prepare plants to go directly in the ground or be transplanted into new pots. Having a section that is slotted as is this one, means that any excess dirt, the labels from the original pots or really anything can drop into one of the slots to a collection area below and in no way interfere with your job. Once you have finished transplanting them to a new pot, you can display them above on the shelf – out of the way.
Apart from being one of the more practical pieces you will own, you will be remarkably pleased with this hardwood bench’s ability to fit in. With clean lines, indeed a simple and understated look, it will appeal to you whether your taste tends toward traditional or contemporary.
