One of the many things I admire about my Mom is her green thumb. Her front porch is beautifully dressed with flowers that she pots each Spring. This winter, I had the idea to build her a potting bench so that she could stand comfortably while she plants her flowers instead of spending hours bent over her pots. The spaced slats on the bench allow for dirt to fall through while potting and the crate below to catches it to reduce mess and waste. The hardware cloth on the back provides a great space for hanging gardening tools.
