No garden is complete without a potting bench. A timeless fixture helps to create the backdrop to any garden surrounding. Potting benches have been best known for being a handy element seen in working gardens to aid avid gardeners for preparing and potting plants. They have evolved recycled wood to a range of metals and polyresin plastics. However, this trendy style furniture noticed during the summer season can become quite a serviceable and purposeful purchase that can serve a multitude of functions year round.

Since most potting benches are at counter height, they can be transformed into bars and consoles for preparing and serving food and drinks to guests. Shelves which once housed clay pots can now be replaced with glassware. Pull out bins for storing compost or soil can now be home for collecting trash or recyclables and bottom cabinets allow for extra storage needed to host the perfect party.

Some potting benches have been designed with dry sinks that can easily be converted into working sinks, instantly you now have use of an outdoor kitchen! Remember, if you don't already own a potting bench, be creative. Choose a piece of furniture like an old dresser or console table that serves at a good height and then properly protect your piece accordingly from water, soil, food or sunlight to insure its life year after year.
