Tree Box Holiday Planter
Most people who plant large trees purchase them in wood box containers.
You can find discarded tree boxes in dumpsters sitting in front of newly planted yards or piling up at a contractors yard.
Such a shame!
Once a person plants their tree, they look for a way to dispose of the large planters.
I'll take them, and you should too.
Re-purpose wood containers as holiday planters, like this creative design I saw at the Renaissance Esmerelda Hotel in Palm Desert!
This design caught my eye and is easy to duplicate.
Holiday planters can be expensive, especially one this size.
If you notice a neighbor doing a landscape project, ask them if you can have a couple of their tree boxes.
This scrap wood tree box container takes on a new life as a silver holiday planter.
Tree branches are also re-purposed as a sculptural tree.
See what a little spray paint can do!
Tree Boxes as Raised Vegetable Planters!
Another idea for using tree boxes in the garden is to plant them with vegetables.
Tree boxes make fantastic raised garden beds.
Watch what my friend and landscape designer, Marilee Kuhlman did with hers.
