After seeing how lovely they are when positioned on your shed, you may want to come back for one to hang under your kitchen window!
Flower Box For Shed: DIY window box planters on a garden shed
I love gardening, especially growing flowers and vegetables. My favorite thing about it is being outside and getting some exercise too! This DIY project is perfect for anyone looking to add a little greenery into their home. And let me tell you, it looks great.
The materials needed for this project include heavy gauge greenhouse plastic, stencils, paint, and water. If you don’t want to use plastic, you could always opt for wood or metal. You’ll also need a drill/driver, screwdriver, cutting mat, pencil, tape measure, gloves, clippers, and screws.

Flower Box For Shed: Cutting the wood
There are so many ways to make a basic crate or box out of wood. You could go the easy route and buy pre-cut lumber from a home center store. Or, you could do it yourself. This tutorial uses simple hand tools and common materials like 2x4s and plywood. If you want to learn how to build a small crate or box, follow along with our step-by-step instructions.
Flower Box For Shed: Assembling the window box planter
This project took me about three hours to build, including cutting out the pieces and assembling it. If you want to make one yourself, here are some tips:
1. Cut the slats to size. You’ll need four 2x4s cut to length.
2. Drill pilot holes in each end of each piece of lumber. This keeps the boards from splitting.
3. Screw together the ends and sides.
4. Attach the bottom board to the rest of the structure.
5. Fill the container with soil.
6. Plant your favorite flowers or herbs.
Flower Box For Shed: Adding bottom supports
The best way to make sure your box doesn’t tip over is to add some extra support under it. This is especially important if you’re shipping boxes full of heavy items. You’ll want to use something like this DIY project to keep everything stable.
Flower Box For Shed: Preparing for plants
The most important thing you can do to prepare for spring planting is to make sure your soil is ready. If you don’t, you’ll spend hours digging up weeds, fertilizing, and watering. Then you’ll end up spending even more time weeding out pests and diseases.
If you’re starting seeds indoors, you’ll want to plant them now. You won’t have to worry about transplanting seedlings into pots later. And if you start seeds outside, you’ll have plenty of time to cover them with mulch and wait for nature to take over.
Adding decorative wood pieces
I recently had some leftover wood scraps that needed to go somewhere. I thought about how many times I’ve seen people put up those ugly plastic window box covers over the summer and wondered why we don’t just make something prettier out of wood. I decided to try my hand at making some simple wooden window box covers. They’re easy enough to do and look great!
