Raised Garden Bed Out of Dresser

Here is taking recycling to extremes at least one might think.  I think it is a creative way to make a raised garden bed out of dresser and a vertical garden. Making it useful instead of ending up in the landfill.

Raised garden beds and planting boxes out of an old dresser

Fill the dresser with soil.  You can add lattice for growing climbing vegetables such as cukes and beans.  When starting seeds you can use it much as a cold frame by adding plastic or glass until the weather is nice.

As the weather gets nice, you can remove the glass or plastic on the dresser frame and let mother nature work her magic.

Vertical Dresser Drawer Garden


Build ladders to house the dresser drawers along a fence line for extra planting.

Use two by fours to build shelves that the dresser drawers can slide into.

Certainly a quick way to start a raised garden bed and add extra vertical space for gardening.

Happy Gardening!
