With summer around the corner, our gardens are officially in full swing. From planting bulbs to picking out new pots and planters, nothing in our gardens is safe come spring. But while our gardens might be spiffying up rapidly, our garden workspace is most likely in complete disarray, with pots and tools everywhere. The good news: a potting bench is the perfect spot to corral your mess of tools and supplies into a convenient workstation that you'll use time and time again.
What makes a potting bench perfect depends on your individual needs. Benches can range from a freestanding table with a work surface to a unit that includes shelving, drawers, cabinets, a removable sink or bucket hole, and much more. And there's no need to dish out your whole gardening budget on a new potting bench. We've rounded up options that are under $100, including one under $60. But, if you want to splurge on a piece that you'll keep for years to come, we also found a handful of gorgeous and durable potting benches. The best part? So many of these potting benches can play double duty as a piece of porch décor or even an outdoor bar cart for parties.
Looking to add a few more features to your dream garden this year? We suggest looking into a raised garden bed, too. Keep those critters away from the plants you worked so hard to pot.
