If you’re an avid gardener, you know how tough gardening can be on your back and your knees. If a potting bench isn’t already part of your outdoor furniture, take a look at these plans for some designs that will keep you busy for a weekend or two.

We recommend building your own outdoor sink station that can also serve as a potting bench.

The biggest issues are making sure your bench can handle the weight of heavy pots and plants and remember when they are watered they are even heavier. You also want something that is easy to clean and won’t hold mold and dirt.
