A staircase plant stand provides a simple way to give container plants of various heights room to grow and soak in the sun.
Cool Benefits to a Staircase Plant Stand
Fast & Frugal
- The materials to build the stand cost just $100 Canadian. It will be less in the United States.
- It’s designed for a beginner builder and can be made in an hour or two.
- So many different fruits, vegetables, and herbs grow nicely in containers.
- On a stand like this one, you can move the pots around to suit the light needs of the various plants and keep everyone happy.
- It’s also very handy to have everything in one place for watering.
Tons of Growing Space
- If you make use of the steps, side supports, and the top copper bar, there is a lot of room for potted, climbing, and hanging plants.
- If you get the wood cuts done at the store, you should be able to fit all the materials in a mid-size car. That’s what I did.
- Use it outdoors in the summer and bring it indoors for winter plant storage in front of sliding glass doors.
