Do I need to line a wooden planter?
You need to line your planter box if it’s made from wood or metal. The liner will help prolong the planter’s life. You don’t need to use a liner if the planter is made using plastic, ceramic, or concrete as they are quite durable by themselves.
What is the best wood to use for planter boxes?
There are several types of lumber to choose from:
- Pressure treated or composite boards are chemically treated to resist termites, mold and other damage.
- Cedar, white oak and redwood naturally resist termites and other insects.
- Soft woods such as pine work best for indoor planters.
How do you fill a wooden planter box?
Possibilities include crushed aluminum cans, plastic milk jugs, plastic water bottles, plastic soda pop bottles and crunched, empty potting soil and soil amendment bags. Upending a stack of nursery pots inside a planter box also works well.
