After I built my deck I had tons of 1X1 scraps about 18-inches long. They were left over from the spindles in the railing. I wasn’t sure what to do with them so I decided to make a couple planters for my mom. The inside of the planters are lined with galvanized steel flashing because I was concerned the plant roots would creep through the cracks of the walls. Naturally they are pressure treated pine. I just used some left over deck stain. In this photo they are about 3 years old, so they have held up very well.
