Potting benches are functional pieces of outdoor garden furniture that not only allow you to pot your plants with ease, but offer all sorts of storage for your gardening tools. Cabinets, drawers, and hooks work to keep your tools easily accessible and organized. Once you’ve invested money in high-quality trowels, hand rakes, and pruners, the last thing you should be doing is tossing them into a random garden bin.
Not only do potting benches serve a functional purpose, they can be quite beautiful. With designs and styles ranging from modern to farmhouse-inspired, we’ve compiled some of the best potting benches available online.
