Plans To Build Bucket Planter Boxes - These beautiful, inexpensive, and easy to make 5 gallon bucket planter boxes are an amazing solution to so many gardening issues - and can be made easily with simple 2 x4's! They look great on porches, patios, as well as in the landscape or garden. Both sets of plans for the 2 and 4 bucket planter boxes are included with the $10 purchase! (See original article about our planter boxes : https://oldworldgardenfarms.com/2020/03/22/5-gallon-bucket-planter/ )
The planter boxes hold either (4) 5-gallon buckets, or (2) 5-gallon buckets - and they are a perfect solution to growing vegetables, flowers, herbs and more. The planter boxes are raised off the ground to provide easy gardening access for gardeners of any age, and are great for gardeners young and old, and every age in between. And the perfect compact size is great for decks and porches. The 4 bucket planter measures 32" square x 29" tall - the 2 bucket planter measures 32" wide x 20" deep x 29" tall.
Instead of having to fill raised beds with loads of soil, simply fill 5 gallon buckets with soil, and place inside the planter box. At season's end, they can be emptied with ease into the compost bin and are ready to go year after year.
Built with inexpensive 2 x 4's, the attractive planter boxes are sturdy and strong and will hold up to the toughest of weather conditions. And can easily hold trellises, or wire mesh to grow crops vertically too. Sides can be finished off with wood or metal for a unique look.
Requires minimal tools and wood working knowledge to complete - a great project for beginners or experienced wood workers. All you need is Miter Saw or Circular Saw, drill, and a level or square to complete.
Simple, easy to follow, step by step plans are included for both the (4) 5-Gallon Bucket Planter Box, and a (2) 5-Gallong Bucket Planter Box.

Turned out great. I used cedar picket fence posts cut to size for the sides. I added D rings on the sides to hold garden stakes. Then used a garden fence weaved into posts to make an arch. I will have green pole beans going up one box’s side trellis. With bush beans planted in center of box. And cucumbers will climb up the other one with a trellis. Made two additional ones without trellis for tomatoes and peppers. Sealed with deck sealer so these will last years. Thank you so much.
I had someone build the 4 bucket planters. And it turned out perfect
I requested 4 large boxes as my Mother’s Day gift this year. Highly recommend!!! My teenage sons had no trouble following the instructions. These boxes are beautiful and will make gardening so much easier. We used pressure treated wood and corrugated metal panels.
I am so happy with this planter design and the instructions. They are clearly written with lots of pictures which I found most helpful being a rookie. I finished my first planter and gave it to my 94 year old mother for Mother’s Day. She loves it. I also received great customer service when I contacted Jim. He responded almost immediately and was very kind and helpful. You won’t be disappointed.
