Product Description
  • Build a Garden
  • Planter boxes can be set up on any flat surface.

Octagon planter boxes offer attractive design and large soil capacity to grow deep-rooted flowers and vegetables, perennial fruits, and small trees on your deck or patio. The planter's rounded shape is both eye-catching and easy to negotiate, providing an ideal centerpiece for your container garden.

Octagon planters are especially great paired with matching garden trellises to support decorative climbers and flowering vines such as honeysuckle, morning glory, roses and clematis.

Like our raised garden beds, octagon planters are made from durable cedar protected by a non-toxic finish that is safe for vegetable gardening. The planter's slatted cedar bottom provides excellent drainage on non-absorbent surfaces such as concrete.

Garden planters are available in endless shapes and sizes, including custom-size planters. If you need help, please give us a call for tips and advice planning the perfect garden.

Choosing Sizes and Options

What size planter is best for your garden? It depends on the size and shape of your growing area, as well as considerations such as accessibility and soil depth requirements. Consider these tips when planning your garden:

  • Choose your planter size
  • Width - Planter boxes 1.5 to 2 feet wide provide space to grow vegetables in a small footprint. Narrow planters work well along a railing or fence, and as garden privacy screens, with matching trellises. Wide planters provide space to accommodate larger plants, even small trees, if you have the room. If you're limited on space, choose a narrow planter and build up to increase soil capacity.
  • Length - Planter boxes can be any length to run along a fence or enclose a deck or patio. Short planters can be used as corner accents, or flower boxes around benches and porches. Planters up to 6 feet long are available above, let us know if you need something longer.
  • Height - Planter boxes come in six heights, from 7.5 to 35 inches. Tall planters provide soil space for deep rooted vegetables, flowering vines and perennial shrubs. Short planters are useful for growing salad greens and short season herbs and flowers. Consider your garden's root depth requirements when choosing the height of your planters.

All of our planter boxes are made from durable cedar protected by a non-toxic waterproof sealant that is safe for vegetable gardening. Planter boxes are available in many shapes and sizes, including custom-sized planters. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask. We’ll help you build the perfect garden!

Setup and Assembly

  • Planter Box with Single Wall Trellis
  • Looking for Garden Trellises?

    Trellises are available for any size planter! See prices and sizes.

Planter boxes can be set up on any ground surface that is reasonably flat and level, such as a deck or patio, rooftop, driveway or parking lot. The planter’s slatted cedar bottom lifts soil an inch off the ground and provides excellent drainage on non-absorbent surfaces such as concrete. For gardens on dirt and lawn, take a look at our raised garden beds.

Follow these simple instructions to assemble your planter. It’s recommended to add 1-2 inches of gravel to the bottom of the planter before filling it with soil. This will help prevent soil from washing out over time, and improve drainage and aeration for healthy soil conditions.
