For a change this is not a collection of bizarre items that have been recycled as planters. Rather it is a list of inspiring designs several of which will encourage the DIY enthusiast to reach for the toolbox. Most are made of wood, but some use other materials. These fifteen planter boxes are described in an article which I found on the Garden Lovers Club website.
There’s no denying that traditional gardens are gorgeous, but they require a lot of work. For those of us who have small backyards, busy schedules, or may want to switch plants out or around the yard, a traditional garden can be hard to maintain. Planter boxes are a great solution for both gardeners without space, and for gardeners without a lot of time. They’re perfect for keeping quick-spreading plants (like bamboo) contained and under control. Yes, planter boxes are a great solution to a lot of gardening problems, but plastic or terra cotta planters can look cheap and clash with your personal style.

1. Simple Wooden Planter Box with Plastic Inserts
We start this collection with the simplest offering: a long, but narrow planter box constructed out of 2x4s. Three plastic tubs with holes drilled for drainage help keep the plants separate and prevents the wood from rotting away.
2. Sloping Slide Planters
To add some unique architectural interest to any backyard, we recommend changing up square, horizontal planters for these sloped planters extending like sun rays from this corner garden bed.
