Bench-planter makes a petunia barricade.
The bench is made of parallel 2 by 6's set on brackets bolted to 4-by-4 posts. Tongue-and-groove redwood 2 by 6's frame the 6- to 10-foot-long planter boxes. Running across the center of each, a capped threaded rod keeps the sides from bulging. The boxes rest on the deck beams; this allows ample room for plants to grow while maintaining the low profile.
The Gonces designed the bench-planter with San Francisco architect Daniel Osborne as part of their house, built out on a San Francisco Bay Slough.
