DOU­BLE DUTY

NZ Gardener - Gifts from the Gardens - - Diy -

Po­si­tion old din­ing room buf­fets and side­boards be­neath the eaves of your house or garage and use them to house plants or gar­den tools. An old kitchen cup­board can be turned on its side and re­pur­posed as a use­ful stor­age and pot­ting bench (the cup­board door opens down­wards). Add sup­port to the door with a chain so it can take the weight of the equip­ment you need while pot­ting. Got an un­used raised bed? Add legs to it and a bot­tom shelf to al­low for easy gar­den­ing and stor­age be­low. Or make your own by mak­ing a wood box, then add posts in each cor­ner for height.
