In this video I build a custom planter bench with a two tear raised bed in the back. I have been thinking about this project for three years now.And when some friends tore out their deck, and asked if I wanted the cedar, I knew I could finally build it!//Michael Alm

The total footprint of the piece is 12′ x 7′. The bench itself is 9′ long. Plenty of room for my friends when I host BBQs. Watch the video from Michael Alm for more info:

And this is what you might call landscape furniture—custom seating built right into the terrain. Done right, it can create a little oasis in your yard or even on your deck. The cedar lumber for this planter bench costs far less than built teak furniture but is just as weather resistant.

Raised flower bed merged with a bench for sitting. Planter benches create a garden oasis and a nice backyard retreat – just to have a few moments of relax among greenery. They can provide great decoration for small terraces or patios or you can define an area with this beautiful set.
