  • Easy Potting on Your Patio

I do a lot of planting in pots, but I don’t have a potting bench.

To create a comfortable gardening spot, I laid an old shower curtain liner across my existing patio table. I can garden at table height without ruining my furniture, and the gardening mess can be easily rinsed off afterward.
