A few months ago Jamie came across an article about creating a garden of ingredients geared toward cocktails. In that article there was a picture of a tall planter with a bar attached to it. In that moment we knew we had to build something similar. I loved the concept but wanted to come up with a cool design that would not only look great but be easy to maintain. The design of this bar has a clean look to it that would be welcomed on any deck or patio and its made out of pressure treated Southern Yellow Pine so you know it will stand up to the test of time outdoors. Another great feature for all you plant killers out there is the self watering feature. Make sure to check out the video to learn how that was done. And, if you are looking for what herbs to plant in your cocktail garden bar here is another good article. Enjoy!
