Privacy Planter

DIY Tall Privacy Planter - Rogue Engineer 3

DIY Tall Privacy Planter - Rogue Engineer 2

We recently built a deck for my brother and sister-in-law, and now that the deck was up it was time to get started on some outdoor furniture. First priority on the list was to give them some privacy. Since they live in a neighborhood, they wanted to be able to enjoy relaxing on heir new deck without any peeping neighbors! We designed this tall planter to not only give them privacy but also add a little greenery to the deck. We choose plants that not only grew tall but also added some mosquito repellant properties since they are expecting!!

What we planted: Lemon Grass  |  Lavender  |  Basil  |  Lemon Balm  |  Citronella

Finishing

We finished this planter with Restore Solid Deck stain in Driftwood

I then cut up a trash bag and stapled it to the sides so the water would drain only from the bottom and not run down the sides of the planter.

Then I added in some weed barrier to allow for drainage yet retain the soil.

Finally we filled it with about 5 cubic feet of soil and some plants to help keep away those pesky bugs.

    Since there’s a lot of unused space in the bottom half+ it would be cool if there was an easy way to build in a door or something so you could store stuff inside. It might make it more complex, but figured I’d throw it out there. Building this project this weekend…great plans and site!
