Step Two Garden Planter
Step2 makes fantastic products for kids - you know the playhouses, slides, climbers water tables, etc? Well, they have branched into garden products now. When they reached out to do a collaboration, I was so excited and began planning my vision to use it to use it as a place to plant the seeds I brought from Washington State to California. It arrived super-fast and very well packaged. I will say this was super easy to put together. It came a with step-by-step manual which simplified the process and literally took minutes to put together. Not only is this planter so pretty to look at it, but it’s multi-functional.
After putting it together and giving myself a few days to look at it, I thought of the brilliant idea to use it as an ice bucket when entertaining. & as you can see it's absolutely perfect! So if you are not a gardener, you definitely need this too! So before planting my seeds and making it a garden planter, we decided to try it out to use poolside here in California. We love the fact that the three buckets are removable and easy to carry no matter what you have that in them. The ice stayed cold for hours, making it a perfect solution for an afternoon cooler. I decided not to drill holes in the bottom for now because I think it could be used indoor and outdoor if I decided to do so. But I’m sure you could do that very easily.
Now to share my favorite part, using this as a planter box for drainage, I set a couple, empty nursery containers in the bottom and turned them upside down. You could use plastic bottles, Styrofoam, or something else to repurpose so that as your seeds or plants grow, they are not saturated or waterlogged.
