These pieces believe it or not are made almost completely from recycled pallets. The only part created from new wood is the bench seat (required stronger material to support the weight of people sitting) and the supports for the table and benches. The planter boxes can hold a 10" flower pot and include colored stone.
Every time I make something for a customer my wife always wants it. I had made a very basic table from pallets for a customer and she wanted one, but of course I decided to go a step further and create something more sophisticated. The trick was finding the right type of plant that would not attract bugs with flowering displays and also work in a very shady area underneath my deck. As people's placement of these can very greatly I usually build the structure and allow them to buy their own style of plants, rocks and cushions.
