Make Your Own Planting Board

This DIY planting board is not really going to make your backyard look better per se, but it will help you to create perfect rows in your garden which will make the yard look better. You need a few old corks, a board and some screws. The planting board is so easy to make and you probably have all of the supplies that you need already. Once it’s finished, you just pick it up and press it into the ground with the corks facing into the dirt. It will help you to create perfect rows for your veggie and flower gardens every time.

Step 1: Let's Do It !

Oh well, it's a simple concept and I'm pretty sure I got it right. The picture I had showed seeds much closer together, but since my raised beds are only 4' wide, the 2' board will work well for us.They didn't actually have a detailed guide on making it, but it seemed fairly straightforward, so I took a 2' wide piece of plywood and we cut it
2' x 2', then I measured it into 2" grids. We used 3/4" wood screws at the 2" marks, and then screwed the wine corks that were cut into 1" length onto each screw. I just used a common box cutter to cut the corks into the correct length. I also cut 1/2" corks for another board that I'm going to make soon.

Step 2: NeXt Step.

I went into the house for the corks and by the time I got back out, Colleen had almost finished up putting in the screws! She works fast!I added a touch of liquid nail at the base of each screw just as an added guarantee that the corks would stay put.

Step 3: Finaly Product.

Now I just need to add a couple of drawer pulls on the back side to use as I press the board into the ground to create the 1" indention into the soil for my seeds. I'll be using this on the 15th to plant the beans and squash plants!

Thanks for views !

<p>Good idea, how about screwwing a shoe to them and &quot;walking&quot; your holes in! Voted</p>
<p>Very nice reuse!<br>Only things I could wish for would be something harder than corks (they only work for really soft ground) and adjustible depth, maybe even adjustible width between holes (various seeds need different depths and space between them). So if you can think of a more fexlible model which is build as easy as this one I will marry you. Well not really, but you get the idea.</p>
<p>Это не мои идеи ... нашел в Российском сегменте Интернета</p>
<p>Yes, this is great idea and most people on world have this same idea.<br>But I doing this from recovery things ( vine corks, plywood etc.)<br><br>Thanks for coment from Russia :)</p>

I love it! If I didn't start so many plants indoors, I would definitely make one. Maybe in the Fall for my cool weather crops?!?
<p>Awesome idea!!!!</p>
