What is trough planter?

clock-circular-outline Created with Sketch. May 26, 2023

Gardening trends come and go, but the classic appeal of wooden planters never wanes. One particular style that is seeing a resurgence in popularity is the wooden trough planter. The perfect blend of rustic charm and practicality, these planters can be the ideal solution to many gardening scenarios.

What is a Wooden Trough Planter?

Historically, troughs were used to feed livestock. The traditional wooden trough planter mimics this long, narrow, and shallow shape, providing an aesthetic that is at once both rustic and versatile. They can be handmade from various types of wood, with each piece bringing its unique charm to your outdoor space.

Versatility of Wooden Trough Planters

Wooden trough planters are perfect for growing a wide variety of plants, from lush greens to colourful flowers, even long-rooted vegetables and herbs. Their shape allows them to accommodate plants that need more root space, and they can be an attractive and functional addition to a patio, balcony, or any outdoor area.

They can also be used as a strategic design element, creating borders, defining spaces, or becoming the focal point in your garden. When positioned correctly, they can add depth and structure to your outdoor landscape.

Caring for Your Wooden Trough Planter

Wooden trough planters need a bit of love to stay looking their best. They should be lined to protect the wood from moisture and to prolong their lifespan. Regular treatment with a non-toxic, weather-resistant wood sealant or preservative can also help protect the wood from decay and damage from the elements.

Also, make sure your planter has proper drainage. Without it, water can accumulate and lead to root rot, damaging your plants and potentially the planter too.

Making Wooden Trough Planters a Part of Your Garden

Adding wooden trough planters to your garden can instantly elevate its look. The combination of the natural wooden aesthetic with the greenery of your plants creates a calm and serene atmosphere that will make your garden feel like an oasis.

So, whether you're looking to grow a flourishing herb garden on your balcony, create a colourful flower display on your patio, or simply add some structure to your outdoor space, wooden trough planters could be the perfect choice for you. Embrace the rustic charm and versatility they bring, and enjoy the magic they add to your gardening experience.
