The Glasgow Wood Potting Bench is a handy tool for any gardener which is perfect for organising other tools and potting plants. Designed to be used while standing, you’ll find the potting bench will help to avoid back injuries or straining whilst doing all your gardening tasks.

Possessing all the character from the original reclaimed scaffold boards, you’ll see a whole range of markings, tones, colours and paint marks in each potting bench. As a result very single one of our raised beds will be completely unique. Remember you can customise your bench in colour and finish to suit your space, including bright primary colours. Speak with us to discuss your options.

This product has been designed as part of our funded initiative ‘Designs on Growth’. This in-house design project was funded by the Scottish Government and European Social fund. Find out more about the initiative in our larger projects page or by heading to our news page.


Colour Disclaimer

Colour, grain, knotting, scarring, lettering and the odd paint mark are all natural characteristics of our reclaimed shelves due to the nature of wood. As a result, every item will appear slightly different. If you require matching items, we’d recommend ordering together and specifying what you’d like to ensure as close a match as possible.

Everyone’s screens are different which also affects the finish colours you see. We try to edit our photos to show the samples as life-like as possible, but we cannot guarantee the colour you see accurately portrays what your final purchase may look like.

If there are specific characteristics you’d like your product to have, please provide these details (along with your desired finish type) in the customisation section.
