I wrote in my last post about the plant benches I was working on for the garden shed and this weekend I was able to finish installing the coated wire shelf tops. Now I can add plants in to overwinter, hardwood cuttings for rooting over the winter, or maybe even start seeds in the early spring.
Each shelf is covered with the wire mesh you see in the above picture. The plants in the picture below are resting on the 8 foot long and 30 inch wide main shelf.
And here is the 4 foot long and 30 inch wide top shelf. I wanted to leave some head room for plants which is why I didn't run the top shelf the full length of the bench. All the lumber is re-used from other projects.
Total Shelf space:
- Top Shelf: 10 sq. ft.(roughly)
- Middle Shelf: 20 sq. ft. (roughly)
- Under Shelf area: 20 sq. ft. (roughly)
- Total: 50 sq. ft. (roughly)
