Garden Planters as Gifts: When you send a planters you send two gifts: the planter itself, and the moment it arrives. There's the knock at the door or the package on the porch. And the next thing that happens is your special someone is filled with delight as they open a gift they will remember for years to come.

Planter Delivery: At Hurley-Byrd, we do it differently and oversee every part of the process: from the buying of raw materials, to handcrafting the planter, to the day your purchase arrives at the front door. We send freshly crafted planters direct and bypass all the middlemen, which means better planters and a better value. (Don't just take our word for it. All of our customers rate Hurley-Byrd "best value.") We believe in complete satisfaction and lasting value, too, which is why we guarantee a perfect garden planter for you or your recipient , and also that your planter will outlast all others available and will be enjoyed from the moment they arrive and for years to come. It's how Hurley-Byrd is changing how America grows their garden.

   Free Standing Garden Planters   

Thanks to Miriam of Connecticut for inspiring the creation of this wonderful and unique garden planter.
She came to us many years ago explaining how she used our ever popular Deer Feeder as a spring and summer garden planter and requested a "few larger, square boxed feeders to hold more soil?"
Being Hurley-Byrd, that was no issue and the first Free Standing Garden Planter was born.
Miriam then ordered four Garden Planters and told us they were "gifts to all the Mothers in her life."
We thought that was a fantastic idea. Hurley-Byrd introduced the Garden Planter in 2008 at
Mother's Day and is now be a permanent spring offering.
  What's a Free Standing Garden Planter?  
A Free Standing Garden Planter is a unique garden planter.
Perfect for spring annuals like Pansies, Lobelia, Snaps and more.
An excellent container as a kitchen garden planter filled with Rosemary, Oregano and Basil.
The uses are endless. Just imagine this 36" long planter filled to the brim with large Fuchsias blooming heavily and swarming with hummingbirds. This is a beautiful and unique planter. 

How Big is a Free Standing Garden Planter?
We offer two sizes this year. Each is 36" long 7" or 9" wide and both stand 24" high for easy watering.
The Standard has a soil capacity of 12 1/2 quarts, just perfect for small annuals and
the Large with its 24 quart capacity is excellent for larger plants wanting extra rooting area.
Both planters set on a pair of Free Standing Legs so it can be
placed nearly anywhere with a flat and level surface.
Each comes with an earth spiking kit of four timber spikes to anchor the feet when needed. (Not for hard surfaces.)

How well made are they and are they easy to assemble?
Like Hurley-Byrd's wildlife feeders, we craft the Garden Planters with premium quality western red cedar for the main box, legs and feet. Each end of the box where the legs attach are crafted using Appalachian hardwood for extra strength and durability. Like all of our products, planter are crafted using solid screws throughout for years of dependability. Each planter receives our penetrating oil finish to enhance
the wood's characteristics and to help preserve and protect from the elements.
Assembly is very simple. The box itself arrives complete and ready for use. The feet bolt to the legs and the legs are attached to the box using carriage bolts and wingnuts for easy assemble and disassembly for storage. No tools required - a 2013 design upgrade.

Does it drain properly and is it easy to maintain?
Yes on both questions. We added plenty of drainage holes throughout the bottom board plus the base simply lays in the bottom of the box. This in itself allows a little drainage but more importantly, allows for super easy emptying and cleaning at season's end. Pull the base board out, scrub the box clean and allow to dry. If desired, apply a fresh coat of penetrating oil stain to retain its color or allow the whole planter to age into its beautiful silver gray. To store for the winter, disassemble the legs from the box, detach the feet and everything stores away in the box. Nice, simple and clean. It just doesn't get any better!
