Plant benches made 2018; with central header and bed card label track. Benches lined with polythene, folded over sides and capped to prevent water coming into contact with internal timber.
The benches have a sloping base for drainage and there are 3 outlets. The base layer is topped with Lytag. A layer of ground cover fabric prevents the top layer of 50 – 75mm of sand from mixing with the lytag layer. We topped them with microporous polythene.
These benches worked well for us. The layer of sand reduced frost damage to roots in the winter, while wicking excess moisture out of the pots. In the summer, the sand holds some moisture which will move into dry pots, and also still wicks excess moisture out of small plants in wet composts. In drought summers, the drainage can be blocked to leave plants with a reservoir of water.
The benches have been stood on levelled quarters of 450 mm square slabs. This helps keep even water distribution and almost eliminates the rot that occurs when bench legs sink into soft ground.
Sloping base filled with lytag, topped with coarse sand and microporous polythene to finish. Benches can be joined together to regulate water level.
