Just like weatherproofing the planter, it is not always necessary, unless the bottom of the planter has quite a large gap (like mine), which then you will need a bottom liner to prevent soil to fall out of the planter. I prefer to line mine for the same reason I stain the planter – durability and longevity.
Tips in doing the project:
– Use thick plastic sheeting (6 mm is the thickest I could find).
– If staple gun, and if possible, the battery operated one. Andy got me Milwaukee battery powered one. Love it!!
– Cut the plastic in 2 pieces. One for the bottom and one long sheet for the side.
– Add extra 3-4 inches to the actual measurement so you can overlap the plastic.
– Fold the top side of the plastic to double the thickness where you will staple it to the wood. I prefer folding it inward for a neater finish.
– Don’t forget to puncture holes at the bottom liner. Using a screwdriver works 🙂
