1. Gardener Teak Potting Station

  • Size: 76.8” h x 39.4” w x 21.25” d
  • Materials: Teak wood

Here, a practical storage solution for the green thumb. This one doubles as a multi-use potter, including a wide work surface, large drawer and two shelves to keep your counter space clear. Our favorite part, however, is that it’s made from durable teak wood and treated with a specially coated finish, which gives the wood a silvery, aged patina and prevents wear and tear from sun, heat or rain.
