How To Build A Strawberry Pyramid

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

When strawberry season pops up again, this would be a great project to try. I have never grown strawberries in a wooden pyramid planter before, but I will certainly give it a shot.

The guys over at Bonnie Plants rate this as and easy to moderately difficult project. Cutting the wood, seems a little complicated though. The total cost of the project is estimated at $115, and that includes purchasing the plants too. If you grow your own strawberries and scrounge around the homestead for materials, you can build this for way less.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • strawberry plants
  • 4 x 8 boards
  • 6 x 8 boards
  • deck screws
  • galvanized corner braces
  • soil
  • miter saw or circular saw*
  • hand drill or screwdriver
  • scissors or utility knife
  • square
  • measuring tape
  • shovel

The hardest part of this project involves cutting those boards to the right shapes and sizes. If you cannot do it yourself, you are either going to have to learn slowly or find someone to do it for you. I will get hubby to do this part for me.

The pyramid should ideally be located in a flat area in your garden that receives at least 8 hours of sunshine daily and is well drained. Prepare the area before building the pyramid level by level like a puzzle. Once the pyramid is standing, you can then start to plant your strawberries. Depending your cutting skill level, each pyramid will take you between 2 to 3 hours to complete.
