This whiskey barrel planter gives you almost 3x the surface area of our ground level and elevated planters so you can plant more things inside the barrel. Just like our refinished barrels and refinished planters, we clean them up, paint the rings, and add an exterior finish so they will look great for years to come. The barrel is bolted to some partial staves to keep it off the ground to help with drainage and make it last even longer. If having this item shipped, the only assembly you’ll need to do is attach the staves to the barrel. You’ll only need a hammer and a 1/2 inch socket wrench or some pliers to fasten everything together.
