How to Make Your Own Strawberry Tower

If you have been reading studio ‘g’ for a while, you might remember one of my first ever posts.  It was about a strawberry tower that I was crushing on (and nearly two years later, I still am).  That tower seemed like it would forever be out of my reach because the 6 ft version is over $600 (including shipping).  But patience is a virtue…because, I have now found the very same (though in treated wood rather than cedar) tower for less than half the price here…..and also I have found instructions for making your own here.… I am hoping that some handy man (husband, dad, grandpa?) in my life will be inclined to build me one of these for Mother’s day (or maybe my birthday?) –  my strawberries need to be moved to the protective confines of my vegetable garden.  I am simply tired of sharing my beautiful fruit with Mr. Woodchuck and Madam deer.

  1. I think if I was going to make it, I would make the base smaller. It seems to me that the design you linked to will require a lot more potting soil than the strawberries really need, which can get expensive.

  2. beautiful! It would be gorgeous with wave petunias, too.
    Would you water it with a sprinkler on top? Or snake some soaker hose through it before the dirt, and leave a connector?
    I can picture it with a spinning owl or hawk on top to keep birds away. Chipmunks eat berries too. But they are cuter. I leave the wild strawberries for them.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing a true expression of someone in something that they create.  Be it art, clothes, architecture, or a garden, the realization of an individual vision is what makes being a designer fun.   So even though you might look at this garden and not see the designer beauty, I assure…

I love today’s daily garden for it’s excellent layout, gaining the most usability and style from the smallest space by the use of the perfect furniture, making features of the walls,  and by seamlessly  integrating a variety of materials.  Designed by Philp Nixon. You May Also Like
