Why create a small lawn on top of a garden table? Just because. The idea popped into my head, so I had to make it happen. I’m not sure how long it will last, but I’m into it for now…
This is green living – a sod topped garden table.
I had my coffee out here with my 5 year old daughter the other morning – this table was the topic of the hour – she's intrigued. We agreed that we'd like to see a robin land on it.
Coasters not needed here.
You'll need a metal table with openings in the top for drainage and a strip of sod (a 4 foot piece is a about $4.00 from Home Depot). Put sod on ground with soil side facing up and place table upside down on top of sod.
Using a sharp knife (my husband used a drywall saw), follow edge of table and cut out sod to fit the top.
To keep the soil intact while maintaining proper drainage, I put down a layer of burlap underneath the sod.
Give it a good watering and continue to keep it moist with regular waterings.
I'll let you know how long it lasts.
My kids want the job of watering the table.
