The orange colored Birdhouse Planter to the left was awarded one of three Best Of Show ribbons in the Birdhouse Project auction at the March 2002 Minneapolis Home and Garden Show.
Birdhouse Planter dimensions are roughly 36" tall by 22" wide at the planter box. The planter box is designed to accommodate 4" pots. The bottom of the planter box is mostly open for water drainage - very similar to the planter boxes on the Birdhouse Benches (see photo on the Birdhouse Bench page).
The Birdhouse Planter ($250 + shipping) is just that - a combination of a planter box with a fully functional birdhouse. It is primarily designed for Swallows or smaller bird species - entry hole size 1-3/8" to 1-1/8". A slightly larger Birdhouse Planter can be made for Bluebirds with a 1-9/16" entry hole opening and larger interior nesting compartment.
