If you're like me and have never grown strawberries at home, chances are you also weren't aware that strawberries grow best in a pyramid. This is because a pyramid shaped planter allows for optimal water drainage, along with allowing extra room for the plants to grow properly. If you're looking for instructions, or build plans to create your very own strawberry pyramid planter so you can enjoy the delicious berries at home all summer long, you've come to the right spot. We've found a bunch of different wooden pyramid planters that you can either build yourself with some detailed plans, or purchase pre-made if you aren't very handy.
Depending on how you'd like to get your pyramid planter, you can either find some plans for free online, such as this one by the website RemoveandReplace. They provide instructions on how to build a 11-tier strawberry pyramid planter, which cost them around 200 bucks in total to build. They even built the wooden pyramid on caster wheels so you can easily move it around when completed.
This other set of build plans to create a DIY wooden strawberry pyramid planter goes for just under 4 bucks on Etsy, and is a bit smaller at just 6 tiers, but stands a bit wider, and stands 35 inches in height. The build plans are sold by Etsy store WoodGears.
If you're not that handy and would like to just buy a pre-made pyramid planter, you can do that to. Etsy store HamersCrafts sells a few different sizes of pyramid planters ranging from just 3 tiers to 7 tiers. They range in price from 75 bucks up to 200 bucks for their largest pyramid.
Another good free instructions for creating a strawberry pyramid is over at FineGardening, where they offer plans to create a large 10 tier pyramid that can hold up to 60 strawberry plants. It measures 6 feet tall when completed, and contains over 60 feet of growing space.
You can also find a few different pyramid planter plans available on Amazon. The vertical planters range in size from a taller 6-tier planter that measures 6 feet tall, to shorter one that contains just 3 tiers of strawberry plants. You can find them on Amazon here.
However you go about acquiring your strawberry pyramid planter, whether you build it yourself, or just buy a pre-made pyramid, you can take some inspiration from a few more examples that we found below.
