If you’re embracing the call of spring gardening, but your knees aren’t, these raised planters are just the ticket for making gardening more comfortable.

Back and knee pain and mobility issues can make it a real chore to get down on the ground to garden. However, if you have a nice, sturdy raised planter, you can easily work on your herbs or flowers while standing, or even sitting on a stool.

Raised table-style planters also look incredibly charming on a patio or porch. Plus, you can easily store them for winter. Below are six of our favorite table-style planters. At this writing, all were still available, but they’re sure to go fast!
