In addition, there’s a removable sink to help keep your work surface clean and tidy. Check out this tutorial on how to put together the Bering Channel potting bench.

YAHEETECH Outdoor Garden Potting Bench – Best Design

YAHEETECH Outdoor Garden Potting Bench review

The YAHEETECH potting bench is perfect for all your gardening needs. We like how it features a super usable but aesthetically pleasing design, which adds to the overall look of your greenhouse.

It’s made of fir, so durability is guaranteed. The upper shelf maxes at at 220 lbs whereas the lower shelf can hold approximately 176 lbs – that’s impressive for a greenhouse bench designed for potting. Not only is the carrying capacity impressive but so is the available storage. The YAHEETECH potting bench comes standard with hooks, slatted shelves, a drawer, and a cabinet in addition to all that counter space.

The dimensions of this compact-sized potting table are 49 x 44 x 18 inches.

  • Attractive aesthetic design
  • Unbelievable carrying capacity

Cons

GRIDMANN Work Table – Most Heavy Duty

GRIDMANN Work Table review greenhouse

This work table from GRIDMANN is definitely designed for industrial kitchens. That being said, it’s easy to clean, can hold anything you can imagine, and is the perfect size for a smaller greenhouse. You can use the GRIDMANN work table to store your gardening tools and display your plants without any concerns over capsizing.

Do note that this work table is fairly heavy itself as a result of the stainless steel design. At 41l bs it’s probably best to have a helper install this greenhouse table with you.

The dimensions of this table are 36 x 24 x 4 inches and while there is no listed carrying capacity, one has to assume that it’s north of 200l bs.

Pros

  • Weather-resistant
  • Powder-coated
  • Two wheels and trolley handle for easy portability
  • Reasonably priced

Cons

  • The instructions are difficult to follow

Convenience Concepts Potting Bench review

One of the great things about the Convenience Concepts Potting Bench is its simplistic design. It’s perfect for no-fuss potting and gardening.

This table offers the perfect amount of workspace and storage in one area without making you feel cramped. At the same time, it won’t take up much space in your greenhouse because it folds up like a tv dinner tray.

We like that it’s easy to assemble but that once put together, it feels solid and sturdy. The top bench is spacious enough, while the lower shelf acts as a handy storage area.

The dimensions of this Convenience Concepts Potting Bench are 39.5 x 20 x 34.25 inches. There is no listed carrying capacity for this potting bench but reviews of the product indicate that it can hold over 50lbs on both shelves.

Pros

  • Rustic design
  • Sturdy build
  • No-fuss assembly
  • Moderately priced

Cons

  • Folding could be easier
