I’ve mentioned in the past that we moved into our house fairly recently.
Several years ago, the house we were in had an amazing garden, we had chickens and it was our own little paradise.
Our new house is on a small plot of land (5000ish sq feet, which is very small to the places we’ve lived before).
We are trying to figure out how to maximize our growing space.
My three boys eat a ton of food (maybe you can relate?), with berries being a favorite.
I found a local nursery who was selling 100 strawberry plants for a decent price, but where would be put those 100 plants?
Strawberries can take up quite a bit of room. I decided to look into building a strawberry planter or tower. Some way to grow more strawberry plants in a smaller area.
Here are some of the best ones that I found.

If you like the tower idea, you can also make a tower from pvc pipe.
I didn't find any pictures of that, but you could take a couple foot long pvc pipe, drill holes in it, then fill with dirt and plant the strawberries in it.
For the feet of the planter, you could some sort of wooden stand to attach the pvc pipe to.

The pots and soil will be heavy, so assemble at or near a sunny spot where you plan to keep the tower.
That is true, great advice!

What did you end up building?
I ended up building the strawberry tower made with fence boards. I didn’t add the drip line through it, which it definitely needed. A little while later my husband brought home some old wooden containers his nursery was getting rid of. We use those as raised beds. We drilled holes in the sides of these and moved all of our strawberry plants there.
