Stadium Seating for the Blueberries a Repurpose Project

What seems like so long ago was the purchase of 25 blueberry plants.  They've been watered and talked to in their pots since.  That was until we finally got the multi layer (stadium seating) arrangement done.

Again we used the infamous free skids.  I tacked on some weed blocker on the back to help keep the dirt behind the boards.  It worked like a charm.  We have three levels of berry plants.  This also serves as a way to keep the dirt from eroding off the side of the container.

One set of skids is actually two sided, so I'm thinking eventually I'll add some dirt in between and plant strawberry plants in the spaces between wood slats.  Do you think it would work?

We're all looking forward to the first harvest!


  1. Lookin good!! I can't see why it wouldn't work Strawberry plants seem to have a taproot and not much more so they don't spread out too much under ground.

    Sadly we can't seem to grow Blueberries here.

  2. Izzy,

    I love this idea with planting your blackberry plants. The strawberry plants in between should work pretty good. I would also cover around the base of the strawberry plants with some straw. This will make a perfect home for them. As long as it's easy enough for you to harvest the berries.

  3. Strawberries might work if you can manage to keep the soil moist enough. I imagine the drying effect of raised soil along with cross breezes and sun might be tough to overcome.


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
