Birdhouse Planter

A very unique, beautiful combination of planters, feeder, and birdhouse all in one, the Ivy Tower is a birdhouse planter made from PVC with our signature roof design in durable, oil-finished western red cedar.

This complete unit is called the Ivy Tower. The tower is designed with a decorative trim that will fit over a standard 4″ x 4″ PVC post* (not supplied). We also include the decorative knuckle in the package.

The body is made from a 5″ x 5″ PVC extrusion with our stylish gothic cut-out on both the front and back. On top is a 1 3/8″ entrance hole to the birdhouse. To clean the house, the roof can be removed by unscrewing the four screws with a #2 square drive bit.

The side mount planters are also made from 5″ x 5″ PVC extrusion with an internal base plate that includes drainage holes. The planters are glued and riveted in place.  

A 4″ flower pot will fit in the planter, or for long-lasting summer blooms, plant directly in the planter. Sections of PVC lattice are on the sides to aid in the plants’ growth. Watch your plants cascade over the sides and climb up to the lattice. (See some of our plant and flower suggestions on our blog post!)

The lower cut-out can have multiple uses, including bird seed or a suet block. If you prefer not to fill it with seed, it can be used for an LED candle, another planter, or to house seasonal decorations. You are only limited by your imagination.

Our Birdhouse planter is Built with Buffalo, NY PVC Product

We finish our roofs with outdoor oil and a clear polyurethane (as pictured above). We will also make a custom color roof for a small fee.
