This is a cool way to space plants as part of a new garden at home. Plants need between 3 to 12 inches of spacing, depending on the size of the plant. So, here is a homemade stick that will allow people to stick it in the garden and mark the places where the plants should be. Get the following: 2 3/4 X 48″ round dowel rods, 1 2X2 by 8′ or 2×4 by 8, a drill, a ¾ drill bit, a saw, measuring tape, and a marker.
Materials and Tools:
2 3/4 X 48″ round dowel rod
1 2X2 by 8′ or 2×4 by 8
drill press or drill
3/4 drill bit
First, grab the 2×2 and mark it on one side every 3 inches. Then, flip it over and mark it every 12 inches. Grab the dowel, mark it every foot, and then cut it in 2’ sections. Afterwards, drill 1″ deep in the mark on the 2×2 using the 3/4″ drill bit. Flip it over and drill every 12″, but only drill 1/2″ down. There is no need to use glue; use friction but hammering in every piece of the dowel.
Finished with the new spacing stick, use it by sampling press it deep into the ground and lift it straight up to make spaced holes and rows. Like that, places are made to plant seeds in the ground and it will flourish with the spaces in between.
