A removable lid can be added on the tabletop over the drawers. This allows you to scoop soil up from or dump soil into the drawer below in one movement. You can add a removable lid to the left, right, or both drawers. The lid can be placed either with the lift to open/close either toward the front or back of the potting bench. The lid is reversible.
