Forget the heavy price tags on concrete planters. You can make these incredibly easy and fast in 4 simple steps!
Here is what you need:
- Landscape block adhesive
- 4 pavers for sides (size can vary to create a rectangle or square)
- Paver(s) for bottoms (size may vary based on size of sides)
Now let me show you how it’s done:
Step 1. Put pavers together without adhesive to make sure the size and shape are what you want.
Step 2. Use landscape block adhesive to attach the pavers together. Run a thin bead of adhesive along the edges, press pavers together, then let sit for 24 hours. Clamps shouldn’t be needed.
3. Glue the bottom piece on using the same method as for the sides. However, leave a few gaps between the adhesive beads so excess water can drain.
4. Wait until glue dries completely, then add your favorite plants and enjoy!
There are so many ways to design and paint these planters. Set 3 or 4 near your porch with your house number painted on each one, something like this I found on pinterest.
Doesn’t the tiles look pretty!
