To achieve this concrete planter, you need:
A plywood board of 50 x 33 x 1.8 cm
A formwork board about 15 cm wide and 1.8 m long
4 packs of 500g yogurt
A milk carton
Cut the wood
Build the mold
Assemble all parts of this formwork with screws.
Simply use olive oil as grease to grease the m
Prepare the mixture
Concrete bags while the loans are in any DIY store. They are very useful for doing small jobs like this seeder.
Prepare the mixture in the following proportion 3 parts of sand, 1 part of cement and 1/2 part of water
For mixing, the concrete should be neither too hard nor too soft. . The shape of the block then remains in the concrete instead, it is a sign that the viscosity is good.
Wedge so that the containers do not move
How to make a cement planter
We can consider any type of packaging for the project. I found that 500 g of yogurt had almost the same shape as the herbal pots that are in the trade.
The adjusting screw of the wedge at the edges is a good way to keep the pots from sinking into the concrete.
Echo the cement into the mold carefully tap in moderation, which will make the concrete finish look better!
Let dry 24 Hs and then unmold
As you can see, when removing the mold the garden is very good. Then we remove the wedges and the containers of yogurt.
Make holes for drainage
Be very careful when making the holes try to make them with a drill to avoid blows.
We put earth and plant!
For my part, I have chosen to plant herbs that are very useful for cooking. My flower box outside remains immune.
You could also consider the same tray and make a smaller version to put the Mini cactus for example. It all depends on what you put in your garden.
Do not forget to put a small blue inch down the page if Rain Garden !.
The finished planter
If you want to be more smooth and neat, prepare water with cement only (liquid) and apply to the planter with a sponge and will be smooth.
