A video about simple box planters for your patio. All the materials were made from scrap lumber and plywood.
A standard 8 feet long by 2 feet wide planter can be constructed over a weekend.
For this project, a 2’ x 8’ planter was made for the back wall of our home and an “L” shape planter was made to edge the corner of the adjoining patio. The “L” shape consisted of two 2′ x 4′ planters laid out in an “L” shape. The planters are open at the bottom but covered with landscape fabric and lined with recycled cardboard. A soil mix of consisted of potting soil and mushroom manure was mixed together in each planter.
The inglorious outhouse needed a heater. There was complaints from “management” that it was torture to run outside on cold nights. So, I hit the internet and did some research. Watch a video about a gentleman that heated his room with a flower-pot heater. Sounded like a good idea and thought I would give it a go.
Found a few Terra Cotta clay pots that were not being used. I choose to use a 6″ and 3″ in diameter pot.
