How to Make a Concrete Edge Planter
Budget-savvy concrete edgers turn into customized stylish planters in a matter of minutes.
Spruce up a tired landscape with concrete planters that can be constructed in three quick steps. Almost any type of concrete edging will work, so find one that suits your style. A columnar design forms corners without an obvious seam. Understated and stylish, these planters are sure to please.
What you'll need:
- Concrete edgers
- Concrete block adhesive
- Concrete steps
Conduct a dry run to make sure the pieces fit. Assemble the planter without gluing to test your final design -- be creative! We went with a square design, but the choice is yours. Remember: Assembly is upside down, so the concrete steps will be placed on top to dry before turning over the planter
Apply concrete block adhesive to both ends of each edger piece, then assemble. Before the adhesive dries, check that all corners are at a sharp right angle if you want a square or rectangular planter.
Apply adhesive along the bottom of the edgers, then adhere the concrete steps. Let the adhesive cure for 24 hours before turning the planter over.
Fill with topsoil, then plant your favorite flowers.
