I have a bunch of plants and not enough room on my deck for all of them, so I decided to make a set of vertical cinder block planters, or planter sculpture.
Materials For Making DIY Cinder Block Planters
– Cinder Blocks – Work gloves – Landscape fabric- woven – Scissors – Tin Snips – Mesh wire
Step 1. Design The Layout
First, set up your cinder blocks in the arrangement you want your final planter layout to be- make sure to take a photo of your layout!
Step 2. Clean The Cinder Blocks
The blocks need to be washed. You can spray off most of the dust with a hose, but you will need to spot wash, using the nylon scrub brush where you see dirt.
Step 3. Prime The Cinder Block Planters
For priming, make sure the blocks are completely dry otherwise, the paint will peel off from the moisture leftover in the blocks.
