Daily Garden: Cinderblock Planters

Do you remember a post here I that make a couple months ago about using stacked cinder blocks to make a vertical planter?….you can re-visit it here.

I remember thinking as I wrote, how easy it would be to make a more refined version (in fact I think I said that in the post) — well someone else had the same idea…and made this ultra sleek (but super cheap)  garden…. so great right?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
