Putting Greens in Your Outdoor Planters

Creating a stone planter can be rewarding and easy home project. Stone planters have a great advantage for the avid gardener. There is less stooping or bending. With the planter raised off the ground, the plants can be reached more easily. These great planters create an eye catching focal point for the yard, while providing a practical function of holding moisture. The raised area keeps extra water out from excessive rain out. One can be created with just a few simple steps.

First, the back and front of the yard will need to be explored. Choosing a site that is safe for the family and the planter is vital. The planter will enhance the landscaping of the yard, but the wrong place in a high traffic area could get the contents of the planter trampled or lead to someone falling.

Second, once the site has been decided, an area of the will need to be clearly identified to the household, where the planter will be installed. Spray paint can be used, but chalk is an inexpensive alternative that does not hurt the environment. An average planter is 24 inches deep. A work space will need to be considered as well as the planting area. Give the project plenty of room. Some gardeners choose to create their planters along the side of the house, providing a stone wall border. This creates an elegant look for the yard and protects the planters.

Third, the gardener may be able to get the valuable rocks and stones from the yard. This is wonderful, because rocks will fit nicely with the surround yard. If the yard does not have ample rocks, they can be purchased from local stone yards or home improvement stores.

Fourth, gardeners new to this type of project may want to keep it simple. The rocks can be used as border around the planting area. For the gardeners with higher aspirations, they will want to dig a 4 inch perimeter. Fill 2 inches with gravel. This can be dug with a simple shovel from around the house. A tamper can be used to settle the gravel. The tamper will pack the gravel in place using an up and down firm motion.

For improved leveling of the planter, use par sand which is a mixture of small stone and sand particles. Par sand packs very nicely and levels the planter area easier than just using gravel. Lay out a ½ inch layer of par sand after the gravel, and tamper it into place. Once the area for the planter has been leveled, the building can start.

Fifth, before beginning to stack the rocks, organize them. Place them in groupings by size. They can be separated into three categories: small, medium and large. Begin creating, the stone planter with the large rocks first. The rocks will be overlapped. The stones will not create a straight seam. The rocks must be placed staggered to create stable joints, where the stones meet at the new layers. A typical planter is approximately 18 inches high. Depending on the plant, the gardener may choose to deviate slightly to accommodate the plant. During the building process, the gardener will need to compact the stones together as closely as possible.

Sixth, once the desired height of the planter has been reached, the finishing touches can be applied. The smaller flat rocks add a nice touch to the border of the top of the planter. With the stone planter created, a layer of landscaping cloth can help create the base of the planter.

Seventh, top soil will need to be added to the planter and raked over to create a flat surface to transplant smoothly. At this time, the planter will need generous amounts of water. Some gardeners prefer to mix in plants that will return each year instead replanting all the plants.

The stone planners if made correctly can last generations. They are a project that can be shared with family members of all ages. Children will delight in helping to pick out rocks. They are a simple way to enhance the appearance of the outside of homes with a personal touch. There is nothing more satisfying then a project well done.
