Converting wood logs into natural planters is a simple and beautiful way to enhance your backyard patio.
Cut the logs to the desired size. Be sure to cut the sections long enough to allow room to drill a 4-inch section for space to place plants.
Drill a hole into each log about 4 inches wide and 4 inches deep to create a pocket for an annual plant.
Optional: Place landscape fabric in the hole to create a barrier between the wood and the soil. This will help prevent decomposition of the wood.
Place an annual plant in the hole and fill the remaining space with additional soil as needed.
Display your DIY natural planter in your outdoor space and enjoy!
