Tall Square Tapered Planters - Hello, I have been looking for (2) similar planters, maybe a little shorter. I don't want cheap plastic ones. Can anyone tell me where I can find them?

Has there been any shifting or problems since you installed?
I'm trying to get this look w/ contractors in NJ area but they keep advising me not to use these pavers due to shifting & try to steer me to other traditional pavers.
Thanks for the great visual inspiration! It's keeping me from compromising my modern aesthetics & regretting later. Love this!

sorry to just now be getting back with you. there has not been any shifting because of the concrete that shored them up.

the planters were from a random import place on hempstead highway in Houston. They are a glazed ceramic.

sorry for the long delay in responding. I've got dwarfed mondo grass & black mulch until the mondo grass fills in. I guess you could use recycled tire mulch in the meantime.

it's a mesh typically used for gates. I believe you can get it at Home Depot or Lowes. It was temporary until the Japanese Yews grew.

This is an absolutely gorgeous patio area, very modern and sofisticated looking. My question is, (is a concrete paver stone the same as a concrete sidewalk block, as a sidewalk block is 30" long by 24" wide?

thanks. sorry for the late response. It's basically a poured concrete 2'x2' paver. It's different from a sidewalk block.

Ronique Gibson
Determine what your uses for your patio at night are. If you are going to entertain around a summer kitchen, you will need overall ambient light in food preparation area, but also mood lighting such as lanterns, tiki torches, wall sconces and table lanterns around lounging areas.

To highlight planted areas, landscape lighting and wall washers can be used.

For a decorative touch, also consider string lights for trees, stringing lights on the underside of umbrellas, and good 'ol candle light to bring a more intimate environment to your porch.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to 12 Ways to Warm Up Your Patio
If a fireplace is too large an investment, or your patio simply does not have space, light each seating area separately with small, portable candles. You’ll benefit from similar warm lighting without shelling out big bucks.
Add CandlelightTime: 5 minutes to dig out that long lighter and get things lit.Starting budget: Try these Black Hurricane Lanterns at $10 each.Oversize hurricanes glow with warm light, instantly adding a romantic ambience.See more outdoor lanterns
