How do you protect the concrete from the horsetail plant? - I love the look of horsetail but a nursery advised against it because it can crack cement.

We've never had a problem with the horsetail reed cracking concrete. The horsetail reed does spread so we make sure it's in a self contained planter. We built these concrete planter boxes as part of the hardscape for that reason.

They are poured in place concrete. Thanks for your question!

They look like concrete slabs that where placed together to form the planter. Is that correct?

That is what it is. It can be invasive depending on where you live/climate...great looking, the reed itself is actually hollow.

Giant horsetail (Equisetum giganteum) be sure to keep it in contained beds or containers, It spreads vigorously in warmer climates. Do not let them go to seed.

Love the Horsetails - I'm curious how you were able to get your horsetails to stand so straight. Mine are always flopping over...any advice?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Landscapes Make a Privacy Statement
Horsetail, or Equisetum hyemale, is one poorly behaved plant, known to take over entire landscapes. That is, unless you plant it in a place where its roots are contained. That's what you see here, and it's a nifty way to both screen out the world and bring green into view. The raised concrete planters are exactly what's needed to corral the densely planted stands of horsetail.
