the planter is cast in place concrete, 4" thick. The bottom is open to the ground so really no need to water proof

Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to Clash Course: Design Comes Outside to Play
Don't be afraid to arrange objects artfully outdoors. These pebble-look pillows gathered at one end of the bench create a textural sculpture that keeps the scene playful.
