I love the planters next to the bench idea! How did you waterproof them?

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.

I like that this space has the feeling of an extension to the indoor living space. Like the large area for seating / lounging. Though the stain and color look a little cheap
