Complete your open fire area and get back to nature with a rock planter. It takes a bit of patience to create, but the result is rather fabulous!
Gather your supplies
• Power drill
• Large masonry drill bit
• Medium-sized rock
• Native plant in plastic pot
You'll also need
Marker; lump hammer; chisel; safety gear; bolster (optional)
Place rock on a flat surface. If base of rock isn’t level, use a hammer and bolster to chip at it until it sits flat. Put plastic pot on top of rock and trace around base.
Drill several holes into marked area, then use hammer and chisel to knock out stone. Continue this way until you have chipped out enough stone to accommodate pot and root ball of plant. Test fit with your pot plant to make sure it will fit in comfortably.
Drill at least 1 drainage hole into side of planter, then pop in your plant.
