For gardeners and backyard do-it-yourselfers, concrete is a revelation. It's durable, weatherproof, impossible to steal,
and it provides much-needed insulation for outdoor plants. Concrete weathers beautifully, softening around the edges,
developing moss, and becoming more picturesque with age.
Concrete Garden Projects takes advantage of concrete's numerous assets, showcasing an inspiring array of creative
options. The step-by-step instructions for dozens of easy, do-it-yourself décor ideas include containers of all shapes
and sizes, elegant benches and stools, miniature ponds and birdbaths, stepping stones, a barbecue, and a fire pit. The
authors use a variety of molds easily found or made, household items like bowls and baking pans, and simple wooden
frames and boxes. At pennies per pound, and so simple to use—just mix with water and pour—concrete is the key to
hand-crafted backyard décor.
