Concrete Garden Projects: Easy & Inexpensive Containers, Furniture, Water Features & More
Useful, fun, and sure to ignite imaginations.
American Reference Books Annual
If you like making things for your garden, you'll love concrete. Durable, beautiful, and inexpensive, it's also surprisingly simple to work with. Best of all, it weathers elegantly, softening around the edges to become more picturesque with age.
Concrete Garden Projects offers up an inspiring array of creative projects that can be made for next to nothing. Follow the easy, step-by-step instructions to make containers of all sizes, benches and stools, ponds and birdbaths, pavers and stepping stones — and even a barbecue.
At pennies per pound, you can't beat concrete's price. And the molds for the projects (like bowls and baking pans) can often already be found in your house. For elegant, individual, garden décor, don't spend a fortune, just mix and pour.
