Inspired by Annette's Modern DIY Outdoor Planter post, Apartment Therapy reader Chris shows us all how easy this project was to recreate...Thank you for your post on Annette's modern DIY outdoor planter. I immediately went to Home Depot to replicate it in my barren back patio. Since the patio was not even remotely level, I had to pour a concrete footing for the blocks. The total cost of the project (supplies, soil, plants) was under $200. Here is a photo of the finished product. Thanks again!
