Concrete Garden Projects by Camilla Arvidsson and Malin Nilsson
This book came out in 2011, and the subtitle is Easy & Inexpensive Containers, Furniture, Water Features & More.
In this book, Camilla and Malin help us learn how to create with concrete - a perfect medium for gardeners. Durable and weatherproof, concrete provides insulation for outdoor plants. Better yet, concrete weathers so beautifully; the edges soften, the color mellows, and it can be enhanced with lichen and moss.
Concrete Garden Projects features excellent step-by-step instructions for many different containers as well as elegant seating, miniature ponds and birdbaths, stepping stones, and even a fire pit.
Camilla and Malin love to use molds for their projects, and happily, most of their go-to molds are easily found or made from household items like kitchen bowls or pans and simple wooden frames or boxes.
And in terms of cost, concrete is so affordable, just pennies per pound, and so simple to use — just add water and then pour the concrete into the mold.
This book is 132 pages of stylish vessels and projects made with budget-friendly concrete.
You can get a copy of Concrete Garden Projects by Camilla Arvidsson and Malin Nilsson and support the show using the Amazon Link in today's Show Notes for around $3
