If you are talking about salt for snow removal, no worries. I don't get that stuff here.  Grin

I finally finished the baby brother to the large planter.
i had the planter done about 3 months ago but the finials floated around the shop (getting pushed to the back burner) for way too long.
The plant in the center was in the large planter (center in first photo) as you can tell, it got too big.
The small planter is constructed the same as the large one, the height is the same only length and width are different. Each was built for it's specific spot.
Thanks again for looking

Good Morning Ed,

Do you line the planters with anything before putting the dirt (planting soil) in? Do you fill the planter with planting soil or is there a "false bottom" part way down?

Great looking planters by the way!

Dave
