Planter by Alex

Our friend Alex makes these fantastic concrete planters, and they come in all shapes and sizes - round, square, rectangle, etc. He was motivated to make his own after not being able to find exactly what he wanted at local garden shops, especially for a reasonable price. He makes his molds out of things like commercial grade large mixing bowls. Anyway, they are super nice. We also have a round one for our rain chain and another for a succulent planter.

Alex and his partner are moving out to the Agave development, which sucks because it's nice to have people to hang out with in the hood. But as a parting gift (they aren't going that far, really), they adopted this planter out to us. I guess it wouldn't quite work with their new thing, but it works perfect on our patio.

It's heavy as a mofo. Not going anywhere anytime soon.

Cool! I wish Alex would move by me. No chance he'd consider posting instructions?
