This is an easy DIY project. We start with the purchase of a plastic planter sleeve. I purchased this rectangular one at home depot for a few bucks. Next step to cut the pressure treated 4x4 legs to the height we want for our planter. Then build a frame that fits the dimensions of the plastic sleeve. We used a couple 2x4s to support the sleeve in place. We decided to use hardiebacker cement board rather than plywood because of it weather resistant qualities. Then using some contractors cement we applied each faux stone into place.
Please watch the short video posted above which details each step of the build process. The video also illustrates how each of the 4x4 legs gets notched and the frame support for the planter sleeve.
