Home and garden techniques

These are interesting decisions for home and garden.

If you don’t worry to become a little bit dirty, you can work on your own these pots, or decorate your garden or yard. You need two different size buckets of latex or other similar thing, but after tat you’ll have to destroy the bigger one to take out the new pot. These home and garden  tricks will help you to lend variety to your yard. First, mix the needed quantity of concrete, coat the walls of the buckets with shuttering oil, which will enable the concrete to stick on the walls of the vessels. Level up the top part of the buckets, centre well the two parts and fill in the concrete. To get a thick cast, carefully tap the external bucket with a wooden stick or rubber hammer. After you’ve coped with your task, leave the cast pot for at least one week. After this time, cut carefully the external bucket and pull out the inner one. You have to drive a hole sideways near the bottom, because the superfluous water has to run out. You can already use these home-made pots, but if you want, you can improve their appearance. The outside decoration you can do at your choice, when you settle down all your creative inspiration to work. You can just paint on the pot with acrylic paint some ornaments and figures at your choice. You can make a mosaic of broken terracotta tile pieces, but you can also stick all over the pot with river stones. Collect them near the river, as you choose interesting by form and color stones. Do the sticking with elastic (flexible) tile glue, and be careful, don’t stain the stones from the front part. After drying at least 48 hours, clean well the dirty stones and polish with stone lacquer, which you can buy in a building store. Choose a transparent one with UV protection, because like this you’ll underline the natural beauty of the stones and the lacquer won’t crackle and take off from the sunbeams. Put about 5 cm draining of small stones on the bottom and add soil, suitable for the flowers, you‘ll grow in this pot. If you sow only one plant, you can arrange tiny stones or mosaic on the top of the soil, like this your pot will look very well and at the same time, when you water the plant, the water will pass freely into the soil.
