I’ve had these urns for a couple of years and they’re from House Depot initially. They’re light-weight resin and I drilled holes in them for drainage. These urns from Home Depot are very related. So are these urns from Lowes.

I began looking on-line and located this gorgeous set of boxwood topiaries for a great value of $129 for the pair. I learn the critiques which had been actually good and figured they might work for my wants too. They do! Mine are the 24″ x 18″ medium dimension.

They got here packed in a field, so I took them out and fluffed the foliage. I additionally lower off the lip of the plastic container they had been in since I didn’t need water to sit down in them.

They’re set in some form of resin/plaster which ought to maintain them in place simply high-quality. I took out the outdated vegetation that had been in my urns and left about 1/2 the dust in them. Then I merely positioned the brand new topiaries on prime of the flattened dust and coated them each with marble chips we had available.

And right here’s how they give the impression of being on our entrance porch. I really like them a lot! I like that they give the impression of being very pure and they don’t seem to be fully good, however have little tendrils of leaves popping up throughout. Simply fluff the leaves and pull the stems round to cowl any holes.

I coated the underside of the container fully with the marble chips and it finishes them off properly with no dust displaying.

The trunk seems very sensible too and they’re the right accent for the porch and these urns. I’ll be so glad to not should seasonally exchange these vegetation anymore. These fake boxwood ought to final for years. Simply wished to share in case you’ve bought planters are are bored with changing vegetation too! I’m all prepared for spring now!
