Garden Like a Pro – DIY Outdoor Planters

Spring is in full bloom, and it’s finally time to fill our outdoor planters and pots with summery flowers.

In this short video, Make It Better reader and avid gardener Mary Shearson shows us how to plan and create beautiful planters that rival the professionals.

Take a look then go flex your own green thumb. Planting these pots is a fun, satisfying project with rewarding results that last all summer.
