My stump planters have seriously become one of the things I am most proud of in our home. These were not exactly easy to make with palm tree stumps, because as we found out, palm trees are extremely dense.
Lan first used his reciprocating saw to cut out how large the hole is going to be. Then he used an Auger bit on his drill and drilled down as far as he could. He then took his reciprocating saw and continued to slowly cut away pieces until it was widened to his guide cut. When he was all done, he took his drill and drilled down once more. Since the stump can’t drain, we filled this hole with rocks so that excess water can collect there, away from roots.
We ended up planting Jalapeno, Sweet Basil, and Rosemary. I love these planters.. and the icing on the cake, is that it is free!
I kept telling Lan that he should make more and we could sell then for a really good price. He looked at me like I was crazy and responded “go for it babe, but I'm not doing it”
