Cinder Block Planter Tips to Encrease Your Garden

Cinder block is a block made of concrete and coal cinders that usually used for building construction. The size of cinder block is the same size of a regular planter that we often see in a common garden. Therefore, if you want to have a garden that a bit different from others, you can replace your conventional plastic pot to a cinder block. Actually this trick is the cheapest way to decorate and matching the style of your house with the garden.
