Introducing the planter box made with blocks!
Guaranteed the most durable planter box on the market. Timber planter boxes are prone to rotting and termites and galvanised garden beds are likely to rust over time. Concrete Blocks are compressive strength rated and are made to last forever. You really can’t go wrong with a concrete block planter box.

Top Tip For Being Budget Savvy:
This is a brilliant concept for saving money and maximising your planter box space, and it looks fantastic too….
DON’T USE CAPS!
Just fill the blocks with soil and you get extra space to place your herbs or plants. For example, the herbs that are more likely to spread, like mint. If you plant the mint into the blocks this separates the herb from the remainder of the plants and it will be easier to control. It’s all about thinking outside of the planter box!
