She Grabs A Drill And Makes Several Holes In A Tree Stump To Create A Beautiful Planters

There’s something about creating a beautiful display of flowers or a blooming garden that is therapeutic on many levels. The mental and physical energy that goes into the activity provides good exercise, and the added beauty brightens up each day. Gardening has been linked to lowered stress levels, too, which is always a good thing.

Choosing what kinds of plants you’ll grow and display isn’t the only way to get creative with gardening, either. With all plants, you need somewhere for them to grow, like a hanging planter or cool concrete pot. But, what if both of those containers aren’t exactly your style? Maybe you’d like to keep it a little more natural.

If that’s the case, we’ve got the perfect planter for you: log planters.
