Turning an Old Tree Stump Into Planter

Some people spend a fortune trying to rid their property of an old tree stump. Some even consider this natural memory an eyesore. Stumps can take ten or more years to decay naturally. You may not want to wait that long. So if you’re trying to change the look of an old tree stump, why not turn it into a planter? Using the tutorial provided by Lowes, you can turn an old dead stump into a container garden full of colorful life.

You will need:

  • a wire basket
  • preservative
  • sphagnum moss
  • soil
  • fertilizer, if desired
  • choice of plants

After you’ve gathered your supplies, the steps are pretty simple. You can see a detailed account of the process, along with photos, on the link provided. But, basically, all you do is add a bit of preservative to the stump, to extend its life. Then, attach the basket or wire of your choosing to the stump. You need to pack the basket’s walls with soaked and prepared moss and then add the soil inside moss lined basket. Now your stump planter is ready for a good watering before adding your favorite plants.

As you see, there’s no such thing as an eyesore in nature, just opportunities to create new, natural centerpieces.
