Transform Your Backyard with These Easy Outdoor Projects


5. Build Your Planter Posts For String Lights

Lighting up the night with string lights is always a great idea. But what happens if you don’t have branches to post the lights? Creating your planter posts with planters, concrete, and 4×4 wood posts is possible. Make sure your posts are evenly placed within your planter using brackets before pouring the concrete to ensure that the post isn’t moved and then the rest is a breeze.

The greatest benefit of this project is that you don’t have to dig a hole and then be hopeful that the post will remain throughout your dry concrete drying.
