has anyone made a elevated planter out of plastic barrel cut down lengthwise. barrel would be in half and on its side.?


If you didn't mind using the whole barrel for one planter, you could place one half cut-side-down to make a base, and then bolt the other half cut-side-up on top of it.

Yeah, that would work fine, I think.  Depending on how thick the plastic is, you might need to bolt on a few pieces of wood to help it keep its shape.

I've been doing lots with barrels of of late.  When you cut a barrel length wise it will loose its rigid form.  Even when I cut one in half I had to add a bike rim to the lip.  I'd say you would need to give it a border on the cut edge or gravity will make it look like crap.

 i am sure it has been done if it hasnt though i kinda have an idea on how it could be done 

You saw the barrel in half and lait on its side then attach 2x4's so it will be free standing.
