This has to be one of the cheapest and easiest ways to create your own modern succulent planter. For a full list of materials used and some important tips, click the link below:

All material used:
-16 double and 5 single cored cinder blocks
-1 roll of landscape fabric
-Cactus soil
-Assorted succulents


I will list each row, from left to right, starting with the bottom row. All blocks are laid parallel to the walls they are against unless specified as "turned". If it says "turned" then turn those blocks so they are perpendicular to the surrounding wall. The "*" block is the one that touches the corner/ middle of the arrangement:

Row 1 (bottom)- single, double turned, single, double, double*, double, double

Row 2- double, double turned, double, single*, double, double turned, single

Row 3- double, double turned, double*, double

Row 4- double, double*

Row 5 (top)- single*
