These seventeen projects have one thing in common in that they are all made from concrete. This is ideal for DIY projects since is is inexpensive and can be bought ready mixed just requiring the addition of water. This list of projects includes several types of containers as well as garden furniture and other items of decor. These projects are described in an article by Kathy Woodard which I found on The Garden Glove website.
