Buying larger planters can be very expensive but if you are looking for a simpler design this Ikea hack is a great alternative. I bought these Ikea Fniss trash cans and turned them into planters. Have to say I really love how these turned out, they are pretty sturdy and has the modern look I am going for in our patio design.
To turn them into planters just drill holes in the bottom to let access water out and bought inexpensive plastic patterns in my local garden warehouse. In total, I paid about 2 dollars per planter, 1 dollar for the trashcans, and 1 for the plate. I think it looks great for 2 dollars and makes a huge difference on my patio.
