Tools for creating a flower bed

For the construction we will need the following materials:

  1. Canister made of plastic. A conventional can of machine oil or, for example, a 5 liter can from under the water may come up. It all depends on what form you want to see our future bed( cat) if the canister is too wide, then our cat will also be fat.
  2. Metal wire. We will need metal wire to fix the mustache, and also to fix the cement to our base, but about everything further.
  3. Cement, sand, gypsum, wooden bars and gloves.

So, in the first step we make a base from a can. Our canister with a capacity of 5 liters. If your task is to make a large flowerbed, then, respectively, use a larger version of the canister. So, for example, the neighbors at the dacha used a 20-liter base for our flower bed, which allowed them to plant more flowers in the flower bed.

We thread through our canister with metal wire through, that will allow to fix cement on the base without any problems. Otherwise, the cement fixed to the wire will simply slip from our base. After we pierced our canister wire. The next step comes, in which we need to substitute and fix the wooden blocks on the base, which later form the legs, head and tail of our future flowerbed - the cat.

We prepare the cement mortar in a 1: 1 ratio with sand, which will allow us to glue our canister completely, notice that it is necessary to stitch with rubber gloves. Rubber gloves we need to ensure that our solution does not dry out on our hands. So we cover our base with a solution.

After the base is ready, proceed to form the head of our cat. Please note that this is not a quick operation, we cover our wooden block with a solution and make it in the form of a ball. Please note that after the head is ready to leave it to dry for 2-3 days, during the drying process, always sprinkle our flower bed with water. This is done so that the cement-sand mortar solution does not crack or collapse.

After the solution has dried up, take a small sandpaper and start rubbing our irregularities with it.

Our flowerbed is almost ready. Now let's arm ourselves with colors. We will need water-based paints that are not afraid of moisture. We need paints of this kind, because they will protect our screed, and they will not run under the influence of weather conditions, such as: rain and wind.
