The first thing I did was measure the pant leg in several spots, then bend and tie chicken wire to fit each leg. I make a ‘basket’ at the wasit to suppot the plant. When puttin into place drive two metal posts through the ground to keep the planter upright and stable. I made these two for my neighbors, Ana and Albert. He is a big time hunter so I thought the camo pants would be perfect. That’s actually me in the last two pictures! Hey!
