It's that time of year again and I love the annual Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot in Orlando, Fla. The creative minds of the garden Imagineers are always fun to look at and discover throughout the park during spring. Here's one of the do it yourself planter ideas I saw that I wish we had more room to create at home but just because I can't do it, doesn't mean you can't. I took pictures of the concrete creation as well as instructions that were posted there. In eight simple, but not light steps, you too could put together a cool looking garden in one afternoon and build a small retaining wall for part or all of your backyard garden.

Let me know what you think and if you try it. Have fun in your garden!
