FAQ about Making a Log Planter:
Q. How long will it last?
A. This is the 3rd summer I’ve had it and the underside is beginning to show a little rot, but still very solid and I expect to get another 3 years at least out of it.
Q. Does the log hold water?
A. Not very well. We have to water it every other day in the summer.
Q. What tree makes the best log planter?
A. The harder your wood, the longer it will last. However, hardwood is difficult to cut. We used Maple which isn’t as soft as pine nor hard as oak. It seems about perfect for this.
