Cinder block planters - almost threw away some cinder blocks! Now I have a place to plant my strawberries!

Another great idea for the yard. Use cinderblocks to create a vertical garden. Would be a great way to provide a little privacy against my chain link fence.

Cinder block planter bar. Great for under my kitchen window. Would make a nice pass through shelf.

Put strawberry plants in concrete blocks to edge a garden. This helps keep the strawberries off the ground and the warmth of the blocks helps them grow.

CONCRETE BLOCK PLANTERS Basalite blocks come in half or full size (16"x 8" x 8") to accommodate two plants; available at Home Depot for $1.48. succulents work well.

do this on the retaining wall to add interest... but will people bump their legs too much?

DIY Cinder Block 'sofa': This certainly isn't for everyone, but I love how this cinderblock sofa almost takes on a kid-like quality. It's like it's built out of legos! I'd probably toss a cushion across the bench seat, but I love the plants organically growing out of the back. (I like how it can grow "into" the backyard and not be ruined in weather - wb)

Budget-Friendly Bench A clever concrete block bench for only $30. Scrap fabric covers the pillows and the plank that top off this truly brilliant seating area.

CINDER BLOCK STAIRS...use dirt and some "step-able" plants for a greener area! I'd also add some decking wood with a dark stain to the tops of each step and paint the bricks.
