Drilling Instructions

 

 
 
 

Step 1

Place the planter upside down so that it is firmly on the ground.

 
 
 
 

Step 2

On the bottom of each planter is an outlined circle denoted with a 1/4” mark. Some planters may not have this marking. In that case, pick a spot toward the center on the bottom surface of the planter that is smooth.

 
 
 
 

Step 3

Drill a hole in this circle through both walls of the planter using an electric drill (1/4 - 3/4 bit recommended).

You will also see a hole covered with a colored plastic plug. This hole is necessary for the manufacturing process and should not be confused with the hole to be drilled for water drainage. You can unplug this hole and fill the space between the inner and outer wall of the planter with sand or gravel to increase its weight in windy environments. Simply put the plug back in place and turn the planter right side up. Do not fill with water as the plastic plug is not waterproof. On larger planters, you may also see indentations on the bottom. These indentations are supports for the double-walled construction of the planter, and will compromise its structural integrity if they are drilled through.
