The use of recyclable products on balcony decoration are recently brightening like a star. One of the most important is a soda can planter of course. Also, that can planter is known as ‘La Croix planter’. As of late, people prefer soda can planters as much as tin can planters in many parts of homes, particularly balconies. In this article, I am going to mention soda can planters and its reasons for preference. I will also share the part of how to make your soda planter later.
Soda cans matter a lot for balcony decoration. Precisely, they should share the same setting with other decorative ornaments like an animal planter in a balcony. In other words, it is reasonable behaviour to spare an empty can and to evaluate it for making planter instead of throwing away a trash bin. Thus, you give an existential purpose for soda cans again in a sense. So what kind of cans should you use for making a planter?
Different Types of Cans
Cans you will able to use are, for example, soda, coke, beer and energy drink cans respectively. The material of the cans is produced from aluminium. No matter how much weak to the external pressure, aluminium is appropriate to be a planter. Some cans have single-coloured whereas others have branded, artistic pictures, words with big calligraphic letters. I think it is worth making a planter with cans.
On the other hand, there are plants which you would use are succulent types. Some of these succulents types are aloe vera, cactus, sunburst and so on. Also, they are known as ornamental plants for indoor and outdoor. Thus, you can make your can planters with good combinations. Meanwhile, you should consider a couple of ways how to leave idle a can for making a plater.
If you play a game console, you must be consuming a lot of coke. Or else if you meet often with your friends at the park, all of you may be drinking cokes together. Having finished your daily activity, you should take all coke cans to your home. Herewith you can turn into them a coke can planters for your balcony. Likewise, you could also do the same for beer planters and energy drink planters.
A can as a planter has a lot of advantages. The most important one is you can be putting a little soil into it. Therefore, you use less soil. I mean you can make a series of great can planters in that way. Meanwhile, carrying a can also is considerably easier and practicer than a gabion planter. I mean if you can sometimes put the sunlight side your balcony or if it rains extremely in your balcony, you could change its place at will.
