Park Avenue Bench and Planter
Sakrete 5000 Plus and CHENG’s Outdoor Concrete Pro-Formula are used to cast both the planters and the bench top to assure fade resistance.

Previous: Forming Bench Top
The bench top is just 2-3/4″ thick and spans more than 30″ between the two planters. Heavy reinforcing with rebar and mesh is what keeps the bench intact.
Excavating the rigid foam from the planter boxes is a time consuming process but worth the effort. Be sure to preserve the forms for future use.
