    Great easy to follow project, I have a few ideas for my own now, many thanks.
    I will use your tip of leaving the inner pot in place but I might put a few screws in the sides from the inside and wrap a little chicken wire over it for additional support, I had the idea of using silicone to stick coloured glass pebbles to the inside wall of the big pot then when I cut it away they should be embedded in the pot, worth a try lol.

    Great video! The planter turned out great. Makes me want to go out and get some concrete!

    I would imagine blue berries would do well, since they like a pH of 4 to 5.

    It would have been better if the plastic turned the lime into Skittles.

    You could also try using some pure powder pigments to mix your own colors or add some real vibrant colors to the concrete. I'm assuming those liquid ones are the same, just premixed with water, but I've seen some really crazy vibrant colors made with powder pigments!

    This is really beautiful. I love how the 3 colors blend together to make an artistic design. Nice.

    This may come in hand when we re-do our landscaping. Love the look of this and the dye makes it easy to customize too! Also, like how you combat the concrete lime with a lemon tree haha!

    Make sure the tree gets plenty of sunlight with all that shade your throwing.

    Never heard of concrete dye! Now that's something I need to look up for future projects! Thanks Ben!

    Love the idea! But it would be better if i could repeat that without destroying the planters. Could you make a video with that in mind? That would be even more helpful.
    Keep up the good work!

    The hombre look adds a great touch this this. A few of these together would make a great grouping!

    That’s really nice looking with the gradient. I wouldn’t have thought about letting it soak.

    Turned out great! I like the gradient effect – does the dye come in other colors than just black?

    If your lemon tree does end up dying, it's totally fine because you've got enough shade of your own! #simplemindedcommenters #benuyedathrowsmoreshadethanatree

    Nice job Ben! Every time I see a concrete project of yours it makes me want to pick up a bag and try something. Thanks for another great video!
