They’re set in some type of resin/plaster which ought to maintain them in place simply high quality. I took out the previous vegetation that had been in my urns and left about 1/2 the dust in them. Then I merely positioned the brand new topiaries on prime of the flattened dust and coated them each with marble chips we had readily available.

And right here’s how they appear on our entrance porch. I really like them a lot! I like that they appear very pure and they aren’t utterly good, however have little tendrils of leaves popping up throughout. Simply fluff the leaves and pull the stems round to cowl any holes.

I coated the underside of the container utterly with the marble chips and it finishes them off properly with no dust exhibiting.
