They’re set in some kind 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 high of the flattened dust and lined them each with marble chips we had available.

And right here’s how they give the impression of being on our entrance porch. I really like them a lot! I like that they give the impression of being very pure and they don’t seem to be 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 lined the underside of the container utterly with the marble chips and it finishes them off properly with no dust exhibiting.
