9 easy ways to elevate your garden style with Efex Moldings

It doesn’t matter if your garden style is herbs in your kitchen, or a full vegetable patch outside. Big or small, using Efex bendable moldings and a little paint can elevate your garden’s style. You can even use our moldings for flower vases, to add a little unique touch to your planting table, or flower display.

You can use any old pot, terracotta, plaster, fiberglass, plastic, all work for a redo. It’s a bonus when the pot is big and you’re still able to lift it!

Here are 9 great examples we’ve seen over the years on how to Efex your outside world.

When we first began distributing Efex, we did a series of small clay pots, and then the windows boxes in front of the store.

We followed up a few weeks later on the clay pots and they were still in great shape. I am happy to report that two years on they are still in great shape. Our T36 trim is just perfect for the window boxes.

Down under our Australian and New Zealand distributor did the same thing in her garden with a stunning effect. They have lived outside full time through a raining New Zealand winter and are still perfect. The one on the right has shells from the Coastal Collection and the one on the left has just one simple T30.

And speaking of down under, we can not forget these stunning elegant planters from New Zealand using P15 and D4s.


My friend Margret Wolley has had this pot outside in the New Zeland weather for about 5 maybe six years and it’s still going strong. She used elements from the Country Collection for a layered look.


Back here in the USA our good friend Matthew Mead has done some great outdoor work with Efex.

to these fabulous pots. Matthew always adds style to every project he touches.


This lavender pot was a great success. Using a fine stone additive and then painting, she really added to the total authenticity of this project. It really did look like an old clay pot when it was done. One simple T9 made all the difference in the world.


One of our all time favorites is from our recent mention in This Old House magazine.

This project which recreated federal flower boxes using R39, D8, and SW21 was just terrific.

Which one is your favorite? We would love to hear your comments, or if you like share on Pinterest.
