    Hi all,

    I've read here about render on blockwork planters failing, or showing damp spots. I have had one built on my drive, but not yet filled with topsoil.

    Obviously I want to avoid having these issues. Should I line the planter inside with a sheet of PVC, up to the soil line? Or is there some sort of waterproofing I can paint onto the inner walls of the planter?

    Thanks!
    Tim

    Just lining the sides, as the bottom is open and it's very sandy below.

    I wondered if a coat of Blackjack may a suitable alternative? Saves drilling into newly rendered walls, albeit from the un-rendered side
