Metal Planters inside wall protection coating

jmmedeiros(z9USA,CALIFORNI)April 14, 2010

Hello members,

Recently I baught in an estate sale 2 large steel planters that I plan to use to grow herbs. I dumped the potting mix, scraped off lose rust scales, brushed with a steel brush and washed out the rust powder. I will sand the inside and wash again with a solvent. I would like to know where I can find a tar based coating so I can line the interior and make it impermeable to water.I appreciate info on stores where it is available,brand names and comercial names.Thank you for the info.JM

Suggest start with Lowe's Home Improvement and search for "water coating." You will find roof and basement wall coatings which might do the job. Think also of coating the outside as well with a transparent substance.
