jerks.they're everywhere. maybe it's not unique to my town,but we have people here that like to go in people's yards and steal their bigger plant pots,usually only to throw them like halloween pumpkins up the street.bored activity i guess. but to go back a lil bit,i was asking a coworker about her planters..she lives near me,and i think they're cool looking.she said they were really heavy tho. so i asked her if they weight them. she looked at me as if it were an odd question,and said no. in my yard,whenever i have a really large planter i want to put out,i always put bricks in the bottom,so people can't walk off with them...easily. one summer,we had the windows open and were watching tv,when we heard somebody rummaging about in the yard. sure enough,he was trying to steal one. before we could do anything,we heard a really loud groan,and somebody fall down before he ran away. so we did what any rhode islander would do.opened the window and laughed at his dumb butt. take that,buddy.hope it hurt you thief.

I don't know why, but for some reason I find the thought of people stealing planters out of people's yards absolutely funny! You are smart to weight down your planters with bricks! I can't believe the nerve of those crooks to come into your yard while you were awake and watching tv! Are they not smart enough to wait until either you're not home or have gone to bed? Wait....they're stealing planters, they can't be too smart to begin with! LOL
that's hilarious! talk about adding insult to injury! here, houses have perimeter fences made of cement, topped with ironwork, and iron gates out front. my mother swears she lost one rose plant. if true, it means whoever took it climbed over the fence and passed it on to someone.

Well, that is not very neighborly to have strange people come and try to steal your potted plants. You are smart to weigh them down. How about cementing the pots into the ground so you cannot tell they are not moveable?
