Supplies and Tools:
Aviation snips
Cordless saw or hand saw 

I was called by a client in Santa Clarita, California. They were selling their homes and moving up to Colorado. After the Realtor checked their beautiful home, she requested a huge repair list of repairs. Jim wanted all the old planters to be demolished.

This post shows the six steps to Tear Down a flower box that is no longer being used for flowers or plants. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows what planters needs demolished.
Step 2: Fig.2 and fig.3 shows the use of aviation snips to cut the metal bands around the old planters.

Step 4: Fig.5 shows only the wood is left behind.
