Small batch colored concrete for your home and garden.

Form + Root is a concrete design company in Sunny San Diego specializing in colored concrete pieces for your home and garden. We offer over 90 styles in 24+ beautifully crafted colors for air plant holders, planters, candles, trays, coasters, and accessories.

I first started working with concrete and silicone molds to fulfill my personal need for planters in my growing succulent garden. I created the company to support my desire to expand what I could make and have been overwhelmed with all of your support of my small business.

We do a little happy dance for every order! We hope you enjoy these colorful pieces in your home and garden as much as we’ve enjoyed making them.

Cheers,
Dana

Custom and personalized orders

We can do custom colors, marbling and finishing. Message us with your request and we will let you know if we can deliver your needs.

What happens if the product is damaged while shipping?

We do our best to protect your order, but accidents happen. Shipping insurance is included with every shipment just in case. To file a claim, please send over two pictures of the damaged product and two pictures of the shipping box. Please hold on to all packaging and products in case an inspection is needed. We offer free replacements or refunds if the claim is accepted.

What is Hyrdo-dipped?

Hydro-dipping is a technique using suspended paint on water to marble the paint and dip the product in the water. The result is a beautiful marbled paint on the product. Check out any of our listings for examples of the end product. We recommend 3 colors for a piece you will love.

Cleaning for colored concrete planters (do not follow this for any of our hydro-dipped painted products)

Taking proper care of your concrete product will ensure long-lasting use. Concrete is a naturally porous material that has many pockets for dirt to gather, mold to grow, or spilled materials to collect.

If a stain does appear on our colored concrete planters (do not follow this for any of our hydro-dipped painted products), we recommend the following steps:
1. Remove plant, dirt, and stones from the planter. Gently wipe any surface dirt or efflorescence with a wet paper towel or rag.
2. Soak the product in water for 2-4 hours. It will remove non-greasy stains without chemicals.
3. If the stain is still present, we recommend using a diluted Pinesol mixture (1/4 cup per gallon of water ratio). Apply with a rag or brush, rinse with water.

Cleaning colored concrete trays and coasters (do not follow this for any of our hydro-dipped painted products)

If a stain does appear on our colored concrete trays, we recommend the following steps:
1. Gently wipe any surface dirt or efflorescence with a wet paper towel or rag.
2. For removing non-greasy stains, spray water onto the stained area and let soak for 5-10 minutes, rinse and wipe dry.
3. If the stain is still present, we recommend using a diluted Pinesol mixture (1/4 cup per gallon of water ratio). Apply with a rag or brush, rinse with water and wipe dry.
4. For deep set-in stains, we recommend removing any adhesives (rubber feet and cork backing), and then soaking in water for 2- 4 hours and if still present, follow step number 3. We do sell or recommend replacement adhesives after a good deep clean.

Will there be bubbles or air pockets in the product?

Concrete is a naturally porous material that has air bubbles and pockets throughout. We do our best to ensure there is as little as possible in the product when we are shipping out our pieces. We use additives and vibration tables when pouring the cement into our molds. There will be minimal to small bubbles throughout all of our products. This is common and expected with the natural look of concrete.

Can I fix any scratches or chips in my Form + Root product?

Yes, you can also wet polish with 400 grit sandpaper to smooth out any scratches or chipped edges of the product. We recommend resealing with Eco Advance sealer for our planters and a countertop sealer for our trays to your desired finish.
