This is the most stupid Idea I've eveer seen. Books are ment to be read.-

This is a nice idea however, it is my preference to use two books of the same or different thickness for larger succulents and bigger books to host a variety of cacti. Waterproofing the bottom is best with the addition of pebble sized gravel, then a layer of landscape material to put the soil and plant in works out best. This way one in not limited to shallow rooting plants.

The succulent soil compacts very well, and so I haven't had a problem with this, three months in. It has the same drainage issues that all potted plants have. If you're worry about the soil falling through, you could use landscape cloth to hold it in.

"....awesome looking, but you missed some steps I think. The soil just goes straight onto the screen? What keeps it from falling through? How do you protect your furniture under it? I thought the bottom would be solid. Let me know, thanks!!"
I agree, how do you keep it from damaging the furniture and the soil in?
