DIY Upcycled Brick Planter Box

Believe it or not, I just found these beautiful old bricks hanging out in the backyard, hidden in some bushes! I was pretty much ecstatic when I found them! I thought “Oh my gosh… Oh the great things that I can do with these bricks!”
I decided that I would make a raised planter box and put it near the pool, where the hose is already hooked up… My logic being that maybe I’ll water everything a little more and not kill it??!

After I had my bricks stacked to the perfect, random height, I started wheel-barreling some soil from our backyard into my planter. (I chose the soil from our backyard rather than potting soil not only because it is free, but because here in this area is supposed to be some of the nicest and richest soil in Ontario!)
I must say that my planter was looking pretty darn cute, by now! However, I still needed to stabilize and secure it. 
This may sound scary and a little tricky, but really, I used the easiest and simplest method possible!
