I would like my planter lighter and not have to use all the potting mix at once. Any ideas?

Fillers can be used in the bottom 1/3 of large containers.
Some suggestions are packing peanuts or styrofoam chunks, crushed soda cans, or plastic milk jugs.
Garden centers also carry round inserts that will fit into the bottom 1/3 of the pot, this keeps the soil level higher.
