There are a few ways to camouflage the drain tube, as shown in these photos. Plants in the ground at the edge of the patio where the drain tube extends out is an ideal way to hide the drain tube. Using ceramics is another way to cover the drain tube.

Notice the elevator feet ( blue turtle ) at the bottom of the planters. Using elevator feet, the drip tray will slide under ANY size of pot with no weight resting on the tray. Three elevator placed around the bottom of the pot to keep it elevated is all that is needed. This will need to be done when a pot weighs more than 125 lbs.

The above and below photos show the inside and outside of the drip tray. The inside bottom of the tray is concaved with ridges for placing a pot inside the tray, if desired. The outside of the tray has a broken elevated ring (1/4 in) around the bottom to allow for cleaning under the tray when hosing off, as well as allowing the underside to dry and not cause mold to form.

Below ... When a patio surface is slanted a degree or two downward, consider placing the drain spout to the down side in order to have the drip water flow to the lower side of the drip tray. Using an elbow, as shown below, will direct the drip water off the patio surface.

Using the expansion joint in concrete to channel out the excess drip water is a perfect way to exit the water to the edge of the patio. When pots are used on a wood deck, placing the drain spout at the opening between the wood will allow the drip water drop through.
