Many of my container gardens are made from repurposed materials, plant cuttings, anything that strikes my fancy at the moment.
Here’s a little “eye candy” and design ideas for the container garden enthusiast!
Create a vignette using inexpensive “Coca Cola” glasses from the dollar store, filled with gravel, sand and succulent cuttings.
The mosaic bottle unifies the look.
A repurposed muffin pan filled with moss makes a creative container display for succulent cuttings.
Orange tumbled glass adds color to my bromeliad while I wait for it to bloom!
Metal Figure Model + Common Annuals= Uncommon Combo!
“Sacred Succulent Gardens” add sculptures or figurines to your pots
“Simply Sorbet!” Don’t be afraid to add containers within containers.
Contrasting colors are striking.
Earthy Textures and Statuary for Your “Meditation Garden”
An art statement!
Zinc Planter Trio- “A Garden Within a Garden”
Just add the bunny and make this simple planting combination, special!
Use statuary and garden decor in your containers to add personality or to create a mini-themed garden.
Stack contrasting colored pots or pots of the same color for added dimension and drama
Use colored recycled glass as a mulch for your container plants for year-round color.
Anything that can hold up to water without rotting or leaching toxic chemicals into your container can be used as a decorative figurine.
Don’t be afraid to experiment and add your personal style to your garden!
