Using Found Items For Garden Decor

I love interesting places to display flowers. Especially when they are easy since I don't have much of a green thumb. Here are some things I've done:

I used an old wheelbarrow by drilling holes in the bottom for drainage, throw in some gravel then top w/soil and plants. Plants that hang off the sides look great and something big and flashy in the middle. You can also lay the barrow on its side and design from there.

Another great tip is using old chairs that have lost their seat in them.

Quite lovely. Those of us in SE Wisconsin just survived a couple weeks of terribly cold and snowy weather, so your photos are a wonderful sight.

If using an old wheelbarrow, I first sprayed the inside with rust stop spray, and I also spray the wood with water seal once a year so it won't rot and fall apart!

Ever try an old wooden ladder for a trellis? It is just beautiful! Have fun in your garden!
