For this small project I found a beautiful big planter in my favorite color; green. This 16" piece with a ceramic-look is from the garden collection of BHG at Walmart and will the perfect accessory to display my succulents.
On Walmart I also found a wonderful assortment of succulents in different heights and leaf shapes. Before planting, the planter needed to be drilled on the bottom in order for it to drain well. Once the hole was done, I placed inside a couple of rocks for drainage purposes also. Once the soil was in, all I needed was to arrange the succulents before they went in to have a better idea of how they will end up looking.
|The greens in this arrangement make it feel so fresh and full of life.|
When all the planting was done, I used a "scrolled iron" plant stand to raised the planter. Now that it's ready I can't wait to sit here in the evenings, wine glass at hand and relax!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial as always let me know how you're planning to start off the Spring season. Are you planting, updating a room or perhaps redecorating the entire house?
