The best container ideas for your outdoors succulent garden
Creating a succulent garden is very tempting for every gardener as these plants are very easy to take care of. They require minimal conditions to thrive and don’t need lots of space. Succulents come in all forms so you can choose what kinds to grow in your garden. These beauties can be used for creating some stunning garden arrangements which will attract everyone. You don’t have to be a professional landscape gardener in order to grow succulents. These plants are unpretentious and only need a container, soil and some pebbles. You also need to place them in a bright and sunny location. One of the most important things that you need to keep in mind is ensuring good drainage.
Once you know how to grow succulents, it is time to take a look at 3 of the best container ideas for your succulent garden.
1. A wall of art made of succulents
This project is actually both very attractive and very cheap. You won’t have to spend lots of money creating it, as it will allow you to repurpose old items such as a picture frame and an old wooden board. First, you need to cut the wood board into 4 pieces. Use exterior wood glue to stick a greenhouse shading material onto the picture frame. Next you need to glue the wood pieces on top of the shading material so that you create a box. You need to make drainage holes in the bottom of the frame. It is now time for the soil to be added into the frame. It is better to mix it with moss. You will also need one piece of exterior plywood which you have to cut in order to fit the box. Make crosses in the shading materials using scissors and push in the succulents. Water the frame but don’t attach it on the wall immediately. Leave it lying on the ground for a week so that the plants can settle.
2. Succulent fairy garden
This is a very attractive idea as you can use whatever decorative items you prefer. You can ask your kids to help you and create together an amazing magical world. All you have to do is fill the container with potting soil and plant the succulents you’ve chosen for your garden. Sprinkle a bit of gravel and decorate it however you want.
3. Vintage birdcage garden
Succulents can thrive in almost all kinds of containers. Use a plastic plate to line the bottom of an old birdcage and pour a small amount of sand. You can then add the succulents and cover their roots with little soil. It is easy to be done and the result is very eye-catching.
