Seems like I love container planting more and more as time goes by. I love being creative and taking inspiration from other gardeners to come up with my own creations.
Although there are many wonderful websites to inspire us, my latest favorite is Fine Gardening Magazine's website. Of course, the website is my photo source!
Today's inspiration is a glimpse of Chanticleer Garden.
Looks like this gorgeous and unique container is more of a mini raised bed, put together with pieces of slate, cut in various sizes. My idea is to make the pieces made of concrete . . . the forms would be super easy to make.
Two of them placed diagonally would be awesome looking! Wouldn't it? I would love to see this exact design on a larger scale, placed diagonally, as the focal point of a front yard. Awesome! We are looking for ideas for raised beds as an alternative to way too much grass in the front yard and this design would be great.
Color variations are endless by using concrete tints or by painting them. Anyway, love the design! Who knows? We may gather the energy to get this project done after the huge tree stump comes down!
