Succulent Wheelbarrow Planter

So, what do you do when you have an old stump to camouflage, a wheelbarrow with holes and dribs and drabs of different outdoor succulents? Why, make a planter of course!

This old wheelbarrow had seen better days and had quite a few rusted out holes in the bottom of it. Placing a few pieces of old screening in its base kept the soil in but still allowed for drainage. First I rolled the wheelbarrow into place, much easier to do before it is filled. Then I filled it with a potting soil and compost mix and was ready to start planting!

Using starts and plants left over from other projects, I just popped them into the planter. So quick and easy to do!

I added a hypertufa container with blue pebbles for a little pizzazz. Loving how the blue pebbles match the blue of the wheelbarrow, too!

A terracotta pot holds a few extra succulents and adds interest at the base of the wheelbarrow planter.

This top view shows the variety of outdoor succulents that have been planted in the wheelbarrow. As they multiply, I will have a ready supply of succulents to use in other projects as well!

An inexpensive and pretty cover up!
