Container gardening is easy and great for instant color gratification. But, it’s especially fun to find “unconventional” objects to use as a planter. You may have noticed my little red wagon planter in the Landscaping 101 post. My 3 Step Little Red Wagon Planter is sure to bring color to your landscaping while also providing some fun and whimsy. Plus, it’s easily rolled to a new spot if you want to change your view. But, the best part is, you can make this planter in 3 steps!
- Large drill bit
- Little wagon or other container
- Hand trowel
Step 1: Drill several holes in the bottom of the wagon for drainage.
Step 2. Add a layer of rocks to the bottom of the wagon to assist with drainage.
Step 3. Add a layer of good potting soil or dirt to the wagon. And you’re ready to fill your planter!
I added some impatients, but any outdoor plants would be happy in this little red wagon.
The wagon is a perfect mate for my ivy topiary.
But, it also likes to travel and visit the other potted plants.
Do you have any interesting containers that would make great planters? I’m always looking for new idea. Please share them with me in the comments!
Have a great week y’all!
