If you have a backyard garden, then there’s a better than average chance you have a few varieties of flowers growing somewhere; they do add beautiful décor to the area they are grown in. Flowers add vibrant color schemes to the garden when added, and there are plenty of non-traditional methods of including them in the yard, or garden. One of my favorite methods of adding unconventional décor to my garden is using flower pots, but not just any flower pots, broken flower pots, or even those that are arranged to appear as though they were knocked over, spilling their beautiful contents into the yard for all to see. These types of arrangements can really breathe new life into an old garden bed.
The thing I like best about this DIY gardening project is that there are no steadfast rules to follow; you can use your imagination and construct the arrangement as you see fit. It can be as simple as burying half of the pot below ground level, and arranging the bed to look as though it is flowing out from the pot, spreading across the ground in any given direction. You can also incorporate broken pots into the garden sculpting, rather than tossing them in the trash and buying new ones.
If you’re not a fan of using flower pots for this type of DIY project, then consider using, or repurposing something you currently own, such as an old wine barrel, wheelbarrow, an old wooden washtub, or whatever it is you have and want to use. Once you have chosen the object for the project, you need to select the types of flowers you want to plant, and then select a location with soil conditions and sun requirements for the flowers being grown. After that you simply use your imagination to assemble a vivid arrangement for your garden.
There really is no end to what can be used, or to how it can be arranged to create the stunning décor you’ve been looking to add to your garden. These non-traditional gardening concepts really are eye catching. We have arranged them in the past, and will probably do so again this spring, and every time we get them assembled we have neighbors who stop by to comment and ask questions about how we did it; they may a great conversation piece! You can even create an entire arrangement using an old dump truck!
