What’s your favorite thing about summertime? For me, it is probably getting out back in my garden and making things grow. There is just something so magical about being able to plant a seed in the ground and a few weeks later being able to watch as it grows into something beautiful (or edible, or both).
But making a beautiful garden involves more than just planting. You also need beautiful planters and lawn ornaments. Earlier this year I learned how you can build a tower of “tipsy pots” for gardening in small spaces. I also learned an easier way to create a patio water garden. Now I’ve found a video which taught me how I can make a couple of really cool planter creations using nothing more than simple terracotta pots!
There are two projects in this video, and both of them are excellent for making use of small spaces. So if you are an urban gardener, I think you will particularly enjoy these tutorials. But these planters would do a lot to spruce up any patio or garden space. I especially love the really quirky one which involves gluing all the pots together into a sphere shape. When he is putting it together, it is hard to imagine what it will become, or how it could serve as a functional planter—but when you see the final result, I think it will blow your mind. I can’t wait to try these. If you give either project a shot, be sure to share your results with us! Video tutorial by BHG Youtube.
