Many uses of crates. With a Canopy now up and recent storms. We weren’t too convinced that the mini stakes the canopy came with will hold it onto the ground. So, we had an idea with leftover material (Keeping it cheap!). Helping us to weigh this down and spruce it up.
First, we protected the pole with some black plastic, taped around it. Then doubled Burlap into the crate. Then River rock on the bottom 1/4.
Then some dirt. THEN, the Thriller, Filler, Spiller Rule of Thumb for Plant Containers. Thriller is a tall plant (Grasses, coleus, etc.). Then Filler, we just used Marigolds (Leftovers and CHEAP). Spillers are ones that spill over pot. We used Potato Vines… YES, we realize these get about 5, or so, feet long. We’ll figure that out as it happens. Maybe wrap around the crate to cover…?
Now, this is just a quick pic. Flowers haven’t filled in yet. So, it’ll only get prettier. And we are still managing this back corner. Leveled crates, adding to rock and mulch. Will be adding COLOR with decor. Etc. Up to Date photo coming SOON!
