If the options for planters at the garden centre leave you feeling a little uninspired, why not try some DIY garden planters this year? Here are some of my favourite ideas.
I always find myself feeling a little dismayed by the choices for planters and flower pots at regular stores and garden centres. They always seem to me to be really plain and uninteresting or really tacky and not something that I’d be interested in having on my porch. The other issue is that they’re often really expensive! Even a pair of the simplest planters can easily cost you over $100 at a garden centre. Last year, I really started to use my creativity to come up with some ideas for different types of containers that I can use as planters and I came up with some options that I really loved! Here are some of my favourites that I discovered, along with a few other options for DIY Garden Planters that you can actually build yourself for an outdoor space that’s much more interesting and much less expensive to put together.
