Antique Garden Inspiration

Uncategorized

We are in full force of planting containers for clients right now (despite the never ending rain). We are also on the constant search for interesting containers and garden features, and one of my favorite sources for inspiration and sources is 1st Dibs. Over the weekend I did some searching and here are some of the interesting items I found on my search.

Galvanized Stock Tanks in the Garden

Uncategorized

I have mentioned before that I have used galvanized stock tanks for our veggie gardens. The are the prefect solution to growing large tomatoes, lettuce and peppers in a smaller space. I am using these containers again for a client, but on a much large scale. While sourcing the larger containers I came across these great alternative uses for the stock tanks in the garden/yard.

Planted with evergreens and placed on wheels, the troughs create a large garden gate.
