We have a older property with a number of tree stumps. Eventually we like to remove them (by grinding or burning) but for now they are here to stay. So to make the best of the situation, I thought it make the perfect little container garden spot.
Just acquire a wine barrel (sometimes you can come across free ones. You can also purchase them inexpensively at the home improvement and hardware stores.)
Place directly over low tree stump and plant with your favorite flowers.
I planted strawberries in mine.
Now my kids have a built-in outdoor snack bar.
For some more inspiration, I found this wine barrel container garden from Centsational Girl. She made good use of the barrel's depth.
I also found this image, to satisfy those with the current succulent rage. So cute.
The options are endless. What would you do?
