Wow! I love your backyard! It's so pretty and blooming remarkably well. Its the easiest planter hack literally everyone can attempt. If you've never thought your waste bin could double up as a planter think again. Thrifty yet practical, save tonnes of money on this project and get your garden blooming just like this one.

This is a great idea because it is more cost effective than some of those planters out there, and much lighter in weight so you have a better chance of moving it to another location if you need to. And because it is not too expensive, if by chance it does get damaged by a storm or something, you aren't out a big investment. Thank you for sharing the idea!

Your lobelia is so pretty! I love it when we can find a practical work around and save money too! I need planters this spring to transplant growing houseplants so this came just at the right time. I can handle this type of tool work so this is going on my to do list. My motivation is rising!

Lovely! I definitely think I could use this tutorial to grow something. My thumb isn't the greenest, but I try!
