I live in the country in an old farmhouse, and we have plenty of space for gardening, but I love the look of this container garden and may do something just like this on our back patio. We often get winds that have blown our lighter weight flower pots around, so this idea may be just what we need to create an area that could shelter our pots a bit. I do love to have lots of flowers on our patio in pots, maybe because summer is so short here in Wisconsin. Great idea and inspiration!

This is a great craft since I live in the city and don't have a backyard. but now I can still enjoy having a garden!
