Unique outdoor container planting ideas

Planting a container garden is an enjoyable gardening idea. You can make it as large or as small as you need, and you can place them wherever you like. The first step in creating this kind of garden is selecting the kind of container you will use.

Round and Round

Tires are a versatile choice, available in sizes from tiny to huge, for bicycles, tractors, cars, motorcycles, golf carts and more.

Carrying Loads

Turning a wheelbarrow into a container garden makes for an eye-catching accent piece in which to plant flora and fauna.

Cask It

Barrels make great container gardens. You can set them on end, or halve them lengthwise and use them that way.

Cargo Space

Grow plants in crates. Whether wooden or plastic, they're great for this purpose.

Innovative Idea
