Easy Container

This planter bowl is located on top of the waterfall filter in our front garden in Laguna. For years I planted it with annuals which I was forever having to replant, fertilize to keep looking lush, and prune and deadhead, all of which was very difficult due to the location of the pot. Finally I resorted to succulents and I have been happy with it ever since. There is a soft, peaceful hue to the colors and it is very low maintenance.

I did this too with my waterbed pond. I got tired of replanting and deadheading all the time. So I resorted to succulents and I am so much happier. I think they look a lot nicer and more interesting. Yours looks great too!!! I want to see your waterfall!!!!

What a beautiful idea! I may have to build a waterfall to plant with succulents! We don't have rocks here in south Florida, and I am so jealous of your westerners!!! LOL.

I am so glad you put succulants in your planter...it is just stunning! (And sunning)...with no work on your part!!! YEAH
