We had a plastic wheelbarrow kicking around the yard from when the kids were smaller and in their super helpful stage. A stage that went by too fast I tell you! I seem to have lost the rest of the photos I took along the way of this simple project but you guys are smart enough to not even need instructions! I know it!
Anyways just so I have something to say, all I did was take the biggest drill bit I could find and drill about 4 or 5 holes in the bottom of the plastic wheel barrow. I sprayed the entire thing with an outdoor spray paint that was good for plastic and metal since the handles and wheel are metal but the rest is plastic. I then lined the wheelbarrow with landscaping fabric so that all the dirt didn’t drip out the holes I just drilled. Then I filled it with premixed potting soil and assorted petunias.
And then… I set it in a spot of the garden that needed a little boost of colour!
What is the most interesting use for a planter off the top of your head… GO!
