This was probably my favorite container garden I made this summer. I kept it right by the back door so every time I came home or left the house I would see it.

It was easy to create and even easier to maintain. We had such a wet summer, I don't think I watered it once.

I did bang a ton of holes in the bottom with a large nail and filled most of the bottom with Better Than Rocks, to take up space--succulents don't need much soil. I also used a special potting soil made for cacti and succulents.

Here are step by step instructions on how to make a succulent garden.

Beautiful! I love the subtle shades of succulents, and the metallic container complements them perfectly. Good, clear directions as well.
