Before and After Succulent Dish Gardens

 

Many of the projects illustrated on this page show the transformation of objects in our lives that have outlived their original design purposes. Succulents have a way of bringing new life to items that would otherwise create cluttered eyesores in our homes or go unnecessarily to a landfill.

 

 

This 1947-1954 Chevy Grill was turned upside down and backed with plastic board to create soil reservoirs for the installation of succulents. Wait for it...

1947-1954 Chevy Grill with a new life!

Da da! Here it is, in all its succulent glory.

New Life bursting with succulents!

The old mailbox is currently displayed on the ground next to the new mailbox with a cheery new message.

This poolside planted pot went from sad to spectacular in its full sun exposure. This was achieved by replacing the tired Chrysanthemum with a variety of sun-loving succulents pulled from multiple containers scattered around the property that had no visual appeal on their own. Now the pot shouts with glee to “Look at Me!”.
