How to Build and Plant a Succulent Garden

Succulent Gardens require very little water and almost no maintenance. And they can be gorgeous!
Succulent Gardens are easy to create and super easy to care for.
We used PVC pipe and cut it at an angle
Spray painted with stone paint
Fill with pea gravel for drainage and soil. Then planted the succulents.
Some of the plants were also planted in the ground.
Since there were some questions about Indoor Succulent Gardens, I thought I would add a photo of the one we created for indoors. They do great indoors.

    I love this and how inexpensive! How do you move it if it has no bottom or is it stationery only? Thanks for posting this great project.

      How does the stone paint hold up outside? the rust-oleum site specifies this as indoor use only.

    Do succulent plants need a lot of direct sunlight. I’m primarily in shade

    Love this idea going to do this but we are going to paint them to match our home. Think that will be cute also.
