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.

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

      No they do not. I have a garden in a plastic dish and it sits on my porch with no direct sun. It is doing great

    How does the stone paint hold up outside? The Rustoleum site specifies this as indoor use only?

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

    will give it a whirl. Like the idea that the plants are pretty and very easy to take care of. Have hanging baskets in front of my house and a LOT of SUN. They should work great there. Also around 2 trees where the sprinklers don't hit real good.
