Front Porch Planters for Our Pergola

2 Materials
1 Hour
Ever since we added a pergola to the front of our farmhouse it has been screaming for a vine! Who builds a pergola without something to climb up it? We finally got our act together and have 2 stone front porch planters for our pergola and I can’t wait to share them with you guys!
While l was shopping for plants at Lowes I stumbled upon these monster concrete planters.    I grabbed 2 strong employees and all 3 of us loaded 2 of them into my car along with a cartful of plants and potting soil.
I grabbed some rocks leftover from our back patio renovation and filled the pots approximately 6 inches with some stones to help with drainage. I also added some landscape fabric to keep the dirt from falling down into the stones.
After the potting soil was added I carefully planted a climbing hydrangea vine along with a boxwood shrub.
I loved the look of our new planters so much that it inspired me to decorate our front porch for fall. I added the kids pumpkins to each planter along with some more pumpkins and a pumpkin pillow to our front porch bench.
I absolutely love the look of our new front porch planters.  I can’t wait to watch our new vine grow over our pergola for years to come.  To see more of our front porch decorated for Fall. Check it out by clicking on the blog link below.
