The easiest way to have succulents in your garden is by planting them in various planters and placing them around it. All you’ll need are various succulents, planters and cacti soil. Now you will probably want your arrangements to look full, lush and beautiful but to achieve that you will need to use lots of succulents which are not very cheap. There is a way to get full succulent planters without using so many succulents and hurting your budget – just use succulent ground cover! They are perfect for adding softness and fullness to succulent planters.
3. Create your own succulent garden birdbath
You have probably noticed how expensive are all those little cute planters with succulents that are sold in different nurseries. Why spent a small fortune when you can make one on your own that is three times bigger and more effective. For this project an old, leaky concrete birdbath was used as a planter for different kinds of succulents and the final result was beautiful succulent garden which makes a great addition to any yard.
