Adding spilled planters to your garden can give unique characteristics to your flower beds without the extensive work that goes into maintaining water structures. For those who are interested in a conventional, country look, barrels or spilled milk cans can be used. If you are going for a spilled planter that has a sleeker style, a terra cotta planter can be used with petunias to create a look that slowly narrows down into a single bulb.
- By placing a terra cotta planter in an established planting bed you can create a vision that displays partially buried petunias or other small flowers.
- An old upended barrel gives a rustic, country look and goes great with a flower bed that is well maintained in terms of landscaping.
- A waterfall urn can be built by incorporating blue and purple flowers into the spilled aesthetic, creating a design that mimics a waterfall.
“The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating your own spilled flower garden, since you can choose to emulate an existing natural structure, or simply create one straight from your imagination.”
