Succulents are quite eye-catching because of their unusual color and texture and you can add some to beautify the patio, balcony or the backyard. You can grow them in variety of planters, from typical ones that can be found in the stores to some unique ones that can make a statement. You can easily repurpose versatile items and turn them into beautiful planters. Some such items can be wood logs, so today we are bringing to you several Succulent Gardens In Hollowed Out Logs that may get you inspired to make some such planters too.
Making a planter out of log, won’t cost you anything, since you will just need to use this natural material and turn it into a display for plants. There are many types of tree logs with different textures to work with. The twisted ones or logs with different shapes can be more eye-catching. In order to plant succulents in a log you should start with a crack that is somewhat towards the middle of the wood. Take a gouge tool to dig it out and thus create more space for the plants. Fill it with potting soil and then choose how you will arrange the succulents in order to create a dramatic combo of colors and shapes. For instance, you can go for a rosette, a sliver, a spike, a green and a purple. Put in the bigger ones first and then tuck the little ones around the edge. And of course, no need to leave some space to grow, because in case they make babies, you can simply pop them out and repot. The succulents don’t have strong roots, so you can easily rearrange them.
