It is always fun when a project involves power tools.
Here you have a wonderful vintage wheelbarrow from the 50’s. That is full of character as well as rust. What a great shape! America made tools to last back then!
Looking at it from above, you can tell it is rather shallow.
I added several drain holes.
Then a layer of pea gravel went in to the wheelbarrow.
Next, I place in potting soil.
Here we have the view from above.
This photo was taken today and as you can see the caladiums are coming up.
I decide to add a few plants of Dwarf Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon japonicas ‘Nana’).
In a few weeks it will look even better, when the plants have filled in a little more.
Our little piece of family history…I’m enjoying seeing it with purpose again.
