How fun, those impatiens are nice and bright. Now I see how you put it together and that you're using the chicken wire to hold the plants in place. You can also use garden netting as an anchor.

Just a few weeks for the plants to grow in and it'll be a great centerpiece for your garden.

You are off to a great start! Looks like it will work to me. Mother nature takes over now (plus watering by you of course).

That really turned out cute. It will look better soon....as the plants will grow with all that water and attention you give them!

The top and the back of the seat are planted with sedum which had been growing on my stone wall, as I was scooping it up I saw that it had attached it self to leaves, so I tucked the leaves into the chicken wire. I hope they take off. if not, there is way more where that came from,, lol
thanks everyone for the wonderful ideas that I have gotten from here, my husband now, just says,, "okay dear, what would you like ME to do?". whenever I come up with another project..

Thank you! I hope it works out!
I LOVE this place and the closer I get to retirement the more time I will have to play in my yard!
