Very creative! Did you drill holes in the bottom of the canoe?

I Like! Your perennials are large!

Love it! I am so jealous of creative people... I feel like I am "thinking outside the box" when I plant in HOS's in circles instead of rows!!!!!! That canoe is going to look so cool. Please take "progress photos" to share. I am hoping you plant plants that cascade a bit on the edges.

I love the idea. Don't forget the dirt is going to settle, so you may need to make the level a little higher. Can't wait to see pictures of it mature.

Very cool! And a great way to make yourself extra garden space.

Thanks everybody - I did drill holes in the bottom with my dremel; was quite easy. I also put the soil in, watered it, and then topped it off, so hopefully not too much more settling. The plants around the edges; should hopefully cascade over.. eventually! I was really excited about this one!

The Canoe is finished - pictures updated with details on the plants. The details are listed on the last few plants with the canoe divided into 3rd's. Not sure how it will end up looking; but I was real excited to finish - and.. excited :)
