|Vertical succulent garden by Vera Devera (c) 2012|
If you're planning a wedding with succulents, I'm sure you've seen lots of inspiration for vertical succulent gardens. I'm hosting my own birthday party in a couple of weeks and that has motivated me to get our backyard in shape.
First thing on my list: salvage a pallet and turn it into a kickass garden. And that's just what I did!
- 1 salvaged pallet (i.e., rescue an abandoned pallet off the street, usually outside a warehouse or store)
- Upholstery staple gun
- 3 cubic feet of soil
- Lots of plants
This is a great backdrop not only in your backyard, but I can see it used as an escort card display, especially for a garden wedding. The cards can be "sown" into the soil with wooden seedling markers Or it can be a cool architectural feature as part of the setting the scene for your succulent-themed wedding.
