Gardening on your patio or deck creates an extension of your home. You can create an outdoor area with comfort and privacy. I have been “pot” gardening for more years than I can remember and I never grow tired of it.
Last year I used stacked cement building blocks with a plant in each hole. Sadly no pictures but it was truly beautiful. Next summer I plan to expand and add another corner of the patio.
There are some real advantages to using cement blocks – the openings are just perfect for one plant. I found that you can buy a 6 pak of flowers and put one or two in each hole. The blocks are stacked so I filled the holes with crumpled newspaper leaving about a six to eight inch opening for the potting soil and the plant. Need I mention that you can have a beautiful plant area for a low price.
