We love small space container gardening in the Curbly neighborhood. Whether they're full of flowers, herbs, or vegetables, we don't care. Just so long as they're clever, good looking, practical and DIYable, which all of these ideas are.
If you love raised beds and have just a wee bit of hand tool skills, this old farm table converted into a lettuce garden is about the slickest gardening upcycle ever. Find more details at Savvy Gardening.
A raised stepped garden made out of stair risers and window boxes is a bit of genius as well.
A unique take on the hanging pot is this...well, let's call it a flower pot swing garden. Lumber (perhaps from a pallet?), holes, pots, rope, done.
This vertical number was actually an IKEA hack using 5 Bjurön plant pots and 2 boards. Read the deets over at IKEA Hackers.
We've also seen this idea before too, but Erika's take on the herb-garden-on-a-stick is much more delicate-looking which adds to its whimsy. Click here to see how she made it.
Roeshel gooses the whimsy angle even higher with her chandelier planter. Delightful, no?? Yes, and you know it. Here's a link to the tutorial.
This idea from the Unsophisticook couldn't be easier. It's a galvanized utensil caddy turned planter. The handy handle means it's portable, which in itself is pretty great. Move inside to harvest, move to a sunnier location...you get the idea. One of these caddies was used for the project, but this one would be cool tool.
And, finally, Jen's great upcycle idea using an old, double-sided washtub (a salvaged double, or even single, laundry sink could work too). I'm taken with how, even though it's a vintage item, it looks totally fresh.
