Turn old items into cool containers
We've seen it all: repurposed shelves, bikes, baskets, wagons and chairs. Creating a one-of-a-kind decorative container adds interest to a garden and spotlights your favourite perrenials.
Get this look: Try geraniums with ivy, black-eyed Susan vines, or tuberous begonias for shade. These plants will help guide your eye rather then leaving it to wildly jump around. “Like images on a page, you want the eye to start at one place, before being guided to each of the different elements,” says Lee Valley Tools gardening expert Peg Brule.
