crumple soda cans and newspaper to fill the bottom. Then it will not be too heavy if you need to move it. -PHH

I've used old crates, glass bottles, and old pots to create a homemade garden. I simply love it!
Great purplestars, This is very nice idea to make a garden.........well done..!!
The house my father grew up in was on a corner lot and had no fence around it. My grandfather got a whole lot of cinder blocks and lined them up around where you'd normally see a fence. He then filled them with the kind of flowers that rebloom every year. After he retired he would be out there every morning pruning them. And if any neighborhood kids ruined on, he'd make them replant another. He was very proud of his flower "garden" and it made the house look beautiful.
I know this has nothing to do with the thread I also had a father that took a whole lot of pride in his yard. I grew up also on a corner lot so my father planted a hedge using roses. I am sorry it just brought up some child hood memories.
I use fabric for everything
