When we moved, we inherited a paved and gravelled front garden with no plants. We bought the planter to brighten it up until we have a chance in the Spring to change it. It has certainly done the job. Planted with winter pansies and cyclamen and together with some pots, it has helped to make the garden look cared for. I have planted small bulbs to come up in the Spring. The planter would be ideal to give some planting area to a back yard. For example, it would make a lovely herb garden.
Even when we have the garden changed, it will still have pride of place as it has received many compliments from passers by! It arrived very quickly and was easy to put together. It needed quite a lot of potting compost and it is a very basic design but it does the job and we are very pleased with it.
