We all know how easy it is to maintain succulents. They have a unique capacity to store water, so it is not necessary to water them very often. That makes them perfect for growing indoors or for an outdoor garden if you live in a warm climate. It really does not matter if there is a shortage of rainfall in your area or not, succulents grow the same in deserts as in coastal places. They are very popular to grow in containers because it is easy to create very beautiful compositions with coarse plants. In addition you can add a lot of things in these containers like pieces of wood and stones to make a very nice and interesting succulent garden.
When we grow the succulents outdoors we have to remember two things, which need a lot of light and little water. Irrigation should be spaced enough to allow the substrate to dry almost completely. In terms of light we can place them in full sun or much better with some shade, especially the green succulents, since these when they receive a lot of sun directly tend to lose that green tone and instead turn to a reddish or brown .
For indoor cultivation, we must try to follow these two principles outlined above. Light and little water are still the premises for growing succulents outdoors. We could add that they are not located in places with drafts or too close to heat sources.
The combinations of basic materials, stone, wood and metal along with the succulents is always synonymous with success. This fantastic frame is ideal for this vertical garden.
Frames are a nice way to grow succulents to make a vertical garden. It is an important project, especially if the size is large, which will require the collaboration of a professional.
But there are endless small projects and ideas that we can carry out ourselves. And they can serve both for exterior and interior as these planters-bottles of wine.
Cement or concrete containers are also a great complement for succulents. A composition of succulents like the one we see here fits well in any garden, patio or terrace.
Another very interesting trend is to reuse old objects as containers for our small garden of succulents.
We can find a large number of projects to create vertical gardens of succulents with recycled materials. From pallets there are many.
But you can also use many other objects and materials. The old doors and windows are another fantastic frame.
And there are ideas as simple as this, surely we all have some empty pots. A simple idea that is very decorative.
Emptying trunks and branches to use as planters for our succulents is another very aesthetic solution.
Zinc containers are also a good idea. The contrast of the succulents with the metal is always nice, especially those that are a gray-green color.
To little that we look in our storage room or in the garage sure that we found thousand and one objects that we do not use already and that can serve us to create a beautiful garden of succulents.
Succulents offer so many possibilities that we would never finish. Succulent balls or hanging baskets are a good example of this.
But succulents can also serve us even without a container. Cultivated directly on the ground they also offer us many possibilities. This mosaic that we see here is really spectacular.
In a garden xeriscape the succulents will be felt in their natural space and we can count on an enormous number of possibilities to decorate the garden.
This vertical garden made with old drainage channels can serve as a separator of environments. The succulents also allow us to improve the design of our garden, patio or terrace.
An old fountain or any object that is no longer used can be a great container to install a succulent garden.
Even some old smart shoes like these. Logically we will last longer if we put them inside the house.
Indoors we can assemble a garden of succulents in almost any object. Pots, clay pots or any similar object is worth it.
Even ceramic bowls and cups are a good choice. Indoors there is a large field in the creation of mini succulent gardens that can be prepared from a cup of coffee to a tureen.
