What you'll need:
We have two stumps at the top of our hill just off the driveway. They're too high to mow over, so the weeds tend to grow tall around them at a rapid pace. Instead of fighting them, I wanted to work with them to create a rustic country floral feature. I have ideas to add to the feature in the future, but for now, I was able to accomplish a simple yet rewarding place holder.
With the home we bought, we inherited many "rusty gold" treasures that can be re-purposed as we find spots for them. I dug the wheelbarrow I used out of one of our back buildings. Although it is missing its front wheel, it is a really solid piece. No wheel, no problem for this project. I actually preferred it that way. I placed the wheelbarrow where I wanted it and used rocks to angle it towards the road so the flowers are visible.
With $20 in my hand, I was able to buy a large bag of black gardening dirt along with three 8 inch chrysanthemum plants. Fall is just around the corner, so I thought these flowers were the best choice. I'll be able to add corn stalks and pumpkins around the feature when the time comes.
