We love gardening with antiques! There are so many innovative and fun ways to bring the fabulous worlds of gardening and antiques together. You can add antiques to your outdoor space or integrate a mini garden into an antique. This design idea is great for adding a vintage touch to your porch, front or back yard. As our gardening season gets underway, here's a few inspirational ideas.
Wheelbarrow Planters & Goat Cart Gardens
Whether standing alone or integrated into your landscaping, wheelbarrow planters and goat cart gardens are absolutely stunning. It's almost as if they were made to be filled with flowers! Once you find a great piece, it's quite simple to plant it and add it to your garden. If you're looking for a wheelbarrow, remember that it doesn't need to be perfect. A rusty wheelbarrow adds lots of charm and patina to your garden!
Iron Planters and Galvanized Olive Buckets
Iron planters and galvanized olive buckets are perfect if you are limited on space or want to start with something small. Just add a plant for a dramatic boost to your decor.
Antique Garden Containers
When gardening with antiques, often unexpected containers make for the most beautiful planters. We love the look of wooden crates filled with flowers or this creative bucket on a pulley.
If you want to go with something really impactful, add a vintage bicycle to your garden. Lean it up against a fence and add flowers to the bicycle basket. This idea is so whimsical and fun.
Come visit us in store if you want to add an antique to your garden. We have a great selection of planters and containers, watering cans, galvanized olive buckets, wooden rakes and shovels, goat carts and wheelbarrows. Happy Gardening!
