Usually wheelbarrows carry dirt and flowers to be dropped off.
But there’s a new garden trend of using wheel barrows as permanent flower planters and gardens.
It’s kind of a cool idea. The wheelbarrow fits in nicely as a garden sculpture.
While I wouldn’t use a new wheelbarrow for this, it’s a great way to get more use out of an older wheelbarrow.
Types of wheelbarrows you can use:
- Decorative wood wheelbarrow
- Old metal wheelbarrow
- Brand, spanking new wheelbarrow
- In our gallery below you’ll see all types.
Other than garden benches, using a wheelbarrow is my favorite decorative garden object because when fully planted it looks so natural within the garden yet, is highly functional and offers a dynamic element to the garden.
Also, a wheelbarrow can serve as a stand-alone mini garden on patios, decks or in the yard.
If you like the rustic landscaping look, a wheelbarrow is one way to achieve that.
