It's only "incredibly easy" because you KNOW how you DID it! lol
In a humid State like Florida, you'd probably want the cans out of
direct sun (burn!) and away from heavy rains ... it IS most attractive & you get to replace the rusty tins easily with your
coffee consumption! Nice!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Danyelle Mathews added this to Succulents Juice Up Outdoor Gardens
If you're looking for a simple, inexpensive way to add succulents to an outdoor wall or fence, consider planting in tin cans.
Samantha Schoech added this to 10 Imaginative Garden Ideas
It's free (provided you drink a lot of coffee from cans), it's ecofriendly and it's cute in a funky, boho-cottage kind of way. Love it.
Becky Harris added this to Multipurpose Wonders: Tin Cans
Type of can: Coffee tinUse: Outdoor planterResult: A colorful vertical garden. I love the way these containers have all faded to different degrees. Tip: Drill holes in the bottom for good drainage.
Coffee cans. Different degrees of fading color make this weathered wall of metal coffee tins even more interesting.
Recycelt und günstigAlte Dosen zu bepflanzen und diese über- und nebeneinander an einer Wand zu befestigen ist die einfachste und günstigste Art, einen vertikalen Garten zu bauen. Auf diese Weise können Sie auch einen Kräutergarten in der Küche anlegen. Alternativ eignen sich Erdbeerkästen, Plastikflaschen oder Filzsäcke als Behälter. Kostenpunkt: wenige Groschen.

If you are looking for a container garden that will take up minimal room, consider a fireplace screen and vintage coffee cans (or whatever may be your favorite type). This mix of cans and pots is a great way to bring up succulents, as they typically grow to fit their containers!
