A Planter With A View

A repurposed cattle feeder provides a cozy enclosure for a trio of eclectic succulents against a backdrop a drought-tolerant planting.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

What is it? An old cattle feederWhat is it doing in its new life? Serving as a container for succulents.Requirements: Finding an old cattle feeder (or buying a new galvanized tub at a hardware store; it has a similar look and is very inexpensive), poking holes in the bottom, spreading some gravel, filling it with soil and adding plants.
Cattle feeder. These tin tubs may be too leaky to hold water for farm animals anymore, but they hold succulent minigardens very well.
