what to do with a big metal box? We have one (partly buried) and about to get another bigger one to act as a nut dryer. So do you cover them with plants, paint them, or learn to enjoy their brute industrial aesthetic?
owned this lovely red shipping container, I would go to Walmart, buy black, green and brown spray paint and have a fun day learning to paint camouflage.

I was wondering where to purchase the low, round, clear containers?

can find plant supports to buy in all sorts of colors, but you can also paint the traditional wood ones (and change the color to match your gardening mood every year). Tip: If you're growing berries near a walkway or door, look for thornless berries.

Wall of plants how did they do it???
Native plants grow in a living wall designed by Rana Creek on the garage exterior. Bryce Parker garage doors and Il Fanale sconces add to the building's contemporary industrial look.
something oh so appealing about this expansive ‘wall hedge’. Not only does the green foliage help to camouflage a blot-on-the-landscape structure, the planting has a very natural, untamed quality to it, too.
