You don’t need much to create this interesting eclectic design. Just choose the small-sized succulent plant of your liking, have on hand several rectangular or whatever shaped plastic containers of similar size and fill with colored gravel, or sand, of whatever color you choose. Your plants can set a single color scheme or they can be arranged in a multi-color scheme. If you add a pearl or tiny seashell to each container, then you’ll be adding a bit of charm as well. Now, simply arrange your display on a garden bed of whatever kind, or a wooden pallet, and you’ve made a charming succulent garden arrangement.

An old garden watering can, or large canister filled with overflowing succulent flowers, makes one interesting piece in your garden. If your garden’s theme is rustic in nature, this display goes perfectly on an old table or wooden bench. Generous strands of “Silver Falls” Dichondra or another hanging species of the succulent family gives the visual effect of water that flows over from inside the canister or garden can. Naturally, you may opt to leave the canister or garden can just as it is, or you may decide to paint it before planting with brightly colored designs.

Particularly suited for a medium-sized space in a backyard, this arrangement is great for having several paths leading to glass containers. Although this particular scene has only three glass decanters, more can be easily added to make a perfect “sea of glass.” Large-sized rounded river stones form one backdrop, and larger sized coral rocks form other backdrops leading to your glass-accented decor. What plants to insert? Well, basically anything in the cactus or succulent family will do. Blue glass jars and blue colored stones enhance the look of a glassy sea.
