Add bold lashings of vibrancy to your space – or someone else’s – with these bright mini gardens.
Bright concrete block mini gardens
You will need: Concrete breeze blocks (from a DIY store), selection of Resene test pots, paintbrushes, water (for washing brushes), masking tape, newspaper (to protect your work surface), selection of succulents, weed mat, ordinary garden soil with stones for drainage.
Paint tips: Use Resene Blackboard Paint and then you can write the plant name in chalk onto each block to help you remember which is which. When choosing colours, it’s generally best to avoid light colours as they will tend to show up marks sooner.
For extra shimmer and shine, use a Resene FX Metallic testpot for details.
How does it look: The designs are as varied as your imagination. We would love to see how your painted block gardens turn out.
Note: If you need to move the gardens, remember to put your hands underneath, where the hole is, to stop the weed mat, plants and soil falling out.
