Adding A Little Color

This is a pretty simple project to add a little color to the Cottage and also create a cover for the water tank. It came out so well, I also posted two pallets on either side of my deck. Here is what was required:

A couple of pallets (you should be able to get these for free as most large stores have to pay to have them taken away)
Soil, you can use what you have on hand or buy potting mix (it would take about 4 bags per pallet)
Some sort of back coverings, I had some industrial grade ground cover available
Here is what is looks like -

I would say it took me about an hour per pallet. The plants all seem to have taken well the to process and seem to be thriving. They were healthy when I bought them and all seem to have new growth and are coming out with new flowers. So far so good, now I need to come up with a plan to cover my wheels from sun exposure.

In case you are wondering why I have a bunch of black tarp on the ground, I am trying to knock down the weeds and then will cover the area with some other covering (TBD).
