Isn't "Spill Garden" the cutest term? It entails half burying a pail, pot or random container, mounding the soil in front of it and planting flowers which will appear to "spill" forth. Just look:
This one looks so casual but you know a lot of work went into it - look at that grass! Grass loves growing and interfering
I forget how colorful pansies can be
Wave petunias are so perfect for this
This looks like its part of a rock garden
I'd ditch the host and maybe make the grass closer to the container but its a lovely composition
Does the planter appear to be set in stone? This looks like a professional installation.
This one is definitely in a commercial setting.
Aren't this pot's colors lovely? I hadn't considered a ground cover in a spill pot but it seems like a perfect pairing.
This installation is in Dubai and probably costs more than our house.
I wouldn't like to be the mulcher on this project!
and a last one.
I'd like to find a place for a spill garden in my life. Maintaining it could be incredibly zen or anxiety provoking. Its a quirker!
