Are you looking for an easy DIY project to celebrate Fall? Do you enjoy gardening? Then keep reading.
The weather here in the Midwest has been absolutely gorgeous! So, I've been using my time wisely outdoors splitting and transplanting plants around my yard.
I have these cement bricks lined up along the edge of the sidewalk in an effort to prevent my dogs from jumping off the ledge. I usually plant a spring flower in them, but this year I didn't. Truthfully, they've sat empty for a couple of years. The last time I used them was here.
This week I decided to plant some mums in them. Perfect for Fall and you can't go wrong with mums. Instead of buying additional dirt, I recycled some from a planter that was no longer in use.
I lined up where I wanted each plant to go.
Using a garden trowel, I loosened the dirt that was left in the bricks. After placing the mum in each spot I added some additional dirt as needed. Tip: Give them a good drink of water when your done.
I LOVE HOW THEY TURNED OUT!
The boys watched from start to finish. I guess you could say this is there smile of approval.
