Summer Project //Cinder Blocks + Plants

So…..This post is for my mom, since she was asking what I have been up to in the yard lately…


I saw this project in pinterest a while back and thought, “Hey, I have a bunch of those hanging around in the yard not doing anything…”


I would like to preface this by saying that the above wall is a lot more “chic”  than mine, but that’s OK.  I was going for cheap & chic!

So…we had an eyesore right next to the entrance to our yard:

We have always hated it, so I decided to do something about it.  I cleared away all of those rocks and leveled it in front of the fence:

Then I hauled all of the cinder blocks I could find in our yard up front.  I arranged and re-arranged about 20 times.

I went to Home Depot and bought 8 additional blocks to finish the wall.  I scrounged around the property for some stuff to transplant and bought a few new plants to add to it.  This is how it turned out:

  1. WOW – I love this! Seems like all we have time for in our yard is cleaning up dog poop! Speaking of dogs, is the beauty in the photo a new “baby”??? What a nice looking dog.



  2. This is amazing:) I made a succulent box after visiting the Big Sur Bakery and taking pictures of their creation. I love actually following through:) xo.
