DIY is more fun with a friend. Our Dual DIY series pairs two bloggers together on one project. Here, The Home Depot’s Caroline Inge teams up with Whitney Curtis of The Curtis Casa to create a cactus and succulent garden in a cool copper container Caroline acquired. They shared some great tips on decorating and container gardening. We have a list of the materials they used, and we’ve added a very cool video of Caroline and Whitney working on this DIY succulent garden project.
Whitney: I love planting succulent containers, they are such an easy way to add plant life to your home, without all the responsibility. Don’t worry about forgetting to water every once in awhile, they’ll be just fine!
Caroline: I’ve tried growing a few small succulents before, but I’ve never had any luck with them. After chatting with you about it while we were shopping, I learned that one of the first things I did wrong was that I purchased the wrong varieties!
