Planting ChairsThursday, August 26, 2010
There was an article in Southern Living about three or four years ago about planting a chair and since then I've been really wanting to try it. The whole project took less than 20 minutes.
Next, unroll a length of chicken wire over the open seat, push it down to make as deep a 'bowl' as will be necessary for your plants, and cut with tin snips. Take this smaller, more manageable piece of chicken wire, and further mold it around the open area:
Cut again with snips, and begin stapling the form along the outline of the chair:
Take the coco liner (this is great for keeping all the soil in but allowing for good drainage) and fit in the chair. The big folds will tell you where to cut small sections out so there is a bit of overlap but not too much. If you cut while the coco liner is in the chair, you'll see exactly how much to remove:
Next, add potting soil and plants, water, and it's all set!:
When I uploaded my pics to Flickr, I took a look to see other planted chairs and found several.
Love this one. And what about this!?
