{www.westcoastgardens.ca}Who says gardening is all work and no play? Here we've incorporated elements in a large container garden that were perfect for some dinosaur friends to inhabit. Adding a few miniature creatures is a fun way to get kids excited about your container gardens and show your playful side. This miniature garden landscape starts off with an upside down pot, perfect to create a small island amid the soil layer where a strong basin of water can sit without tipping. We chose large granite style rocks that resembled jurassic mountains and placed them in the middle. Small miniature trees and bushes added a forest feeling, while succulents dotted the landscape with a definite «stone age» look. Speaking of stones...you might notice we added quite a few different sized varieties! Using large, medium and small stones and gravel create a textured look that is much more natural. The river rocks smooth surface contrast nicely against the sharper edges of the large rocks. Choose some dinosaur friends to take for a spin in your new Dinosaur Garden!----Looking for more ideas about gardening with kids?
