DIY: Succulents Table

April 9, 2017

Admired recently: a clever DIY project from Matti and Megan, the self-proclaimed “plant nerds” of Far Out Flora.

With a few key ingredients (salvaged table legs, a used shipping pallet, and a collection of succulents) and a bit of elbow grease, this duo created an outdoor table that doubles as a mini succulent garden. For more details, visit Matti and Megan’s blog, Far Out Flora.

Above: Their primary supplies were an old table (to salvage the legs) and used shipping pallets.

Above: The boards laid on top of the frame before attaching, to ensure proper fit and sizing.

Above: Prior to planting, small holes were drilled in the bottom of the planting bed for drainage. The majority of the succulents are varieties of Sempervivum, Sedum, and a hint of Orostachys iwarenge, planted in fast-draining cactus mix.

Above: The finished product provides a permanent outdoor dining centerpiece.
