Hubby made this for me a few years ago. He drilled holes and added 3 redwood legs. I added sedums and let it go. Works perfectly, drains well. Too much green so I added some colored ones.

I think it looks great, Linda. The colored ones should fill in a bit too.

Looks wonderful, Linda. It has filled in well and those colored sedums really light it up. I love it! Using the hard hat for a container was a good idea. Thumbs up

I agree. It looks great. It is amazing how fast that has filled in. Love the accent colors and different leaf shapes and textures.
