Excited to show you a simple Whiskey Barrel planter project for your patio or garden for under $300 at Lowes who has the best prices to get you ready for Spring. #lowespartner #sponsored . I've partnered up with @loweshomeimprovement to break down this this DIY Whiskey Barrel Planter project that looks pro but is easy enough for a beginner to take on. Swipe right through the images to see my step by step process, and create your own beautiful planter that will last for years to come.
Step 1: Drill 4-5 holes in the bottom of whiskey barrel using a 1" drill bit. These holes will provide enough drainage to keep your planter from rotting and keep them healthy for years to come!
Step 2: Install (4) swiveling caster wheels. Once planted with potting soil, gravel for drainage and plants your Whiskey Barrel will be heavy and the caster wheels will make it easier to move around and keep the Whiskey Barrel off the ground.
Step 3: Install weed fabric from Sta-Green to cover your drainage holes and fill with 3-4" of pea gravel. The fabric will serve as a filter and not allow gravel or dirt to leave the barrel while promoting proper drainage.
Step 4: Plant Olive tree and fill with @miraclegro organic planter mix. This is a great all around planter mix for just about any purpose. I like it for this project as it is great for both trees and edible plants like strawberries.
Step 5: Install @monrovia plants Festuca Elijah Blue. These are one of my favorite plants to incorporate within my landscapes and planter projects.
Step 6: Install @bonnieplants Sequoia strawberries. I recommend planting the Strawberries close to the edge of your Whiskey Barrel, so that they will grow over the side and create a nice color contrast to the side of the Whiskey Barrel
Step 7: Place in a sunny spot on your patio and enjoy!
