{How to Create a Lovely Succulent Garden}

With spring around the corner and a pep in my step, I thought there would be no better time than to give my tips on creating a lovely succulent garden!

I don’t know at what point I fell in love with succulents, but I know one thing’s for sure: there’s no going back now, baby! Every{Succulent Selection 2} time I’m in Crate & Barrel or Z.

Then, as if I’m on a treasure hunt, I meander around the store to find them sprinkled about on various dining and end tables, shelves and display cases.

So one day when I was in Home Goods, I spotted this must-have chartreuse planter box…but what to do with it? My mind raced as I thought of all of the endless possibilities and ways I could creatively repurpose the piece over time.

So I bought it, resolving that I would make a lovely succulent garden!
