Succulents in my bird bath garden 

I love creating interesting planters with succulents! 

In the three years that I've had it, I have not seen a single bird have a bath in it.  

First, I added a layer of stones. as it  has no drainage and I was hoping that the stones would be enough to keep the water from the roots of the succulents.

Then I just added some succulent/cactus potting soil and mounded it a bit.

The succulents used are all perennial.  All of them, except one came from my yard.

Even with bad storms the succulent garden hasn't been washed out in any way.

Drainage is important!  Since there wasn't any, I used a layer of rocks to help keep the roots dry.
