Succulents in my bird bath garden 

I love succulent planters!

I'm tired of cleaning and filling this bird bath.  I made it into a succulent planter!  

A layer of stones will help 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 perennials.  I'm in zone 5 Wisconsin.

Even with strong storms, the succulent garden has been fine.

Rocks do help, but if there is lots of rain, you need to tip & drain the water.
