For as long as we can remember, container gardens made from watering troughs have stolen our heart. It doesn't matter how many newfangled self-watering products hit the market, there's just something about their industrial look when combined with beautiful plants that gets us every time. These tubs can be found at your local farm and feed store. We found these for $75 at Do It Best, though we're sure there's a store near you that you might find a better price break on.
Not only do they raise the height of your garden, but they'll keep their looks for years to come. If you could create a raised bed, or container garden in anything you wish, what would your ultimate choice be?
