Whiskey Barrel Planter! I wanted to make the mailbox area look pretty, but didnt want the same old flowerbed so this is what I came up with.....removed the bottom of the barrel filled it halfway with soil planted some (Tulip Bulbs for next spring) and then planted the rest of the Fall Plants -Mum, ornamental pepper, Ornamental Cabbage Kale, ivy, pansy and Red Fountain Grass. lots of color and beauty! ( Oh yeah a solar lanter for light).
Our mailbox recreated. It's no longer leaning and plain. Everything you see here can be purchased at Lowes. You can get a basic mailbox post or upgrade to the gothic style post for a $3 difference. (We chose the gothic style. What makes them different is the decorative notch between the flower pot and mailbox itself.) classic Mums for Fall.
