DIY Mini Succulent Garden (in a Tree Stump)

How To Repurpose A Tree Stump To Create A Mini Succulent Garden.

– Cement, Rapid Set – Bucket for mixing – Bucket of water – Durable nitrile gloves

Materials Needed:

Step 1. Hollow Out The Tree Stump

Scoop out the dirt, powdered wood and bark from inside.

Step 2. Create Drainage For The Succulent Garden

Cut a large straw into 3 or 4 pieces and place them at the low points in the bottom of the hollowed stump. 

Step 3. Prepare The Stump For The Cement

If I had landscape fabric on hand, I would have laid that down prior to pouring the cement. So I recommend doing that first, then cut holes to fit over the straws.

Step 4. Mix And Cast The Cement

Mix the cement to the consistency of a thick milkshake. I poured some in the hole and then spread it around with my gloved hand.

Step 5. Prepare The Garden Bed

Once the cement has cured, you can begin layering the garden materials for the mini succulent garden.
