I thought this was such a clever idea!: You know how you have a drainage hole in the bottom of your plant container?:

Well, to keep the soil from seeping from the container’s drainage hole and creating a mess on your walls and steps, place a piece of fine screen over the hole before filling with soil:

That will help keep in the soil instead of running out the bottom every time you water.

Pretty smart idea, don’t you agree? I read this idea in a Proven Winner catalog. I am so ready to start working outdoors! How about you?

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hi Kelly,

    I also read to use a coffee filter in the bottom of a pot to keep the soil in and allow the water drain.

    Love the first photo with all those gorgeous pots of flowers and greenery behind it!
