Jan Feamster's Old Wall Fountain

Recycle Containers

This wall planter illustrates the impact of colorful foliage and texture.

Jan Feamster, a garden designer in Mooresville, North Carolina, has found a new use for her old wall fountain. Tired of having pump and maintenance problems, she transformed the former water feature into a wonderful wall planter.

She has planted the wide, shallow pocket with low-maintenance caladiums, impatiens, 'Gold 'n' Pearls' bacopa, and variegated sweet flag. Because this unconventional container does not have a drainage hole, Jan simply waters the plants sparingly whenever they require a drink.
