After you have planted add a small solar light that will provide the ambient lighting at night.
A rusty, crusty lanter with broken glass can add beauty to your garden!
Clean up the metsl with a paste wax. Apply wax then buff with a clean white rag.
Pop the top and pull the glass forward.
Add rocks to the bottom for drainage.
Layer with moss. Great for color.
Next layer in the soil then plant your succulents. I also add some moss and rocks on the top after planting for extra texture.
Just hanging out in the ivy!

Old lanterns are in abundant supply and a very lovely way to add ambient lighting to your garden path!
