This is an easy guide to planting a big pot on the sidewalk in front of your home. It's designed for people who know next to nothing about gardening.
Adding flowers and plants to your sidewalk is an item on Neighbors Project's Neighbors Checklist
, and is a guiding principle of Neighborly Home Design
. I don't know about you, but whenever I walk down blocks with great sidewalk flowers, I can't help but think, "I wish my block looked like that." But I've been too lazy to actually do something about it until circumstances forced the issue: some friends needed to get rid of their big pot because they're moving. Now that I'm done, I have to say that this project was really fun. I wish I had done it sooner. And yes, I did actually meet some of my neighbors in the time I was out doing this project.
To do this Instructable you'll need:
-1.5 bags of potting soil (aka, big bags of dirt)
-Pot (big and heavy)
