Container gardens are the perfect way to easily add pretty flowers and fresh herbs to your outdoor space. But if you really want to get creative and inject some personality into your yard, try using an old wagon to hold your greenery.

We came across this photo from Wicker Paradise and instantly fell in love with how practical yet whimsical this ideas was. And it's super easy to recreate. All you have to do is get some soil and your favorite flowers and get to work. You can plant directly into the wagon or group several flower pots inside -- just be sure that the wagon has a hole in the bottom so it can drain water properly.
