I'm so excited to finally be able to share our moon garden with you. This project started back in December when I found a really lovely blue bench on clearance for an amazing price that I just couldn't pass up. I had the perfect spot in mind for it.
|Before: Weeds Over Concrete|
You can't tell from the picture above but there is actually a concrete pad under all those weeds. I'm not sure what the previous homeowners used it for but I knew it would be the perfect spot for a little garden room and of course, I was right.
|After: The Moon Garden|
The garden aspect of this new outdoor room is mostly potted plants, since you can't grow anything (except really stubborn weeds) in concrete. Keeping with the moon theme I chose white flowers such as Jasmine and Gardenia as well as plants with silver foilage like Licorice Plants.

|The Buddha Statue was a Homegoods find.|
I also planted a moonflower vine behind the bench to grow on the fence where I added some mirrored stars (former Christmas decorations). The metal table was yellow when I bought it on clearance, so I spray painted it blue. The throw pillow I designed myself (available at my Cabagelow Creations Shop).

I guess I could have stopped there but then my local home improvement store had a sale on concrete stepping stones. I used these to create a path to and from our new garden room.

That was a lot of work but I just couldn't call this project done until I had added some lighting. A few outdoor solar light fixtures (affiliate link) did the trick.

Then, finally, it was time to relax and enjoy our new moon garden.

I would like to dedicate this post to the memory of our neighbor Irving. I will miss our gardening chats.
Thank you for reading. Your comments are always appreciated.
