DIY: Garden Candle Lighting

garden candle lighting

Here is the recipe:

Tapered candles
Bamboo poles
Terracotta Pot

Combine together in the most obvious way — and ta-dah! — beautiful garden lighting.  Just make sure you place it somewhere that you don’t mind wax drips — like I am thinking maybe over gravel or pebbled areas and certainly not on the deck or the stone patio.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    My kids really love container gardening and i’m a real fan, i’d like to think that one day our society will move back to sustainable food growth instead of the current mass market farming which is really destructive for the environment.
