Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: Don't throw out half empty paint cans. Instead, use the paint to create one-of-a-kind planters that will add a whimsical touch to your porch. Clay pots, tin cans, and even a 5 gallon bucket can be painted with stripes, polka dots, zigzags, or whatever and filled with plants. For a coordinated look, limit your palette to just two or three colors, and use different painting techniques to give them interest.
