I'm fighting the grass and weeds in the garden, trying to transform an established lawn into a vegetable garden...and frankly, failing. At this point, about 60% of my seedlings have sprouted and will hopefully grow unmolested. But it's a weekly battle to keep the weeds at bay, and one that is disheartening.
I needed a jolt of creative inspiration, a gardening success, to keep me feeling positive enough to soldier on. That's where The Gro Project comes in. It's a collection of fellow gardeners on Facebook who, with help from Miracle-Gro, are sharing their gardening DIY projects. Like Pinterest, with plants! Go ahead and follow them on Facebook and Pinterest to see the awesome things folks have come up with!

I was inspired by Miracle-Gro's expansive library of articles and videos to start my own project. I used Moisture Control Potting Mix mixed with gravel and Fedora's grandparents' composting topsoil, and a pretty secondhand pot...and some store-bought snapdragons. Then I layered some clear marbles over the soil...not enough to block the sun and rain, but enough to make a 3D effect. It isn't Sunset magazine, but it's pretty, deliberate, and a nice accent to the back stairs.
