The first picture shows a planter made from old gutters that have been capped on each side and planted with herbs. Each is attached to another to create a hanging planter which is a good way for small areas or balconies. The second picture is a planter made from a hollowed out log (made with a chainsaw) and planted with lots of color which is great against the earthy tones of the log itself.
