First, some tall, squarish terracotta pots were spray-painted silver, to complement the decor of the house. Next, summer grass (Digitaria sanguinalis) growing in the paving was removed. (Note: summer grass grows through the warmer months and produces little seed heads, which are great to feed to budgies, canaries and finches.) Finally, the silver pots were placed on either side of the front door, filled with potting mix and planted with grassy plants.
