Garden designer Laura Eubanks ( shows how to create a “mosaic-like” pocket garden of succulents, from start to finish. Laura’s helpful tips include how she shops for succulents (she “counts heads”), and how she takes cuttings and plants them—resulting in a colorful, eye-catching and harmonious composition perfect for small gardens. Although an in-ground garden like this is best for a mild, frost-free climate, many of Laura’s ideas will apply to succulent container compositions that need to be overwintered indoors. Producer and garden photojournalist Debra Lee Baldwin is the author of three books about using succulent plants in gardens and containers: Designing with Succulents, Succulent Container Gardens, and Succulents Simplified. Filmed in a private garden in Rancho Bernardo, CA. Size of the pocket garden shown in the video is approximately 9 square feet. Want to learn more about using these lovely, low-maintenance plants like the pros do? Debra Lee Baldwin now offers a 3-hour, 7-lesson online class: Stunning Succulent Arrangements.

    id love to see if theres any updates. i know its years later though, one can wish. i just recently moved to central texas from south texas and was sad when i realized i cant have succulent gardens year round because of the frost during fall and winter, some even in spring. my heart cried a little, especially when i saw how beautiful this turned out!

    Absolutely gorgeous! For decades I have wanted to recreate the mass plantings of succulents that drape the landscape in CAL. My most favorite thing to do while visiting is go for a walk by myself around some random neighborhood searching for succulents. Its better for me to do that alone because I tend to forget I am right in the middle of a conversation, stop and stare in awe while the other person keeps on walking..and talking. Obviously I love succulents but I am hesitant to put them in the ground since its such a harsh environment here in the desert of Southeastern Arizona. We live in a cabin on 8 acres out in the desert which has a little private mountain covered with all kinds of cactus & desert shrubs. I am turning it into one massive wildflower/vegetable garden. I want it to look like it is overflowing with life, literally pouring down the sides and flowing into our valley mesquite food forest. When we moved here the whole property was covered in tumbleweeds. Most of the 200+ mesquite trees and shrubs were way overgrown and half dead. My boyfriend and I have worked very hard over the last year to clean it up but now its time to make it beautiful. After watching many of your awesome videos I think I am finally ready to take the plunge and make my dreams come true..I just decided on the perfect spot to showcase my little collection of succulents..Ohh yahh its happening, more like its happening right now..I wish I could just show you what you have inspired me to would love it, I hope.

    I filled my Home Depot/Lowe's basket with nothing but succulents in the succulent garden section. Lo and behold…that very evening (during our nightly walk after dinner) I saw one of the plants that I got in someone's front yard and looks like it will grow quite big! I thought most succulents were tiny and in cute little pots! lol (Boy, was I wrong!)
    How do we keep them small…besides the obvious of choice of not buying the big ones. (clearly, I didn't do my homework! lol) Do we just keep trimming it back or taking the plant out completely from the ground and then planting back just a tiny portion of it back into the ground? (Seeing as succulents don't really need roots to grow, I'm guessing?) Any advice could save me the "I told you so" lecture from my hubby. lol Thanks!

    Great VD! THANK you. I'm a newbie! Want to do a succ garden but live in zone 7b, so succs have to come inside for winter. Do i dig them up in fall or make a garden with succs in a container & pull pots out in fall? Thank you!
