A friend gave me this old ladder and would like to use it different this year. I had it last year in back of my hostas with a flower on top. But you could not see the whole ladder. This year I would like to be able to see the whole ladder.I am thinking about painting it a different color also this year. Would like some ideas of what you would do with it. I live in a small condo and only have front and back porch. I have no grass just cement porches. I would like it to pop more with the terra-cotta pots that I use.

-- I love hostas:)

what about a small climbing vine to make its way up the steps?

I personally love the paint job on it.

I would just experiment with your pots and plants until I had a combination that pleased me. I think if you could make it look like your plants are cascading down the ladder; the contrast between the soft, flowing plants and the hard parallel black lines of the ladder would make a lovely contrast. Show us what you discover.

Thank’s you guys:) That really is a good idea never though of that. What do you think about trailing bacopa or some kind of ivy that’s not to invasive:)
