Don't give up on your cracked or damaged stone or concrete bird bath; they make perfect bird bath gardens. Fill it with succulents, trailing over the edge, or make it into a miniature garden.

Two of the winners of the Best Succulent Containers contest have been bird baths, made into spectacular planters. Follow their lead, and make your own.
