Hide the downspout with a trellis.  I really like this idea and it looks great too. Considering we need to change the downspout in our new house this'll be perfect!

Came across this cracker of an idea to hide those ugly water pipes/rain spouts. Creative and clever. ~ purplehomes: Clever or creative?

Hang a succulent basket..I did one like this last year..wonderful!! I just used a basket, lined bottom with small rocks, added miracle grow mixed with soil..placed small pebbles and my succulents..it grew and grew!!  within 40 days, it actually doubled in size, it is now even bigger will be glorious this year!!

Create a succulent hanging basket with Painted echeveria (Echeveria nodulosa) , Pearl of Nuremberg echeveria (E. ‘Perle von Nürnberg'), and October Daphne sedum (Sedum sieboldii ‘Mediovariegatum')
