How to Landscape Around a Wishing Well

How to Landscape Around a Wishing Well -- Wishing wells may be traced back to Roman-British and Celtic mythology, although the ritual remains shrouded in mystery. Many people in modern culture, whether superstitious or simply down on their luck, throw pennies into wishing wells in the hope of being granted a wish in exchange. You could bring this old behavior to your home garden by decorating with an elegant wishing well and perhaps bringing some luck to your yard. 

Hanging Plant


Insert a potted plant into the wishing well bucket; alternatively, buy a hanging basket and remove the hook. The well may also be used as a giant raised-bed garden planter.

Flower Bed


Make a flower bed to surround the wishing well, following the curve of the wishing well to make the pattern. For example, you can surround a circle wishing well with a circular flower bed; add a square flower bed around a square wishing well; or utilize different forms, such as a square flower bed around a round wishing well, to offer some geometric complexity to your design.

Add Rocks


To define the flower bed and divide it from the grass, edge it with river rocks, bricks, or polyvinyl garden edging. Select an edge material that matches the wishing well.



Install a stone walkway leading to the wishing well so that you may access it without destroying the turfgrass. Lay flat flagstones for a stepping stone pathway or dig the space for a formal paver walkway.

Vertical Garden


Plant climbing vines directly or near the wishing well and give them to grow straight up. You can use flowering vines like morning glory (Ipomoea spp.) and star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) or non-flowering vines like aralia ivy (Fatshedera lizei) and creeping fig (Ficus pumila).
