Outdoor planters add color and design to your garden
Potted gardens with plants and flowers offer a treat for all your senses. The fresh scent of floral arrangements and growing herbs offers a welcoming aroma when guests visit your home. Display tropical plants, herbs and flowers in novelty planters shaped like carts, baskets and tricycles for a unique look in your yard. Listen to the sound of birds near your potted shrubs, and taste the flavors of a small herb garden or a tomato plant in your backyard.
Many planters and decorative garden pots are large enough to hold many plants in each container. Free-standing screen planters sit against a wall to create a display of color and texture in a large area. These planters will look stylish on a front porch, patio or garden pathway, and you can add garden stakes for a splash of color. To create a flower bed or vegetable garden in a small area without using decorative planters, consider building a raised bed garden. The square shape is easy to maintain, promotes better plant growth and fits comfortably into a small backyard or urban area.
Hanging baskets add a welcoming touch to your front porch, back deck or garden gazebo. The rust-resistant metal baskets are designed to withstand years of use. You can eliminate the hassle and expense of potted plants that fall off the deck or take up valuable deck space with planters that hang from your deck railing. These planters come in several adjustable sizes and fit most standard railings. With just a few mounting brackets that are often included with the planter, you'll have a collection of floral accents to decorate the veranda.
You'll find a variety of accessories for your decorative planters, like coco liners and chains, which are sometimes included with hanging baskets. The natural fibers of the liner retain water so you spend less time watering your plants. Simply insert a round or rectangular liner into the planter, fill the planter with potting soil and add your plants or flowers. Flower box holders and plant hangers insure that your planters stay in place whether they're sitting on a window sill or hanging from a garden arbor.
