Potted plants are a creative way to bring color and life to any yard. They are perfect for small yards where space is a problem and pull together a large yard.
The versatility of plant pots can open up your yard to endless possibilities. Potted plants can be arranged in any space either on the ground or hung. You don’t need to have a flower bed or space for one to enjoy the beauty of a garden right in your own back yard.
Make a statement with pots. Pot plants lined on a bench make an interesting arrangement that is pleasing to the eye. Have a corner in your garden you would like to hide? Just add a bench and fill it with potted plants that climb and trail and that unsightly corner becomes one of beauty. If you are needing to divide one area of the yard from another, benches and chairs with potted plants on top will define your outdoor space.
Create an instant display of color by adding potted plants along a walkway or path. Decide in your yard where you would like to place them and gage the amount of sunlight they will recieve during the day. Buy plants that are suited to the light of where you are going to place them. The great thing about pots is that if you don’t like how they look once you have them set up you can move them around and play with them until you find a display that looks best to you.
Plant pots scattered on a decked yard will add color and shade where none would be otherwise. You can create a magical garden area by choosing plants of varying heights and placing them where you can see and best enjoy them. Planted pots are easy to care for and virtually weed free.
To add punch to a corner or entrance way to your yard place potted plants in groups of three. Where one potted plant on its own can look lonely the garden effect of a few of them will make your entrance sparkle.
Take advantage of hanging plant pots to add dimension to your yard and fill in spaces above other plants. Nothing creates a garden feel quicker or easier. There are many types of hanging brackets on the market to use, if you don’t have eaves or trees in your yard to hang plants from add brackets along the side of your fence to hang plants from for an instant splash of color.
