1. Arrange Containers near Seating Areas –
Group containers on the sides of benches and chairs to naturally define edges of an outdoor room or create a nook by placing a living centerpiece on the table.
2. Use Plants Poolside –
Liven up the concrete area around your pool with flowering plants or large containers of tropical plants.
3. Welcome Friends & Family at the Entrance –
Combine plants in one large container or group hanging baskets with planters to draw your guests towards your door.
4. Decorate Outdoor Spaces –
Use your imagination and incorporate planters into new places for a quick pop of color. For example, hang flower baskets from a low tree limb or shepherd's hook and set several potted plants on raised displays within your existing garden. Or perhaps you can distinguish your boat dock with a large potted container at the end.
5. Define Paths, Stairs, and Walkways –
Incorporate a repeated pattern of plants in pots to draw people down paths and walkways or up a wide set of stairs.
