5 Clever Ways to Use Plant Containers

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.

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.
