Choosing The Right Planter
Consider the many different containers that can be used for the plants in your yard. Vertical planters that will allow you to attach the container to the wall are great ways to conserve on space. Porch planters can also be used to provide decoration along the driveway and near the front and back doors.
Decorating With Tiered Flower Beds
Another way to use containers as a part of your exterior landscaping is through tiered flowered beds. By stacking planter containers on steps that are part of the landscape, homeowners create a space that adds depth. With the right approach, homeowners can allow their vision of a lush garden come to life.
Using Planters As Borders
Planter containers can also be used to create borders. Larger containers can be used to hold plants that line the driveway or to contain small trees. Smaller planters can be used to line the sidewalk leading up to the front or back doors. No matter the size, planters can create a fluid border in a garden space that pulls your garden together.
Choosing Versatility In Your Planters
Homeowners looking to decorate their yard with creative materials can do so without sacrificing their vision of a classy appearance. Well-cleaned concrete blocks can serve as planters while also providing your landscape with some boundaries. Use the natural features of your yard to your advantage to maximize the space and objects in your yard. For example, large stones can be hollowed out and used as planters. Depending on how chic your landscaping plans are, you can also hollow out logs and use them as planters for a more natural look.
Picking The Perfect Plant
The perfect plant is just as important as the planter itself. Using landscape containers to beautify your New Jersey home simply requires you to find the right plants to fill the pots. Flowers indigenous to the environment, including anemones, asters, astilbes, basket-of-golds, bee balms, blanket flowers, chrysanthemums, and more, are manageable plants that can make your home’s exterior more pleasing to the eye.
