Endless possibilities with unique Garden Planters by: Glenn
Turn your dull patio into a place bursting with color and heady with fragrance. It is easy to do with a few outdoor planters in the right places. They're portable, easy to change or update and they lend natural color and interest to an otherwise unexciting area. And they're fun to experiment with too.
Whether you fill them with just one type of flower or you combine textures and colors in a stunning arrangement, planters will bring nature a little closer while making your backyard retreat a little more peaceful. So fill a few with your favorite blooms and let the fun begin.
Fill large ones with shrubs to create a little privacy or sprinkle a few small and medium ones around your seating area for color and interest. Arrange them with plants like you are creating a bouquet. Some are for color, some add height and some cascade over the edge for interest.
You can even move them off the deck. The possibilities are endless. Try placing wishing well planter along a winding garden path. It becomes a stopping point on the brief but lovely journey to your patio. You can breathe in the fragrances of sweet blooms or enjoy a shady reprieve from the sun. You can even use them to deter bugs from ruining your backyard barbeque. Simply fill them with geraniums they are a natural insect repellent.
No matter what you fill them with or where you place them you'll have fun creating your patio paradise with living art. Your patio should be a place you want to hang out. Surround yourself with the fragrance and beauty of lush foliage and flowers.
