Unique Garden Planters - Outdoor Decorating w/Containers
by Guest on Jan 23, 2010
Container Gardening and Garden planters are a warm and inviting way to add interest to your outdoor decorating spaces. You can spruce up your outdoor living spaces by adding decorative planters that give your plants "pop"! Let's face it, outdoor decorating is "in" right now - it is the hottest design trend going. There are diverse ways you can add your own personality to your outdoor design space. One of the easiest is to use decorative planters for your garden.
With more and more people spending time indoors working, the desire to return to the outdoors has really hit big. Even if you live in the city, you can bring the outdoors to your home with garden planters or may be a nice trellis or a set of wind chimes! Yesterday's plastic industrial flower pots have given way to the beautiful and practical decorative planters of today. So thinking big, is not out of line when you think outdoor decorating. You can have style and functionality in something as practical as outdoor flower, plants, herb and Garden planters!
CONTAINER GARDENING: More and more people are enjoying the benefits and joys of container gardening. You can have the pleasure of growing your own herbs or food in vegetable planters. There is no doubt in where your food came from or how it was grown when you produce it yourself in garden planters. Control of soil and soil type is one of the first realized benefits. Plants can be rearranged for optimal sun exposure. Lightweight vegetable planters can be easily moved indoors or under cover during sudden rainstorms. Garden planters give the added benefit of your organic gardening when you arrange them to repel insects or cross pollinate.
AESTHETIC APPEAL: Garden planters can add aesthetic appeal to your patio or poolside area. When you use decorative planters to grow your vegetables, plants and flowers, you can mix and match the potted plants for beauty as well as functionality. Tomato plants look exotic in outdoor urns; red peppers are almost whimsical in decorative planters. Your guests will probably not even notice that your outdoor garden decor is so practical. The lightweight nature of some outdoor planter pots makes it easy to avoid a late frost by bringing your potted plants under cover. Tho the plastic pots of yesterday are still available: beautifying your garden using decorative wooden vegetable planters gives it more of natural look!
CONTAINER INVADERS: When you grow your produce in wooden planters, weed control is much easier. By starting out with container soil, you eliminate unwanted seeds from the beginning. Some travel in the air or by birds, but pulling those unwanted weeds out of outdoor planter pots is much easier than pulling weeds out of beds, and your back will love it too. If one of your vegetable planters has some weeds in it, chances are your other vegetable planters won't since it is harder for weeds to travel across outdoor planter pots. Mint and rosemary are examples of herbs that will easily take over a garden plot, but can be controlled and managed if grown in vegetable planters
