Container Gardening

by Guest on Apr 28, 2012

Container gardening can be as simple as putting a potted plant on your porch. But even the simplest garden can become a big mess or a legal nightmare without proper planning. Here are a few things to consider when setting up your containers:

  • Have good catch basins or other ways of dealing with drainage so water run-off won't annoy your neighbors, or cause stains or damage to your building.
  • Use existing structures for shade and support. Make sure your balcony, windowsill, or roof can handle what you're going to do on it.
  • For hanging supports, find a solid beam to put plant hooks into - remember, your plants will get heavier as they grow.
  • Put rollers under big pots before filling them with plants and soil, so you can move them if you need to.
  • Give yourself room to get between pots to clean. Make sure you can sweep and even mop around your plants. Inevitably, water will run off and leaves will fall.
  • Make sure you can get close enough to your plants to water and take care of them.
