Choosing the Right Containers For Your Ourdoor Space

Category: Garden & Interior Design | Posted: Tue Oct 19, 2010 10:52 pm

Container gardening can be a lot of fun. In a matter of minutes, your garden can be totally transformed, simply by sliding potted plants across the patio or grass.

Another great advantage of container gardening lies in the fact that each container may be specially prepared for each new plant. As some plants are acid-loving, and other die from an overly low pH, containers make it possible to have low and high pH plants side-by-side.

Of course, that brings us to the topic of precisely what kinds of containers we should use. In keeping with the overall design of your outdoor space, select planters that fit the 'vibe' you've created. Or, use containers to change the feel of the yard entirely.

For instance, a whimsical and unique painted pot can add its own ambiance to an outdoor area. A more reserved design can add a sense of refinement. Pick and choose containers that suit your taste.

Remember, some plants like tall containers, others like wider ones. Don't impose your taste on a plant to its detriment! Find out what's best for each plant, and always be sure the container will be the right size. (C) 2010 Masara
