Fill a space with beautiful color and texture by using containers that rival earth-bound flower beds—especially in spots where planting is difficult. Container gardens soften hardscapes and add vibrant beauty that you can easily change over the seasons as plants grow and fade. Plus, they allow you to mix plants that wouldn’t normally mix in a single pot or garden bed. Maximize the great potential by artfully assembling multiple containers, especially in places where you don’t have soil or get a lot of rain, such as. B. on your porch or terrace. To make your cluster of containers look like an expert landscaping project that lasts all year, be sure to follow a planting theme, such as: A mix of colorful annuals and perennials, a monochromatic look with flowers and foliage, or even a lush arrangement of tropical houseplants.
