There is such a variety of planters these days with so many different sizes, shapes, and colors available. The good news is you don’t have to limit yourself to using them on just a patio, porch, or deck.

The right planter can enhance the landscaped beds around your yard.

One example includes adding height to low-growing plants by planting them in a tall container.


This is a great way to keep plants with a low cold tolerance happy since you can quickly move them inside during the winter months. It also adds some height variation in the overall look of your flower bed.

A pop of color can brighten your space with a fun planter. And a popular way to fill an area under a tree is with a spill pot. Dig out a little area for your planter to lay sideways without rolling around. Then plant blooming flowers inside the pot and spilling out of it.


Using your imagination to mix up the color, size, and style of your planters can really had an extra touch to the landscaped areas in your yard and make your house the envy of the neighborhood.
