Create Container Gardens to Decorate Your Home or Business

Flowers, shrubs and ferns can be planted in just about anything. Although they’re ideally found in luxurious garden beds tucked under a blanket of mulch or soil, they’re also used for other things such as pots, hanging baskets, window baskets, wheel barrows and anything else you decide to get creative with. One great way to help make your home or business stand out is with beautiful garden containers that are unique and truly one-of-a-kind.

Garden Containers

Garden containers are fun to make and look great on any residential or commercial property. If you don’t have enough space in your front yard for an abundant garden bed and other features, add some garden containers to add color and plant life to your home. Making a container garden is easier than you might think, and it takes just a few steps to create a garden that is made the right way and will last for a long time.

First, choose the areas where you want your garden containers to go. Container gardens are versatile, and they can go on the ground, on tables or countertops, or even be hung up beneath your home’s window frames. They can live indoors or outdoors, too. You’ll typically see them in front yards, on porches, near doors, outside of windows and in many other locations both inside and outside of a home. You also need to choose the planter itself. From regular planters and pots to decorative items around the house, wheelbarrows, baskets and more, the sky’s the limit!

What to Plant in Your Garden Containers

Next you need to decide on what you plan to plant. In a planter, you can add a variety of ferns and flowers or even small shrubs. This is where you can let your creative juices flow as you choose from a wide range of plants to fill up your garden container. With this step, don’t forget to get all of the planting supplies you will need to plant, like potting soil and fertilizer.

At this point, you’ve chosen where you want the garden containers to go inside or outside of your home or commercial property. You’ve also chosen what you want to plant each item in, and have all of the essential gardening tools and supplies needed to get started. Now is the point where you can begin making your garden containers a reality!

Once you’ve planted your garden, you can enjoy the color and new life you’ve brought to your home or business. Sit back, relax, and take in that adorable wheelbarrow you planted with California poppy flowers or that hanging basket outside of your front door full of lantanas. And, of course, don’t forget to keep them watered!
