5 Simple Garden Container Ideas

Although many people simply use filled garden containers on their deck or patio to add impact, they can be used as problem-solvers! Let’s look at five examples below…To start with, regardless of where and how you’re using them, for maximum impact, garden containers of mixed plants should include a “Thriller” (usually a tall plant), a “Filler” (something bushy to fill empty spaces) and a “Spiller” (something that gracefully spills over the pot).

Once you’ve created a container, you’ll find plenty of ways to use them to solve an array of garden, deck or landscape problems.  Here are 5 simple ideas:

1.  Brighten dull spots

Colorful container gardens can be used to fill dull or colorless spots in the garden.


2. The great disguiser!

Containers can be used to cover or take attention away from an unattractive wall or bare spot around a deck or porch.

3.  Groupings are great!

By grouping several containers together, you can create a sense of fullness; you can also rotate containers around, depending on what looks best during any particular time of year.

4. An easy way to mark transitions

Containers can be used to mark transitions in deck levels, stairs or even walkways.

5. Add a tropical touch to your water feature!

Containers filled with Tropicanna cannas and other water-loving plants can be used in water gardens to add color, texture and interest.
