In the warmer months of spring and summer, there’s no shortage of vibrant plant life to be found. Add some of nature’s bounty to your own outdoor space by outfitting your porch, patio, deck, or balcony with planted shrubs and flowers. We’re sharing five of our favorite ways to use plant life in an outdoor space …
1) Create an Eclectic Arrangement
Group together a handful of planters in varying sizes, styles, and finishes. The mix of shapes and textures will add depth and character to your outdoor space, resulting in a look that’s invitingly eclectic.
2) Flank the Front Door
Use a pair of matching planters to create a welcoming entryway. Stately planters on either side of the door add elegance and distinction to the front porch or doorstep.
3) Maximize Balcony Space
To add plant life to a small balcony without compromising space, look for rail planters that can be attached to balcony railings. Use traditional flower boxes to create a vibrant ledge of greenery, or colorful stackable pots for a more whimsical look.
5) Hang a Vertical Wall Garden
If you’re short on ground or table space, a vertical garden offers the perfect opportunity to maximize space while flexing your green thumb. Choose the design style that best suits your tastes, find an available wall surface, and get growing!
