A few great flower pots filled with beautiful flowers can set a tone for any lawn or patio. The best thing about using yard planters is changing your selection of plants from year to year which shows off your artistry and can be a rewarding experience. Make sure your lawn planters are made with drainage holes to allow accurate irrigation for proper production of plant growth. If your planter does not have drainage holes, you can break up a clay pot to place at the bottom to help keep water from sitting on the roots.

Many businesses use flower pots along their store front to establish curb appeal. Architects and interior designers use them indoors for ornamental design to help establish texture and dimension. Balcony’s and roof tops are a great place for large planters to help bring nature to an uninhibited growing area. There are endless areas you can place a patio planter and if you get bored with it at one place you can easily move it to another.

Whether it is your lawn patio or an interior corner, planters are great accents. Major attractions also include patio statues. Choose your favorite animal, angel or gargoyle and use them as a focal point or display them as a tucked away secret. The most important thing is to enjoy your patio statues design.

  1. Would like to use rex begonia hanging basket in area that receives morning sun until noon. I live in New York.

    • Morning Sun is fine. Just make sure is doesn’t dry out between waterings. Probably a good rule of thumb would be to water it once a week. If the temperature reaches the high 80’s or 90’s than you will need to water more often.
