Planting a flower pot can be a convenient and satisfying way to grow flowers, vegetables, bushes, trees and anything you can dream of. That is the beauty of planting with planter pots you can use your imagination. It really doesn’t matter what you plant when it blossoms it will add color, texture and life to any home or commercial setting. Landscape architects design areas with garden sculpture so they are not only functional but also beautiful and harmonious with the natural environment.
There are many different kinds of soil to choose from at your local store. With a green thumb and a little compost or some back yard dirt you can produce a great container garden. Make sure to follow the instructions for fertilizing and add some vermiculite to the soil so the plant will drain well. It is wise to choose a flower pot that has holes in the bottom for good drainage. Another trick is to place broken pieces of a clay pot in the bottom so that the water will have a place to drain and not be on the roots of the plant.
It is good to keep in mind your setting and what it is that you wish to highlight when picking plants for your flower pot. You may also wish to pick plants depending on height, color and where you plan to place the flower pot. It is often recommended to use a variety of sizes and shapes to complement the landscape. Many architects will use a matching pair of flower pots as an entry way.

If you invest in concrete flower pots they will be sure to age gracefully. They are a classic choice for outdoor use and add depth to your garden sculpture. Planters made of composite materials are lighter in weight which makes them a little easier to move around.
We recommend you visit Lawn Patio for an exciting display of sturdy and stylish garden sculpture to choose from.
