Planters instead of gardening this year

In many instances, planters can be a lot more beneficial than gardens. They can be placed almost anywhere, have so many more arrangements that you can do with different containers, can look better than gardens and are a lot less time-consuming.

Planters can easily be placed inside and outside of apartments, homes or businesses. This is because they work so well in limited spaces and on spacious grounds. You can create your dream garden anywhere by simply mixing and matching a bunch of different planters. There are so many different ways you can use planters to define your living space, whether it’s on a patio, a floral arrangement or going up a staircase.

There are many different containers you can use to show off your plants.  The plants’ containers can be used multiple times and hold many different types of plants that change with the seasons and the gardener’s personality. Glazed ceramic pots hold water well. Wood containers are great because it still able to get enough sunlight no matter where the planter is located. Metal planters heat up rapidly and can burn roots if put directly in the sun. Clay pots are the most popular of all the containers. This is because they let air into the soil, allow water to drain out through the sides and bottom and carbon dioxide to and from the root system.

A lot of times, plants look better in planters instead of in a garden. This is because a lot of plants may need less sunlight than what is given. With planters you have the benefit of deciding where to put the container based on how much sunlight your plants need. Planters use an all-purpose commercial planting mix, which is better than garden dirt because they are lightweight and free from soil-borne diseases and weeds.

 

Most importantly, planters require less time, space and energy than planting in the ground. This makes planting easy for anyone. They come in many different shapes, sizes, colors, and textures so you can create a custom look for your home.  For more information, visit our website: http://www.hooksandlattice.com.
