5 Reasons to Add Planters to Your Garden Landscape

Planters are a fantastic and useful addition to any garden. Not only are they affordable but they can instantly change the look of a garden area. They are also perfect for low maintenance gardens, however, there are also many other benefits to adding planters. Below are our top 5 reasons to add planters to your garden:


  1. ADD HEIGHT TO YOUR GARDEN

  1. PLANT WHERE NO PLANT HAS BEEN BEFORE
    When you're in an urban location you often have to sacrifice having a garden. However, there are a variety of planters that allow you to extend your space vertically.

  1. ADD FLASHES OF COLOR
    Planters don't just have to be natural wood or stained brown. Planters painted in bright tones can add a flash of color to your garden even on the dullest winter day!

  1. DEFINE OR ADD ADDITIONAL SCREENING TO YOUR GARDEN
    When planters are placed or built together they define and screen areas of your garden. Seating areas can be defined with well placed rectangular planters. Groups or rows of planters can be planted with taller plants and shrubs to provide additional screening to an area of your garden.
