Planters and Plants

Plants and flowers may have an ecological and scientific job on this planet, but they also make a home feel more alive with their bright colored blossoms and leaves. Having the correct pot is just as important as the soil, fertilizer and water.

There are many types of planters to choose from for both indoor planters and outdoor planters:
  • Window Boxes
  • Pots, Tubs & Urns
  • Planter Troughs
  • Garden Beds
  • Planter Terrariums
  • Free-Standing Planters

Outdoor planters can add as much character to the curb appeal of the home as the plants themselves. Using the correct planter strategically placed in the landscape will help draw the attention around the entire property.

Large outdoor planters can even help make gardening easier.

Not only do they vary in size, shape and material, they also come in a wide variety of colors:
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Bronze
  • Brown
  • Copper
  • Gold
  • Green
  • Grey
  • Red
  • Silver
  • Tan
  • Terracotta
  • White

Planters also can be found in a wide range of materials:
  • Plastic
  • Fiberglass
  • Vinyl
  • Wooden
  • Ceramic
  • Copper
  • Aluminum
  • Steel
  • Concrete
  • Wrought Iron

An indoor planter placed on the counter with bright flowers or plants can lighten the mood and add warmth to the room. According to the "Interior Landscape Plants for Indoor Air Pollution Abatement," a 1989 study by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, indoor plants clean the air by absorbing pollutants into their soil thus making them harmless. Having indoor plants is great no matter which way you look at it.

Planters can also be used to serve a function such as becoming the partition between two rooms or hiding an unused narrow corner. Ensuring that the plant is accented by an indoor planter and vice versa is important when decorating the home. These accents will help to set the attitude whether it be sophisticated, perky, or relaxed.

The next time you consider a plant, be sure to spend as much time thinking about the planter. Keep in mind where the plant and planter will be placed and how it will affect the aesthetics and mood of the room or landscape.
