“As long as you have strong corners, it feels much more like a room,” says Steve Silk from HGTV. “Then you can easily connect the dots between the corners and enclose your room.”

Adding architectural interest: Mix a variety of size pots with sculpted plants to create a unique eye catching design. Enhance the look by planting contrasting or matching foliage with the color of the container. The great thing about pots, you can move them around until you get the look you want. “Find a pot with a nice sculptural form or beautiful color, and it becomes an art object all on its own,” says Steve. “Place an interesting pot as a focal point or to anchor a seating area.” Weather vanes can add a fun whimsical feel to your garden.

Edible container Gardens: There are many fruits, vegetables, and herbs that grow well in containers. Especially great if you don’t have enough time to take care of a big garden. Just imagine having tomatoes, zucchini, peppers, basil, onion, and even a lemon tree, just outside your back door. Without all the time and hard work of a traditional garden.
