If your home has a large or small outdoor patio or balcony, planters are an easy way to add style and greenery to it. Choosing something unique will definitely be a conversation piece.
1. Outdoor Hanging Planters
Outdoor hanging plants are especially attractive when you don’t have much outdoor space. You can hang multiple of them from your porch ceiling to create a garden sanctuary. I love the Eva Solo hanging self-watering planters because they are simple and have a sleek modern style that highlights the plants. Check out this link on how this particular planter looks on Lumens Website.
2. Tall Planters
Taller planters are perfect for large outdoor patios. Matching them in pairs near a patio door is one of my favorite looks. Depending on if you are planning to move them around will determine what kind of material you will like. If you are planning to keep them in one spot for long periods of time concrete is the way to go. I love going with something lighter like plastic or fiberglass because if you are like me moving things around all the time. Fiberglass is definitely the way to go.
3. Farmhouse Style Planters
Even though my home is a contemporary design, the casual charm of the farmhouse-style patio of oversized pots in different sizes is still appealing to me. There are many ways to arrange these pots. I wanted to plant some vegetable plants so the heavy, oversized pots are perfect. They can’t tip over from the wind.
If you are planning on moving them the lighter materials such as plastic are perfect for flowers or whatever plants your choose.
4. Planter Stands
Standing planters with thin, tapered legs are great added accent for the modern furniture. Plants and shrubs are the ideal choices to fill your planter’s stands. These planters look just as good grouped together as they do standing alone. Use them to fill out spaces in your patio space.
5. Square Planters
If you are looking for simple and minimalistic design square planters are ideal for achieving this. Large, dramatic plants that stand upright help create a contemporary design. Choose potted shrubs and palms style plants. Here in front of my garage, I added two square self-watering pots. It’s perfect since I don’t have to worry about watering them. They are perfect way to exemplify the modern design that I was looking for my home.
6. Bowl Style Planters
These stylish choices look great in the gardens. Ideal to add a touch of Zen beauty, this type of planter also look great in groups.
7. Self Water Planters
I love self-watering planters. I have one and it has saved me time and money. These pots and planters have a built-in reservoir, allowing you to water your plants by simply adding water to the reservoir rather than having to keep track of the moisture level of the soil and watering according to each plant’s needs.
