Have you ever thought of decorating your home with plants in garden planters? This is ideal for enhancing the beauty of your living area. With the help of garden planters, you can make your home feel like a blooming garden all year round.
First, you need to choose what type of planters you will use and the material they are made of. For your outdoor planters, it would be better to use durable material and they are also usually larger. The best materials for outdoor planters are concrete, wood, fiberglass, plastic and metal. The best indoor planters are ceramic or terra-cotta. Depending on the plants you intend to plant and where you want to place them, you can decide about the shapes and material of the large round planter.
Terra-cotta and wood planters allow your plants to breathe easily. Most wood garden planters are made of cedar, a pressure-treated hardwood which is rot-resistant to reduce moisture damage.
You can find a variety of planter shapes in any store, including rectangle, bowl, square and round planters. Trellis planters are very interesting, as well as hanging planters, trough planters and Topsy turvy. Next, have in mind the place you want to put your plants.
If you have a balcony and want to keep your garden planters on it, a combination of trough planters and garden boxes is a great choice. For your backyard, concrete planters come in a variety of unique shapes. You can use ceramic planters or terra-cotta in your home or office, since they are more suitable to indoors than the other materials. If you have terra-cotta planters you will need to water more often, because this material is porous and loses moisture faster than other materials.
In case you cannot take care of your plants by watering them regularly, your best choice is self-watering planters. Their sub-irrigation system keeps your plants fresh. This kind of planter is substantial, looks great and is of high quality. You can even keep them in places that are hard to reach. Self-watering planters are ideal as you do not have to worry about your plants when you are on long trips or a vacation.
