Summer is almost here and containers are a great way to add pops of color in your landscape. Colorful pots are an easy way to get the color party started but for those with an eye for creativity, there are many other options for creating a container garden. For example, the cart in this picture adds a little more interest and can be placed strategically in your garden for an unexpected burst of color. You can also try an old boot, bicycle with basket in front or even an old porcelain bathtub!
Of course, you want to make sure you cater to the location of your container. Use sun-loving plants and shade-loving plants in the appropriate environments. You will also want to combine different textures to maximize the look. Containers are a great way to add more interest and color to your garden and you can enjoy them all summer long so get digging!
