In addition to considering the type of plant you want to use, you should focus on the size of the plant as well. Container gardens look best with different sized plants and pots, so try and choose an assortment of different sized plants to create a diverse garden. The next thing to consider is the type of pots you will use. There are many different kinds of patio planters and pots and they vary in material, size, and shape. Plastic flower pots are a common choice because they tend to be the least expensive. In addition, plastic pots come in a variety of colors and styles, and are light weight so they are easy to move. Moreover, plastic is a durable material that is well insulated, helping your plants to stay healthy in cooler weather. However, because of this insulation, plastic pots do not drain well because they are not porous.

Ceramic flower pots are made from hardened clay and come in a variety of different colors and sizes. These pots tend to be more decorative than plastic and do not hold as much water as plastic, making them a better option for healthy growing plants. In addition, ceramic is a great choice for large flower pots because they are heavy enough to prevent the plants from falling over. However, their weight is often a disadvantage for ceramic pots because it makes them hard to move. Flower container gardening offers so many different style options for planting. There are many different types of flower bed ideas with pots to choose from ranging from a few simple pots, to more elaborate raised gardens. Plants in pots can be placed throughout your yard or deck, adding a splash of color to your landscape.

In addition, hanging pots or planters can be purchased to hang colorful flowers from the roof of your deck or home. Another type of garden you can plant on your deck is raised gardens. These types of gardens are surrounded by wood, making the area look like a large sandbox with plants. They can be various heights, whether low to the ground or a few feet high, depending on your personal preference. Raised flower beds are great because their height makes maintaining the plants easier because you don’t have to crouch down to take care of them.
