Small-Space Container Gardens
Link your home's interiors and exteriors, create accent borders, and soften hard edges with creative containers and colorful plants.
Containers can hold everything from groundcovers to flowering plants to small trees. When combining several plants in one vessel, a good rule of thumb is to group three types: tall, bushy, and cascading. This guarantees a garden in every pot.
Here, ceramic tiles embellish the risers of these garden steps, but it’s the potted plants that introduce living color. Arranged off to one side to keep the way clear, the geraniums and succulents are quickly and easily moved whenever the weather or the traffic pattern changes.
