Outdoor planters, containers and pots are the perfect way to instantly spruce up your garden. With container gardening you can plant flowers, trees, vegetables and herbs, all of which adapt amazingly to growing in planters. At Taylor Made we supply a quality range of garden planters and have custom built designs for a wide range of purposes. Here are our top 5 reasons why should be using planters in your garden or outdoor space.
#1 Easy gardening for beginners
There are a lot of things to consider when you are gardening in the ground – weeds, pests, diseases, changes in weather – and it takes some time and practice to get it right. So if you’re a budding gardener taking on your garden for the first time, planters are a great place to start. Planting in containers still requires some care and maintenance to ensure your plants have the right soil to thrive, but in comparison container gardening is much easier to master!
#2 Small scale gardening
Planters are a great solution when you are short on space as they allow you to display small trees and plants in any environment with a bit of sunlight. So whether you are working with a small patio, driveway or a balcony, you can still embrace the world of gardening and reap the rewards of growing your own crops!
#3 Spruce things up
With outdoor planters, you can enhance your landscape and create a beautiful garden display. Garden planters are available in a variety of different shapes, colours and materials so it’s easy to create a stunning display of shrubs and flowers with little maintenance involved.
Wooden planters are a popular choice for gardens for their classic look, whilst contemporary planters in materials like fibreglass or aluminium can make an eye-catching feature. With planters you can experiment with different shapes and looks and update your plants and shrubs throughout the year.
#4 Any time of year
When you plant your shrubs or crops in outdoor containers you are not completely dependent on the weather for them to thrive. There are lots of plants that can bloom in cooler weather and if the weather turns, you have the option of moving your plants indoors and repositioning them in your garden to gain maximum exposure to sunlight.
#5 Accessible to everyone
Anyone can enjoy gardening when planting with containers. Most troughs and raised beds can be designed to include tall legs so that bending down is not required. Additionally, purpose-built vegetable planters are perfect for schools and introducing children to the world of gardening.
