Planters can help extend our inside space into the outdoors by adding beauty and functionality to decks and porches as well as adding curb appeal to the front and sides of your home. Offering many designs, colors and style, every home can be upgraded with flowers and greenery.
Added Curb Appeal
Did you ever drive by a home and just feel welcomed? Perhap you didn’t realize that part of the great appeal is the warm inviting look of their planters. Outside curb appeal adds so much to the look of your home. Planters, like that of our Niagara design can blend into the home or be a major focal point in the yard. When staging your home to sell, this unique way of changing the outside look of your home can add dollars to your sales price. The planters themselves can be a negotiating item in any sale offers.
Another way planters can be used is as room dividers in large spaces. Separating spaces into different areas for specific purposes can take advantage of unused and wasted space. Creating a sitting room or foyer with plants will add dimension and style. Since planters are mobile, they can easily be moved when the larger space is needed for family gatherings and parties in the home. This unique feature allows you to be creative with your design.
Planters Add Acoustic Quality
Today’s busy homeowners believe that “less is more”. However, less furniture and less places for your eyes to “rest”, means the potential is greater for echoes and noises that can make a home environment stressful and tiring. By their sheer existence in a room, planters with plants can help absorb noise. Not wanting to add more work to busy lives, plants requiring little attention would work to serve several purposes while adding beauty and grace to any home.
Line Your Driveway
Planters on either (or both) sides of your driveway will add color and allow your unique style to show. Seasonal flowers, or year-round slow-growing trees such as Pine, Juniper, Japanese Maple, and Olive do very well in rectangular containers such as the Narbonne Rectangular Planter Box. Check your Planting “Zone” so that you know what grows best. Keep in mind when lining your driveway of your family’s driving skills! While Planters are strong and durable, they do have limits and so do most automobiles!
Beautify That Privacy Fence
We love our privacy! In areas where houses are close together, a privacy fence is a must. But it doesn’t have to be unattractive. Planters along the fence will dress up that yard with color and define your particular style. Taller trees surrounded by low ground cover plants, or medium shrubs with grass in the planters like the Tiergarden Rectangular Rail Planter will add new life to an old fence. If no privacy fence exists, why not make one with planters! Consider putting a vegetable garden in the planters for your family to enjoy. Teaching children the joys and rewards of gardening will create memories for a lifetime.
So many options await for your unique taste to be displayed. Design your home with planters, both inside and out, and enjoy the wonderful things that plants add to our lives.
