Container plantings, aka micro landscapes, aka plants in pots…

Outdoor container plantings create focal points in the garden. You might adorn your patio table with a succulent micro-garden; set a pot of kitchen herbs within arms reach of your back door for snipping; or let your eyes wander toward a jewel-like planter tucked into the foliage at the back of your garden. Add structure and color to any landscape plan, take up dead space between bloom times or balance the composition of a small garden space with a carefully placed potted arrangement. Containers become microcosms, meditations, concentrated growing space, and seasonal pops of color. They can be purely ornamental or highly productive, or both!

We source durable, frost-resistant ceramic containers as well as wine barrels, custom cedar planters, and custom hypertufa planters. If you want to do it yourself but you need a little push, we offer workshops, consultation packages, and design coaching. We are also happy to design, install and maintain for you. Let us know what you are thinking and we will tailor a plan to deliver you a magical container garden.
