The Perfect Finishing Touch For Any Garden
Creating lush borders doesn’t need to be an uphill struggle, as you can cut out all the hard work by buying some large planters.
Spring is well and truly upon us, which means that it’s time to roll up those sleeves and get out into the garden. It can be a little daunting at first – with weeds, grubby paving and frost-ravaged plants to deal with. If your garden doesn’t just need tidying up, but a major style overhaul instead, don’t despair. There’s no need to start any major work or call in a landscape gardener right away – not when you can transform your outside space with some large planters from Suregreen. By using these, you can create lush, attractive borders quickly and easily.
Easy to introduce
The great thing about using large planters to create borders is that you can completely change the look of your garden in just a few hours. They work in any kind of space, whether you’ve got a sprawling back garden or a tiny little patio. They’re also great for directing the flow of traffic around the garden, as well as adding some shade or privacy. So before you begin, just take the time to plan where you’re going to put your planters, looking at what you want to accentuate a
nd on the other hand, detract from in your garden.
Making gardening easier
Borders are a lot easier to take care of when they’re in planters. As they’re raised up off the ground, elderly gardeners as well as those with mobility issues won’t struggle to tend to them – they can just garden from the comfort of a garden chair. When it comes to protecting your plants during the winter, potted plants are a lot easier to cover, saving both your plants and your patience.
They suit a wide variety of plants
The variety of plants that you can grow in big planters is pretty endless. Depending on how big your planters are, you can grow pretty substantial plants in them, such as shrubs or small trees. This is ideal if you want to create a little bit of privacy. Or you can just opt for a traditional flower border to add some colour and interest to your garden. Verbenas, geraniums and dianthus are great, all-weather flowers that will look wonderful in your new planters.
When it comes to filling your planters, make sure that you put a thin layer of gravel in the bottom of the planter to aid drainage, and make sure that the bases of your planters have drainage holes. Then simply fill with whatever soil you need for the plants you want to grow, adding fertiliser and any other products as and when you need them. Once you’ve planted your new plants, all you have to do is just keep watering them and wait for them to spring up!
Enjoy your transformed garden!
Versatile and easy to maintain, large planter borders are fast becoming the number one choice for gardeners – particularly those limited by time or mobility. So if your garden is looking a little unkempt but you just don’t know where to begin, just snap up some new planters and get planting! Available in a range of styles and sizes, you’ll be sure to find the perfect ones for your garden.
