The homeowners wanted to create a landscape that would thrive and evolve in each season. They wanted to use plantings to screen themselves from neighbors and the street. There are many planters throughout this property that are created and rotated throughout each season to bring extra color and vibrant elements.
There’s no shortage of planters available, in just about any size and style you might need. But if you’re working in a contemporary or urban setting, or if you want to create your own “wall” of privacy plantings, simple, rectilinear styles may work best. Blox Rectangular Galvanized Charcoal Planters, $49.95 to $69.95 from CB2, are made of matte-finished galvanized steel, for a sleek but industrial look.
Hang this vertical planter on a wall, dress up a bookshelf or add life to your mantle decor. This wine crate will hold nine 4” plants, but floral designer Angela Darrah chose to only use five. She filled the remaining four cubes with mosses, kiwi vine and white mini pumpkins.
