Having a garden filled with greenery and unique décor will bring pleasure to many visitors to your commercial property. For many, gardening is a way to express creativity. But sometimes that creative spark doesn’t come easy. If you’re looking to spice up your commercial landscape, toss a few colorful planters in the mix. Container gardening is an easy way to add character and style to your green oasis. Let’s explore some of the many reasons planters and pots can be fantastic additions to your commercial green space.
Benefits of Pots and Planters
The beauty of using planters to create a garden is the ability to move them around and rearrange them as your heart desires. If you change your mind about the placement of a pot in your commercial green space, you can conveniently pick it up or even roll it to another spot. You can also easily transfer your plant into a different planter or pot for each new season, providing year-round interest.
Large Outdoor Planters
Perhaps one of the trickiest things is planting a large planter with the appropriate amount of plants so that it doesn’t look too crowded or too sparse. When you first put your plants in the pot there should be soil showing in between the different plants. This ensures that the plants and their roots have enough space to grow. If everything is full from day one everything will start to tangle together, stumping growth. Over packing plants into a planter will also increase the risk for poor plant growth and disease.
No matter how many plants you use, the most important thing is that all plants are compatible and require the same sun, water and soil needs.
Large Trees in Large Pots
Planting trees in containers is becoming more popular, especially in landscapes with little or no outside space. You don’t need a large piece of property to grow a tree. If you have a porch, patio, or balcony on your commercial property, you can grow a tree in a large container. Container-grown trees can be used to frame entryways or to provide interesting focal points. They are well suited to small spaces in the landscape such as patios and decks and can be used alongside other container-grown plantings as well.
Choosing the Proper Container
Trees can be planted in regular, moveable containers as well as in large, permanent planters. Containers and planters for landscape trees are available in numerous styles, shapes, and colors. Containers should always complement their surroundings as well as the trees that are placed in them. The container should be large enough to accommodate the tree. Therefore, the mature size of the tree should be considered in order to choose a container with adequate space to accommodate both the growing tree and its roots. Containers should also be as wide as they are high in order to provide the best possible insulation to the roots.
