2018 Planting in an Urban Setting

Add lots of pots

Add color too with oversized terracotta or plastic planters overflowing with anything from tomatoes to wildflowers.

Use a birdbath as a planter

Birdbaths aren’t just for water. Plant low maintenance plants such as succulents, which stow water in their stems and leaves.

Let plants climb a wall

Liven up a plain patio wall with a climbing vine, which adds character and beauty.

Group containers together

Grouping pots is an easy way to garden as they’re transportable and replaceable with little effort.

Build a green screen

Covered with English ivy, a chain-link fence acts as a natural privacy barrier while adding softness to the space.
