Spring into the Sun

From pool to patio, make your home shine with several of our container gardens.

The wait is over…spring has arrived. Now, you can finally take the party outside! Mild temperatures, fresh air and sunshine are key ingredients for a festive celebration. But, before you fire up the grill, it’s time to give your outdoor spaces the attention they deserve.

From pool to patio, make your home shine with several of our container gardens. It’s an easy solution to your spring spruce-up and entertaining needs.

Simply place the containers around your outdoor rooms for instant spring cheer. In addition to fresh air and direct sunlight, I think container gardens like these infuse liveliness into a space. Likewise, they can be used to create harmony and rhythm.

Need some inspiration?

Balance your outdoor fireplace by placing a container on each side. 
The containers soften the hard lines of the stone, and infuse color into the scene.

While I’m a big fan of symmetry, sometimes a single container is all you need. However, don't be afraid to mix smaller containers around two larger ones.

Add a pop of color around your pool by grouping a collection of containers next to the pool furniture. 

You may even enjoy some natural visitors while lounging nearby!

When it’s time to get the party started, use the containers as decorations.

These versatile beauties can be utilized as-is, or harvest their blooms to create a lovely centerpiece. You may want to keep an extra on hand for this purpose!
