Planters are a piece of outdoor furniture that many of us have. Those being so common makes them no less important in the larger scheme of decorating as well. So we are going to give our tribute to these important pieces and talk about how you can make yours stand out in the grand scheme of things.
Outdoor Furniture of all types can fit with these.They all come in many different colors and styles so it is very easy to find two pieces which can work together. As usual though the sheer selection can be a bit troublesome for many people. As usual try to pick pieces which fit with your color scheme before doing anything else. This will usually allow you to keep things in order even when a surprisingly different piece comes up and you buy it.
Recycled planters are now incredibly popular. Turning an old food container or even wheelbarrow into a planter will give you a unique piece which is also earth-friendly. May people are doing this themselves or are ordering pieces like this from companies. It is a big trend and has some good reasons for being such a big trend in the larger scheme of things. This will be around for some time.
If you really want to go to extra lengths you may look into hydroponic planters. These super-advanced pieces of outdoor furniture have a water and nutrient bath in the bottom. This allows you to grow many plants which would not grow in normal conditions. They require a lot of maintenance in many cases but can really impress anyone who has not seen one before. These are also, in many ways, the future of where gardening is going.
Some planters also double as other pieces of outdoor furniture. They can do everything from acting as a serving cart to having a drink holder on the side. The novelty of these is obvious and they can make great pieces for parties as well if people like interesting gadgets. Look into these as well or craft your own if you are able to do so. In fact crafting your own planters is almost always a good idea if you can.
As far as what material to use there is no right choice. Stone and super-modern materials are both good choices because they are so durable in their own ways. They also add their own little embellishment to the design process as well. Depending on what look you are going for you may want to favor one over the other. Or you may want to mix them in order to make a different type of setting.
You can also split your choices on planters and outdoor furniture down cultural lines. European, African and Indian are all different choices you can go with and each one has a special charm. The amount of choices you have is once again staggering. In the end you will want to go with your own personal taste and that of those you care about to make the right choice.
