Patio Planters

I’m still in the summer patio zone, and now considering some unique patio planter ideas for the spring and summer flowers I like to plant to grace our deck. I love these Slate Planters from Stone Forest Outdoor Planter Collection.

For the do-it-yourself person, this incredible yet simple idea using cinder blocks is a dream planter option if you like the modern style. This planter wall can be created in any size for your patio. I would think it would be best, however, as a ground floor, back yard patio feature.

Here are some more unique patio planter ideas. Enjoy!

Love tons of plants indoors…give a living space unique freshness. Well worth the maintenance.

Earth in Glass – Terrariums

Earth in a Glass?  Terrariums are making a fashionable come-back. They are easy to take care of, self contained, lack the messiness of regular plants, and are great for growing warm weather plants in the winter months or those plants that are difficult to grow.  When done with design inspiration, terrariums can be quite an artistic piece. They add life to a kitchen, bathroom or home office.

Plant Living

Adding plants to your living space will bring life to a dull room. They add color and make your apartment more welcoming and intimate. When you feel your well-designed room lacks something, and you can’t quite put your finger on what to add, consider a well-placed plant or two.
