Award-winning landscape designer Margie Grace, owner of Grace Design Associates in Santa Barbara, says this is the perfect time to spruce up your garden with easy-to-maintain container gardens.
“Container plantings add height and pops of color during the autumn and winter seasons,” says Margie. “Now is a perfect time to plant new containers, as the weather cools and summer plants get ready to hibernate.”
Here’s some inspiration to get you started…
Add a punch of color and flavor with edibles.
Containers can be architectural elements, which set the tone and style for the rest of the garden…Think outside the pot! Just about anything can be adapted to contain soil and plants.
Pots aren’t just for planting anymore…use them for fountains and reflective bowls. Pick up an accent color from the surrounding plantings in the color of the pot for a dramatic note.
