Add vibrancy and life to your landscape

NEW YORK, NY, October 26, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — The pots or planters you use have just as much of an effect as the plants in your space. Use containerized plantings to add vibrancy and life to your landscape.


When considering size, keep in mind the way each container will look in your space. Small pots easily get overwhelmed around taller elements. They are best used in raised gardens or placed on top of existing structures instead of on the ground. Large planters may come across as too harsh, but styled correctly, can be a gorgeous focal point. At John Mini, we evaluate your space to create a custom design and choose sizes that are just right for you.

Planters are made from a variety of materials, so making a choice can be tough. Budget, weight, and complimenting other finishes in the space can all have an effect on the materials that are chosen for your planters.

Choosing planters is just as important of a design choice as choosing a painting or other work of art. Color has a huge impact on design. Cool colors like blue, purple and green are used to make an environment relaxing and calming. On the other hand, complementary colors such as purple and orange generate excitement and energy. Containers come in all types of styles, whether its modern, elegant, rustic, traditional or more. Consulting with a professional design team, like John Mini, can ensure your planters reflect the design you have in mind.

For large containers, it is best to place them in their final spot before filling them. Not only will you ensure you like the way they look there, but when they are full and planted, they might be too difficult to move. Before adding the soil, it is important to review its moisture content in order to understand how much water to add to the soil.

As you can see, there is a great deal of consideration that goes into deciding on planters. Take away the guesswork and hire our professional team that has the expertise it takes to make a statement with containerized plantings.
