Adding a Dash of Green Using Planters for Your Home
Plants are good for you Plants help clean the air, purify water and reduce stress. But did you also know that they can bring a whole lot of colour and life to your home? Adding plants to your home does not have to be hard—there are so many options available! From planters on windowsills and even pots on decks, there's no shortage of ways to bring greenery into your living space or outdoor area. So, if you're looking for some inspiration or just want to spruce up your interior design with some green thumb action: here are our favourites!
Planters are a great way to add life to your home. They can brighten up your entryway, showcase greenery on your deck, or be used to increase privacy in your yard. Many styles and sizes of planters are available so it's important to choose one that fits your needs.
You can find planters in almost every style, size and shape. They can be small or large and made from fiberglass, metal or plastic. Some are designed for indoor and outdoor use while others are meant for indoor use only. If you want to add some greenery to your home without making a big commitment or spending much money on plants (or even soil), then planters may be the way to go!
When choosing a container, consider how much sunlight it will get, what plants you want to grow and the overall design of your home and outdoor spaces.
What about a drainage hole?
Root health is extremely important for plants. Their roots are how they get nutrients from soil and water, and having properly draining soil can keep your plants' roots healthy. Leaving a plant sitting in stagnant water can lead to rotting of the roots or keep them from absorbing nutrients properly. Planters with drainage holes at the bottom allow excess water in the soil to drain, keeping the water at a level that helps your plants thrive. While different plants have different levels of moisture tolerance, you'll probably want to create a drainage layer with pebbles, pumice, or activated charcoal when using a pot without holes at the bottom. Our fiberglass planters do not have drainage holes but can easily be drilled.
There are many ways to add a little green in your life!
Taking care of plants can be a relaxing hobby that adds beauty to your home. Just make sure you have all the tools you need to keep your green thumb bright and happy!
