-- C.J. Sanders President Creative Gardens
When designing your own planted container, there are three important components to remember. First choose your “thriller”- a shrub or tall perennial for a show-stopping focal point to your planter. Next choose your “filler”- lower growing plants that cover the soil and fill out to create a dramatic and lush effect. And finally add a “spiller”- any plant that will trail and cascade over the side of your planter.
Make an impression. Whether you want to create great street appeal or brighten up a deck or patio area, a container garden is essential. In fact, no other outdoor accessory delivers more bang for the buck. Plus, container gardens offer not only the beauty of the plants and the creativity of the designer, but the pots themselves are often works of art. Select from a large variety of glazed containers, terra cotta and wood in a myriad of colors, sizes and finishes.
Choose your pot and plant material and our talented staff will custom design and plant it for you FREE of charge*. Whether you are planting vibrant annuals for full sun or lush and lovely foliage for shade, your container garden will be the star of your garden.
*In-store and with purchase only.
