A&J Landscape Center

More people are choosing the condo lifestyle, and we don’t see that slowing down. With condo living going up, flower bed landscaping is going down. Custom planters are becoming very popular to spruce up your front porch or back patio, and containers are the place to start. It can be a simple pot, ornate planter, hanging basket, or even a small trash can— anything that will hold soil but also be able to drain water through it. Next, you fill your container with a good, lightweight potting soil. After that, you can choose the plants that will bring your creation to life.

Start with a Thriller plant, which will be the tall centerpiece. It could be a Fountain Grass, Canna, shrub, etc. The Filler plants will be a step down in height from the Thriller and fill in much of the container. Your last plantings are called Spillers. They will cascade over the side of your container and tie everything together. Some options are Sweet Potato Vine, Trailing Vinca, and more. Last thing you will need to do is add a good all-around fertilizer to give your new plantings a great shot of nutrients.

You can find all of these items individually at A&J Landscape Center or purchase a hand-made completed planter that we have available at all times. Stop by and see the A&J team and they can help to make your outside space a retreat!
