This is an exciting season, when outdoor entertainment is in full swing, time for barbecuing enjoying your backyard, and really making time to perfect your garden. Investing the time in your garden this time of year helps it to be at its best all summer long. Proper maintenance, irrigation, care, and planning will help your landscape throughout the summertime.
Many times, our clients will come to us asking for ideas on how to easily add color, texture and enhance the landscape to their home. We always recommend investing in pots and planters for your property. Creating custom container gardens is an easy way to spruce up your curb appeal. Summer container gardens are a fun and vibrant season to work with plant materials and flowers.
Summer Container Gardens: An Easy Way to Add Color to Your Home this Summer Season
There is an endless variety of pots and planters, in an array of materials, sizes and shapes. It is easy to choose the best planters for your property, based on your style preference as well as your budget. When it comes to summer container gardens, think bold colors and textures. The plant materials and flowers that will bloom all summer long bring bursts of color this across the northeast.
A popular trend emerging for those looking to spend more money on their planters, is potted palms. It is possible to bring some palm trees to the Northeast! While they will only last for the season, they are a fun and eye-catching way to bring a Caribbean or West Coast feel to the tri-state area during the summertime. These planters will do best pool side, and in the sunshine all summer long.
Curb Appeal is everything! We always tell our clients to invest in their front yards. Clean lines in planting beds, decorative planters and urns, a nice clean even lawn, hanging planters, LED lighting for evening ambiance. Placing your summer container gardens on entry steps, bench or fountain near gardens in the front of the home is an easy way to boost curb appeal. These are all easy investments that attract passerby’s, as well as potential buyers. The front of the home is the first thing someone will see, so take the time to make sure it looks clean, charming and welcoming.
Container gardens are a year round investment, that can be changed seasonally. Scenic offers a custom garden enhancement division that will update, plant, maintain and design your container gardens for you, if a green thumb is not something that comes naturally to you. We are always here to help plan and to guide our clients in the best way possible. Feel free to use us as a resource for all your summer container gardens and landscape maintenance questions.
