If you’re preparing for spring planting and want to make sure you have the best looking garden of them all, you may want to do more than sow the ground and toss some seeds down.
Sometimes you need to add more texture to your garden than just plants can provide. This is where planter boxes will come in handy.
Using planters will not only allow you to add layers to your garden, but will also help you keep your plants from getting into fights with one another.
If you have a large garden area, this may not be a major issue, but if you have a smaller area that is going to be your designated garden space, you don’t want to purchase too large of of one or they will look like they are overwhelming the garden space.
No longer are these accessories just long thin rectangles. These days they come in a variety of shapes. While those long rectangles can help you define various locations within the garden, by acting as blossoming walls, there are also other shapes that will make great accents. Oval or circular planter boxes can make great centerpieces in various locations of the garden with a star plant or two inside them.
There are a few reasons you have to look into the material you are making your desired boxes out of. Will it hold up in your location? If you get very cold winters and very hot summers, some materials don’t really like extreme temperatures. Most will have recommendations on the environments they are to be used in.
