Adding Color with Architectural Planters

Adding Color with Architectural Planters

After a harsh Texas winter, spring has swiftly spoken, and the recent rains will soon have us surrounded by spectacular seasonal color. If you prefer more than garden beds to turn heads, add a little panache to your landscape palette with architectural planters. Boasting bountiful benefits in both beauty and functionality, architectural planters can house a more manageable spectrum of seasonal interest. Not only do they feature more flexibility, but they can enhance your ambiance and provide a sense of space like furniture in a room. Available in an array of shapes, materials, colors, and design styles, you can mix and mingle containers and the plants inside as easily as changing your wardrobe and accessories. Here’s how to harmonize architectural planters into your landscape:

Architectural planters allow freedom and flexibility. Swap out that terra cotta pot for a bold new blue dwelling space for your agave. Relocate your rosemary near the outdoor kitchen for accessible gourmet grilling. Create curb appeal with potted pansies in winter and salvia in summer. The options are endless.

Awaken your walkup and greet your guests with a treat by mixing texture and color in your architectural planter. Create curb appeal with interest by following floral arrangement basics of thrill, spill, and fill:
Towering climbers for the dazzling main attraction: juniper, agave, amaranth, bamboo, fountain grass
Soft options to provide a graceful spill: geranium, black-eyed susan, alyssum, zinnia, sweet potato vine
Plants for that understated fill: hyssop, basil, caladium, coleus, celosia, lantana, ornamental cabbage & kale
Pro Tip: Simplicity is elegant.
  • Agaves themselves are architectural sculptures in a pot, so keep your container simple to showcase its star
  • Try sticking to one color or two shades of a color for maximum impact
